“May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.
May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done. Amen.”
As he read the third blessing about tears, I couldn’t help but think of my friends at the Mission. Tears filled my eyes, and I thanked God for giving me the opportunity to love these dear ones.
May God truly bless each one of us with discomfort, anger, tears, and especially foolishness!
