May the spirit of peace dwell with you.
May hope and joy be daily companions.
When trouble comes, may friends be by your side.
May you gain wisdom.
May you savor beauty.
May you always keep learning, yet still treasure familiar gifts.
In your presence, may others find joy and peace.
May you receive gifts graciously, and give gifts generously.
May you never know want, yet live always with the holy gifts of longing and desire.
May time flow lightly, never hang heavy.
May fear come only to visit, but never reside in your soul.
In a world of noise and conflict, may you drink deeply from springs of quiet and calm.
