You Are An Immaculate Measure Of Grace


A Short Blessing For The New Year (Especially For Women of Color):

You are an immaculate measure of grace.

Every fiber, every molecule, every atom that builds and holds you together,
tells the story of how truly magnificent your presence on this earth is.

The space you take up is the space you bless.

Your body is the exclamation mark at the end of a love letter.
It is the Divine’s way of sharing Her excitement
Of you and for you.

But it didn’t always feel like it, did it?

Was this year beautiful, but also terrifying?
Did it have moments of pure joy and unruly pain?

Are you bound in anxieties and darkness and paralyzing fears?
Did you feel belittled, small, lonely and invisible?
Did you experience loss after loss after loss?
Did you grieve and weep and question everything?

That must have been so hard for you.

I will hold space for your pain and your tears.
You do not have to go through this alone.

There is nothing you can do or say or strive for
To escape the love that surrounds you.

You are an immaculate measure of grace.
Beloved just because you are here. Just because you exist.

Lovely, you are a love song that the Divine continues to sing.
You are a vessel for deep gladness and deep grief;
An expansive portal for the mysteries of life.

Thank you for being here.
You make this world a better place to live in.
