Bless All the Daughters

Like me, one of Miska’s true joys is to speak a blessing over others. I think I must have learned this from her. Recently, Miska wrote a blessing for women in our little All Souls community. Receive these good words as your own – and they work just as well for those of us who go by the name ‘sons.’

Blessed are you, beloved daughters of God.
Lift up your hands, your eyes, your hearts
to the Living God.
Get into that soul posture of receiving.
May you continually re-orient your Being
to what is Real;
May you have the courage and grace
to receive Life from God in whatever
astonishing and unexpected ways He sends it.
Enter into the mystery!
May you hear Jesus calling your name–
calling your name–
inviting you to rise up, come forth into life
and be unbound.
Be blessed–may it be well with your soul–
for the Lord is your God,
and He is making all the sad and broken things come untrue
and He is making all things new.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit,
may it be so.

  1. Thank You sooo very, very much Miska! I need AND receive that blessing today! I pray the same for ALL of you! Thank you so much for sharing! Have a blessed, sacred time with loved ones next week Winn!

  2. Blessings to you! I am a mother of 3 daughters, the oldest of three daughters, the youngest of whom just had her own first daughter. Thanks for speaking life into this daunting task of being and raising daughters in the freedom of Christ.

  3. Winn, I just reposted Miska’s words on FB. As a father of 2 daughters, and as someone who needed those words today, I wanted to share them with my friends. Giving Miska credit of course.

words have a way of making friends. drop a few here.
