For this Christmas Season, I leave you with this Christmas blessing–Merry Christmas!


Christmas Blessing


May the love of the newborn Christ surround you,


and release in you compassion and care for others;


May the joy of the Holy Family enrich you


in your traveling through life,


and in your discoveries;


May the hope of the baby of Bethlehem direct you in your birthing,


and in your departing;


May the insight of the Carpenter from Nazareth challenge you in your struggles,


and in your complacency;


And may the Peace of the risen Christ empower you in your hearts, in your homes, and in all of your longings;


And the Blessing of God Almighty,


The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,


be among you and remain with you, your families and all in the family of God’s creation, Now, throughout this Christmastime, and forevermore.  Amen


 ——Edgar Ruddock
