A Blessing to Comfort


Updated: August 12, 2006

For Those Who are Living with Dying

About the Blessing

This special wish was written to accompany a gift for a woman facing a terminal illness. When composing the blessing I tried to put myself in the place of someone who was living with a terminal illness and think of what words I might find soothing and comforting.

This blessing has been shared with other families facing the inevitable loss and coping with the terminal illness of a loved one. It is shared here to bring words of comfort for those who read it.

    Comforting Blessing

    May you see the light in the darkness during these challenging times.

    May you feel the loving presence of those who hold you in their thoughts & prayers.

    May your spirit find what it needs to sustain you on this journey.

    May you discover your inner strength & face all difficulties with dignity & grace.

    May you be filled with comfort, love, strength, grace & a lasting sense of peace.
