Walls for the Wind Blessing
Here is one of my favorites...
This Christmas may you have…
“Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks bedside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.”
Every time I read this little blessing I think of it as a prayer for homeless people. I pray they too will have walls for the wind this Christmas and throughout the year.
