Dear Fellow Friends of Jesus,
Here’s a little something from a book I consider a cherished companion. It’s a little collection of table prayers titled Saying Grace: Blessings for the Family Table. This is one that goes far being offering thanks for a meal:
Hold on to what is good
even if it is a handful of the earth.
Hold on to what you believe
even if it is a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do
even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life
even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand
even when I have gone away from you.
Blessings to all of you, and especially those who are mourning the loss of those whose hand you deeply long to hold this Mother’s Day.
Peace be with you always, Pastor Lisa
