May you Breathe deeply,
Be still in the moment
Challenge your weaknesses
rejoice in your imperfection
Feel the cold
Rejoice in your warmth
Embrace your smallness,
Revel in your greatness,
Be unique, Be yourself
Gather together in the love of community
Do all this inspired by the knowledge that you are loved by God and are held in God’s warm embrace now and forever more.
