adorable-asleep-baby-2111997
May strong arms hold you
Caring hearts tend you
And may love await you at every step.
May you bring light to the home
Warmth to the heart
Joy to the soul
And love to the lives you touch.
May God surround this child
And bless this day.
May you have a sunbeam to warm you
Good luck to charm you
An angel to protect you
Laughter to cheer you
And faithful friends near you.
May God hold you
In the hollow of his hand
Forever and ever.

—Celtic Blessing

Love and Miracles

Let me always insist on miracles to
celebrate love.
And when all I love on earth
lies lifeless in my arms
let me offer it to you with such freedom of heart

That I am swept up into the heavens. Amen.
