bless those who stay.
May you who dare new adventures be safe and challenged, healthy and hopeful.
May you who remain know satisfaction in your calling.
May you who stay to make a home anew be renewed in your own lives.
May you who depart for new homes find new loves and cares, always
remembering the love you have known here.
May we all be blessed in our comings and goings, and know, as we depart,
that the same sun shine on us all, wherever we may be. Amen
