Christmas Blessing

May God give us

The strength and determination of a woman
laboring to deliver new life

The encouragement and wisdom of a midwife
helping another to bring forth new life

The care and nurture of a shepherd
fiercely protecting new life

The wonder and curiosity of a baby
discovering the happiness and work of life

The joy and thanksgiving of Angels
delighting in new life

And grace in receiving
even the most humble of gifts.

May we keep all these things and ponder them in our hearts.

Blessing by Lynn Willis
