A Blessing for Christmas by Joyce Rupp

Let the Star of Hope blaze through discouragement, 
doubt, and disgruntledness. 
Let the Star of Kindness radiate through 
what you think, feel, and do today. 
Let the Star of Remembrance glitter in thoughts 
of good people and good deeds. 
Let the Star of Laughter sparkle in your eyes 
and in your smile. 
Let the Star of Joy dance in the corners 
of your heart that have forgotten to sing. 
Let the Star of Patience permeate
that which you find difficult and irritable. 
Let the Star of Love encompass your heart,
a ray of welcome for everyone you meet.
