A Blessing for the Present Moment

01 Jul
July 1, 2013

May you treasure wisely this jeweled, gilded time

And cherish each day as an extra grace

Whose heedless loss would be a tragic crime

In today’s tasks may you find God’s tender face

May you know that to miss love’s smallest chance

Is a lost opportunity, a senseless waste

May you see need in every anxious glance

May you sort out of the dull and common place

An invitation to God’s merry, manic dance

And may the Lord of the Dance bless you

As he invites you to the dance of the hallowed present.

~Andrew M. Greely, A book of Irish American Blessings and Prayers
