Servant of God, Thea Bowman Prayer

Categories: Other, Pilgrimage Event

Prayer by Servant of God Sr. Thea Bowman
Creator God, Sr. Thea told us that, “if we walk on, and talk on, and work on, and pray on, and hold on, and love on in faith, we shall overcome. Overcome weakness, overcome fatigue, overcome exhaustion, overcome pain and loneliness, overcome frustration, overcome the prejudices and the stereotypes, the anxieties, the grief, the fear, the negative attitudes–all those barriers and boundaries that keep us apart, overcome racism and classism and sexism and materialism, all those ‘isms’ that keep us apart.” We ask you this, through your Son, the Prince of Peace, and in the Spirit of Hope, One God for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Lost Child – To Honor You

Categories: Pilgrimage Event

Shared by one of our Lost Child pilgrims during our time together.

To Honor You

To honor you, I get up everyday and take a breath.

And start another day without you in it.

To honor you, I laugh and love with those who knew your smile

And the way your eyes twinkled with mischief and secret knowledge.

To honor you, I take the time to appreciate everyone I love,

I know now there is no guarantee of days or hours spent in their presence.

To honor you, I listen to music you would have liked,

And sing at the top of my lungs, with the windows rolled down.

To honor you, I take chances, say what I feel, hold nothing back,

Risk making a fool of myself, dance every dance.

You were my light, my heart, my gift of love, from the very highest source.

So everyday, I vow to make a difference, share a smile, live, laugh and love.

Now I live for us both, so all I do, I do to honor you.

****

We hope you find comfort in this beautiful honor to a lost child.
