Lenten Meditation: Home Blessing


Your house is Love’s house.

It is a sanctuary, a garden,

A safe haven.

May it be delightful.

May it be a home that encourages

Creativity and peace,

Togetherness and private time.

May it be an environment

That celebrates life, untidy and ever flowing

May simplicity be honored in your house.

Valuing love above all else.

May daily chores and small moments

All be approached with reverence and with love.

Mistakes may be seen as lessons learned.

Kindness, forgiveness, laughter, joy

And calm enthusiasm

Will nourish all who enter through its doors.

May all who visit leave refreshed.

May all who live in your house

Live in contentment and harmony,

Dreaming beautiful dreams,

Rejoicing in the way things are.
