A Minister's Farewell

May love guide you on your journey forward,
joy meet you at every turn,
and hope be your daily practice.

May gratitude companion you,
compassion embolden you,
and open-hearted courage be your unending choice.

May peace challenge you, dear ones,
generosity empower you,
and may you know, in every day,
that you are enough, just exactly as you are,
and you are not alone.

Blessed be, ashe, and farewell.
