December Blessing

On this good day,
may each thing that comes your way
bring with it a clear discernment
and a ready response.

May you bring to each moment
grace
and peace
and goodness.

May your eye be as clear
as a winter’s dawning
and your heart as pure
as a prairie sky.

May you tend to the things of your duty
with genuine pleasure
in the doing.

May you work without measure of others,
surrendering yourself to the counting of the Lord
and trusting fully that His reward
will be sufficient for the labor.

And when your day is done,
may you lie down
to good rest
undisturbed by regret
and blessed by the memory
of what you have given
and received
on this good day.
