The Samaritan Connection Newsletter - Fall 2023 - 7

Thank you to our
Volunteers!
A big shoutout to our volunteers who
donated their time recently for our
Silent Samaritan Luncheon mailing!
A Blessing at the Change of Seasons
As seasons begin a more obvious shift
and the lessons of summer
age, and settle, and deepen,
may you find peace.
May the lessons of the closing season bear fruit.
May you have patience with what's still unknown and unsettled, inside and out.
May you grow courage in its company.
May you experience a calming and strengthening mix of acceptance and strategic
action in relation to it.
May your capacity to
be with what is,
and create desired change,
grow.
May fresh hope
touch the places in your mind
and heart
and life
that feel weary and hopeless.
Hope like a sunrise
that melts mist
and adds warmth to the shadows
and invites birds to sing again.
Invites flowers to show their faces.
May the season that's arriving
bring you welcome gifts.
And now AND as the wheel turns,
may you befriend the silence
that's underneath and around and inside everything.
Touch it with your awareness.
See if you can find its company healing.
