SOURCE OF ALL BLESSINGS,
you bless us with surf, with its
ever new moods and voices, its
thunder, its whisper, its hissing, its
growl, its groan, its laughter, its
music, its roar; with its shades of
gray and green and blue and brown
and its rainbows now and then;
with its spray, its foam, its spit;
and with its innumerable smells I
cannot name. May I, no matter how
far away from the ocean, hear, see,
smell, and feel it in my heart.
Sense how it feels to honor the changing activity, sounds, and rhythm of surf. When we notice the range of expressions of that which emerges from the fullness, depth, and majesty of the ocean, we can expand our capacity to appreciate diversity that comes from a single source.
“May this patchwork quilt of blessings help to sharpen your taste for the gift of life in its innumerable facets,” Br. David writes. “May you grow ever more blessed, ever more able to bless.”
