Blessing for Everyone Going Back to SchoolOn September 6, 2022 by Pam
As most of you know, Kate Bowler is one of my favourite podcasters. She is authentic, honest and is living through a HUGE dose of reality. She writes LOTS of blessings…so, I am sharing this one for everyone who is heading back to school….
This year has tilted toward the start of school again.,
but truth be told, we’re not ready.
We’re still hanging on to summer, to the promise it held
For long-awaited connections and celebrations,
for the refreshment for our bodies and souls
in water and sky and colour and sunlight,
and all those little moments given to us
where we could linger just a little longer.
Now that it’s over, we don’t want to let go.
The beauty, The freedom, All that was life-giving.
Let’s stretch it and extend it,
and maybe even blend it
into this coming school year.
Parents, students, teachers, all,
May your newly-structured days breathe with creativity,
your new duties be infused with delight.
As you write on those fresh, new calendars
May you trust that your plans are a lot like magic ink.
Much may seem to disappear into obscurity,
but whatever is done in love will remain.
