“May the Angels in their beauty bless you.

May they turn toward you streams of blessing.

May the Angel of Awakening stir your heart

To come alive to the eternal within you,

To all the invitations that quietly surround you.”

~ John O’Donohue (To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings)

Happy Second Day of Christmas — the day that Eastern Orthodox Christians link with the ‘Synaxis of the Theotokos’, or ‘Mother of God’, honoring Mother Mary for delivering the Christ Child into the world.

May the Spirit of the Season surround you, embrace you, and fill you, and go before you and make clear and straight your way.

An invitation for you: Add your ‘mojo’ to help create a Blessing Wave to begin the new calendar year …

Choose a date (or two or three) and add your good wish, blessing, or bit of inspiration to the ‘Blog Blesstival” — learn more about it in this Sophia’s Children post.

Sow and reap the ‘good medicine’ of ‘blessing’ (it’s an energy art, too).

Blog Blesstival – Help Start the Year with a Wave of Blessing

(You can participate via your blog, web site, or Facebook … you’ll find the details at the Blesstival link).

Much Agape (a.k.a. Big Love),
