After a recent visit here, the following was sent to us from Sarah, who lives in Kearney, Nebraska, with her husband and children.

The Blessings of Holy Archangel Michael

& All Angels Skete

May the breeze through the trees whisper gentle reminders of God's promises across your face.

 

May the sun shine down rays of God's warm love upon your skin

 

May the chapel provide a shelter from the storms of life.

May the sweet hymns remind you to join in the angels ceaseless praise to God.

May the many icons remind you of those who have paved the way and intercede for us.

May the dogs, birds, deer and other wildlife remind you that all creation praises God.

May the wildflowers remind you to bloom where you are planted.

May the winding trails lead you to walk with God.

May the quiet afternoons be a time of thanksgiving for all God's blessings.

May the ponds remind you of the ever-present Living Water.

May the bells call you sweetly to the joyful times of prayer.

May the simplicity of life cause you to find contentment in less.

May the endless rows of grapevines remind you to cling to the One True Vine.

May the fulfillment of every day tasks help you to de-clutter your life and fill it with the joy of Christ in each and every moment.

May the gentle voices and kind smiles of the monastics comfort you and provide inspiration on your journey.

May you find this holy place a piece of heaven on earth and may the love that abundantly pours out of those living here remind you of God's endless love and mercy.

Glory to God for all things!
