Advent Blessing :: Blessing the Way

Posted in Advent, Blessing at 1:00 am by davebayne

With every step
you take
this blessing rises up
to meet you.

It has been waiting
long ages for you.
Look close

and you can see
the layers of it,
how it has been fashioned
by those who walked
this road before you

how it has been created
of nothing but
their determination
and their dreaming,

how it has taken
its form
from an ancient hope
that drew them forward
and made a way for them
when no way could be
seen.

Look closer
and you will see
this blessing
is not finished,

that you are part
of the path
it is preparing

that you are how
this blessing means
to be a voice
within the wilderness

and a welcome
for the way.
