“Daily Blessing” (Madeleine L’Engle)

We must bless without wanting to manipulate. Without insisting that everything be straightened out right now. Without insisting that our truth be known.  This means simply turning whoever it is we need to bless over to God, knowing that God’s powerful love will do what our own feeble love or lack of it won’t.

I have suggested that it is a good practice to believe in six impossible things every morning before breakfast, like the White Queen in Through the Looking Glass. It is also salutary to bless six people I don’t much like every morning before breakfast.
