Be Swift To Love

Life is short,

And we do not have much time

to gladden the hearts of those who

make the journey with us.

So… be swift to love,

and make haste to be kind.

And the blessing of God,

who made us,

who loves us,

and who travels with us

be with you now and forever.

These are beautiful images and words. Though I guess I am just old fashioned. Jesus was not only a "master" but God.

I absolutely love these words and repeat them to myself every day as a short centering exercise. Our rector uses them often at the beginning of his closing blessing, and the words always give me chills. I think they complete a perfect benediction to send us into the world for another week. Thank you for sharing them here.
