God encompass you

A blessing for you.

The butterfly: symbol of the resurrection.

Throughout the day the good God encompass you;

throughout the night the saving God enfold you;

throughout your life, the loving God behold you.

And the blessing of God,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

be in you and remain with you forever. Amen

David Adam, The Open Gate: Celtic Prayers for Growing Spiritually
(Harrisburg, PA: Morehouse Publishing, 1995) p. 111

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
