Benedictions: “Prayer for a Drop in the Bucket

Blessed are the droplets, for they shall fill the bucket to overflowing.

Blessed are they who know there is a bucket, for they shall be filled with hope.

Blessed are they who can see beyond their lifetimes, for they shall walk in faith that their work will not be in vain.

Blessed are we when we know we only appear so small because what we are creating is so big.

Blessed are we who are part of one another.

Blessed are we when we give new life and light to others, for we will live more richly ourselves.

Blessed be.
