As sometimes happens something beautiful crosses our path. Many years ago I stumbled(?) across the work of Kate Nowak, I don't recall how or when. From memory Kate sent out daily blessings, but foremost in my mind is the DVD Kate created, "May You Be Blessed". It meant a great deal to me at the time and touch my heart deeply, it still does. You can view a version here and the words are below.
May you be blessed
with all things good.
May your joys, like the stars at night,
be too numerous to count.
May your victories be more abundant
than all the grains of sand
on all the beaches
on all the oceans
in all the world.
May lack and struggle
only serve to make you stronger
and may beauty order and abundance
be your constant companions.
May every pathway you choose
lead to that which is pure and good and lovely.
May every doubt and fear
be replaced by a deep abiding trust
as you behold evidence of a Higher Power
all around you.
And when there is only darkness
and the storms of life are closing in
May the light at the core of your being
illuminate the world.
May you always be aware you are loved beyond measure
and may you be willing to love unconditionally in return.
May you always feel protected and cradled
in the arms of God,
like the cherished child you are.
And when you are tempted to judge
may you be reminded that we are all ONE
and that every thought you think
reverberates across the universe,
touching everyone and everything.
And when you are tempted to hold back,
may you remember that love flows best when
it flows freely
and it is in giving that we receive
the greatest gift.
May you always have music and laughter
and may a rainbow follow every storm
May gladness wash away every disappointment
may joy dissolve every sorrow
and my love ease every pain.
May every wound bring wisdom
and every trial bring triumph
and with each passing day
may you live more abundantly than the day before.
May you be blessed
And may others be blessed by you.
This is my heartfelt wish for you.
May you be blessed.
And why write about Kate now? Well she's been on my mind lately and as I review my website it's time I removed the links to Kate's sites. They've led nowhere for quite some time now and it's time I let them go. So Kate Nowak, where ever you are, what ever you are doing, my heartfelt thanks to you - May You Be Truly Blessed. And to those who have taken the time to read this far, I wish the same for you.
