As the trees release their leaves so we let go of those things we need carry no longer.
Go in peace - - - into the green and gold, ochre and amber,
and crunch of leaves under foot, your journey bright and pure.
May you find grace in the love of friends, family, and community,
surprises in the midst of the commonplace and songs of thanks to fill your heart.
This day and always
Yesterday's benediction at New Hope UMC made me smile !
