Benediction - Love Is Our Priority

When love is our priority, we open space
in our lives to experience wonder,
strangers become friends and
superficial boundaries disappear.

The tame, sometimes dried-up streams of love
that originate in our souls become overflowing, rushing torrents.

In this week, may we honor God, who we readily say that we love,
by loving ourselves and our neighbors,
both of whom are sometimes too difficult to fully love.

God, keep yourself - in all the countless forms that you take -
on our radar.  May love be our top priority;
let it be the lens through which we see the world around us.
