A Mid-Week Blessing

May this good day bring you good
and may you bring good
into the moments you share with others.

May the moments you share with others
and they share with you
leave you both the better.

May this good morning find you focused
on things that are good and pleasant,
things worthy of praise,

and may such things as are pure and lovely
bring good into your heart
and give you cause to bid good to others.

May the work of your hands
on this good day
be blessed and fruitful,

bearing witness
of the Light that lives within you,
yielding proof of a changed nature.

May your words on this good day
be anointed with wisdom and grace
and may every situation that you face

find its ending in peace:
healing where healing is needed,
a gentle surrender to a better nature.

May all that rages around and within you
be calmed by that Greater Knowing,
a deeper humility that understands

that gentleness controls the stronger hand,
that the good of others matters more,
that love conquers all things,

and that good is in rich store
for those who bring good
to others.
