GRACEnotes, March 15
Last week I asked our Tuesday lunch bunch to each write a one-line blessing. In honor of the Grace Lutheran 75th Anniversary festivities this past weekend, I took those short blessings and stitched them together into the benediction I gave at the anniversary banquet Saturday. As Lutheran Campus Ministry at OSU birthed the congregation, it seemed appropriate and fitting that the current generation of students add its blessing to the congregation in this way. I thought you might like to see how it turned out and so I include it here today:
You are enough!
There is no condemnation for those... who walk in the Spirit (Rom. 8:1).
Do not worry about your faults; they are actually strengths better-suited for other circumstances.
Wherever you find yourself and whomever you're with, may God touch your life, fill you with peace, and prepare you to love those around you.
May God be glorified through the story of your life.
May God's sun warm you, his rain cool you, his trees shade you, and his love bless you in all you do.
May your heart be grateful and generous.
May you find peace, purpose, and prosperity in the direction you lead your life.
May God's love and guidance be with you the coming weeks – and always.
God give you enough strength and courage every day to face any and all obstacles that come your way, that you may be empathetic toward others and proactive in helping those who need it – so that you go in peace to love and serve the Lord!
May God bless you and keep your socks dry.
Blessings to you, and to your dog, and your cat too!
