Comings and Goings
As our lives trace their individual ways through time and place,
we find ourselves walking together here and there, …for a time,
…and then moving on.
These confluences of our lives are no small matter,
…for as our lives flow as one for a time,
we pass something of ourselves to one another,
…and we are changed,
and the courses of our lives altered,
…perhaps a little, …sometimes more.
But we are always somehow the better for having met.
May the best of our time together linger long with us all,
…lighting the way for works just begun in us..
May you be enriched by that part of us that travels with you,
even as we are blessed by that part of you that continues in us.
Spirit of Grace,
however these comings and goings mark our paths,
we are privileged to remain one as companions in “The Way,”
…continuing in our living and loving, and learning ,
…and ever looking forward to whatever comes next.
