May you be so aware of Abba’s constant nearness, His involvement in it all, that you readily give way to thanks. To unashamed praise with hands high or bodies face down on the floor.  

May you be able to take everything that weighs you down, and throw it down where it belongs at the foot of the cross.  For that is the only way to find peace.  

May you be able to see the scarlet cord that held you together this year – for your whole life even.  And in that sacred moment when you do see it, may your soul erupt in worship.  

May you have eyes that hunt for beauty.  

May you have ears that listen for joy.   

May your mind find stillness and let go of the strife.

May you not forget His mercy, His grace that covers every single moment of every single day you walk this earth as His daughter.  

May you be stunned by His love for you.  And if the shock of His immense love knocks you over, may you find it there to catch you too. 

May you walk in truth, His truth that tears down lies, builds new identities and leaves a sweet scent everywhere you go. 

Drenched in Grace.  Covered by mercy.  Sustained by peace.  Emboldened by love.  Eternally grateful. 

This is who you are.

May you have hands ready to reach out. 

May you have a body willing to be held, with safe arms there to enclose you. 

May you be the kind of woman for whom others give thanks.         

May you live with a thankful heart as a woman who is loved. 

May your heart find peace as it rests in the One who made you.

A Thanksgiving Blessing for Him

May you be so aware of Abba’s constant nearness, His involvement in it all, that you readily give way to thanks. To unashamed praise with hands high or bodies face down on the floor. 

May you be able to take everything that weighs you down, and throw it down where it belongs at the foot of the cross.  For that is the only way to find peace. 

May you be able to see the scarlet cord that held you together this year – for your whole life even.  And in that sacred moment when you do see it, may your soul erupt in worship. 

May you have eyes that hunt for beauty.  

May you have ears that listen for joy.  

May your mind find stillness and let go of the strife.

May you not forget His mercy, His grace that covers every single moment of every single day you walk this earth as His son. 

May you be stunned by His love for you.  And if the shock of His immense love knocks you over, may you find it there to catch you too.

May you walk in truth, His truth that tears down lies, builds new identities and leaves a sweet scent everywhere you go. 

Drenched in Grace.  Covered by mercy.  Sustained by peace.  Emboldened by love.  Eternally grateful.

This is who you are.

May you have hands ready to reach out. May you have a body willing to hold, with safe arms ready to embrace. May you be the kind of man for whom others give thanks.

May you live with a thankful heart as a man who is capable. 

May your heart find peace as it rests in the One who made you.
