FOR OLD AGE
A reading from Benedictus: A Book of Blessings
by John O’Donohue, Bantam Press, London, 2007. p.87
May the light of your soul mind you.
May all your worry and anxiousness about your age
May you be given wisdom for the eyes of your soul
To see this as a time of gracious harvesting.
May you have the passion to heal what has hurt you,
And allow it to come closer and become one with you.
May you have great dignity,
And a sense of how free you are,
Above all, may you be given the wonderful gift
Of meeting the eternal light that is within you.
May you be blessed;
And may you find a wonderful love
In your self for your self.
Happy 60th Birthday David!
