A Blessing for the Divorced or Separated
Blessing

For all who left a relationship in order to save your heart, may your own heartbeat be your blessing. Its rhythm, its particular kinships, its unique rhythm. May you know your own heart as God's blessing.

For all who had to set boundaries in order to keep your mind intact, may your own mind be your blessing. Its integrity, its edginess, its willingness to wonder and to know. May you know your own mind as God's blessing.

For all who had to let go in order to protect your body, your safety, those you love, may your body be your blessing. Its strength, its beauty, its imperfect humanity. May you know your own body as blessing.

For all who had to walk away in order to save your spirit, may your own spirit be your blessing. Its spaciousness, breath, its deep and abiding wisdom. May you know your own spirit as blessing.

Heart, mind, body, spirit. May you know your own wholeness, reconstituting yourself as you separate from this relationship, walking away in love and in blessing. May you walk toward more love, knowing that you walk squarely in God's sight and with God's blessing.
