sharing blessings

Last Tuesday I had the incredible pleasure of being M.C. at a birthday party. Not just any party. This was the 40th birthday party
of our church’s 3F’s group, 3F’s being Fun, Friendship, Fellowship. It was a lovely event, capped by the launch of a fantastic booklet of 40 stories … autobios in most cases of members’ lives.  There’s some truly touching stuff in that book.

Secretary Di Perkins (such a blessing herself) invited me to write a Foreword and a Blessing for the publication.  It’s below.  This year I’ve been pleased how I’ve responded to a personal challenge to do more creative writing (i.e. beyond songwriting 🙂
Back to “blessing”, just need to say that members of our 3Fs group continue to be a blessing to me, each other and so many beyond.


Peace be with you.

In all things
At all times
Through every season
remember God promises
to never let you go. Never!

Let your life – heart and mind, everything
be filled with all that is true, noble,
authentic and gracious.

Let your life be filled
with the best of things
All that’s beautiful
All that brings joy
All that brings hope
All that brings laughter
All that brings love
All that brings truth
All that encourages friendship
All that brings praise

Live out all that’s bound up
in the wonders of God’s life
Knowing that God
wants the best for all creation
including your special part in it!

Know that God “will work you
into his most excellent harmonies”.
and continue to hold you
in the palm of God’s loving hand.
