Closing Blessing

You are a child of creation, a reflection of God,

No one can steal your beauty or reduce your worth,

Unless you let them…don’t let them!

You are a miracle of God’s love…

Never look at yourself and see anything less!

Your life is not a random stroke of chance,

You are part of a sovereign plan,

Loved into existence…loved for an eternity.

So, let the fire in your soul live,

And laugh and leap with joy!

And for the short time you walk upon this earth remember…

That you are the light of the world!
