#blogExodus: Bless






What is a blessing, anyway?
benediction
invocation
supplication
favor
grace
sanctification....

The dictionary says:

a special favor,
mercy,
or
benefit....

praise, devotion, worship

approval

good wishes

And what is it to bless?
how do we,
mere humans,
invoke God's favor?

What does it mean
to be
blessed?
To be grateful
to find divine favor
to feel that glow of

something

not quite definable
not quite tangible
not quite name-able....

what does it mean
to be
blessed?

like love, it must be felt
to
be
understood.
