Thursday Evening Blessings

Peace in the longing,
peace in the leaving,
peace in the letting go.
In every step, peace.

May you have food in the bowl, to feed what is basic,
and nourishment in the heart, to feed hungers more wild.
May the God of the feast draw you to a welcome table
where you know communion and delight and rest.

May you have
the vision to recognize
the door that is yours,
courage to open it,
wisdom to walk through.

In the pondering of your past,
in the contemplation of your present,
in the hungers that persist
and in those that fall away:
peace to you, deep peace.
