Low Cost Gift Ideas: Birthdays, Mama’s Day & Friends

Peaceful Wishes First

While penning these wishes, I had mothers in mind and also every soul who ever had a mother. Which is to say, everyone…everywhere. Because we are all indeed loved, lovely, and chosen by our divine loving creator. I pray them in a spirit of unknowing, from a heart captured by mystery and ever expanding with wonder.

I wish you peace away from the flurry of anxious blooming thoughts. May your attention land in a spacious meadow where silent lilies and sunflowers sway.

I wish you calm for stormy seas perhaps no one else sees and balmy weather on your journey.

WISHES for YOU

I wish you fiery golden courage for the challenges before you. May you find meditative moments to stir your innermost desires when hands fall open to receive blessing and strength.

I wish you wings to fly on gentle currents moved by trustworthy energy, moved by prayer.

I wish you hushed reverence as you return to your center and faith to discern every piercing doubt or fear.

May your eyes glimpse clearly the sacred way up and the sacred way all the way down.

I wish you strength to stand, strength to kneel, and strength to surrender to cares ahead.

May salty tears wept in loss and pain purify the ocean and turn the shore holy.

Oh, I wish you velvety warm sands beneath weary toes, beneath trembling fingers.

May melody find your ears when memory for the music fails; may mercy’s symphony break you open to an everlasting hymn.

I wish you protection from harms that bind and steadier steps upon this quaking earth.

May the sweetest slumbers undo every care…and sweet awakenings greet golden dawns.

I wish you acres of peace, friend…lavish peace upon which to build one, wild, lovely life.

Deep peace within the home of your heart…

right where you are.
