Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a blessing prayer for freedom

As the bird soars high
In the free holding of the wind,
Clear of the certainty of ground,,
Opening the imagination of wings
Into the grace of emptiness
To fulfill new voyagings,
May your life awaken
To the call of its freedom

As the ocean absolves itself
Of the expectation of land,
Approaching only 
In the form of waves      
to make limit of the threshold
where water meets sand
May your heart know the patience
and the joy of seeing infinity from limitation.

May we see all endings as another beginning
May we lean into who we were created to be
and not who we default to be

May we see all limitations as freedom.


(Adapted from "The Space Between Us" by John O'Donohue)
