I hope as you make this sacred journey
That the love of the Lord shins down upon your face,
Filling you with His unending grace and strength,
Uplifting your very heart and soul.
I hope as you walk along,
You truly feel Jesus walking beside you
As your companion and friend.
The journey must be a mystery,
And how much like life that metaphor is.
We have no idea when we’re children
Where we will be when we’re grown,
And even in five days, months, or years,
We have no idea where we could be.
Keep an open mind and an open heart,
And allow God to be your guide,
And you will never become lost.
“He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake…”
God bless you and keep you and grant you peace.
