A Toast

For things beautiful, lovely, and bright
For sacred moments of laughter, sharing, and healing
For freedom of movement, of dance, and song
For the vulnerability to care and the courage to reflect
I am grateful

To the disappointments, pain, and sorrow
To the moments of anger, loneliness, and despair
To all mistakes, wrongs endured, and fears ensued
I take my leave

For immanuel, God with us
and God with us still.

Here’s to a new year
For good, amidst bad, in hope
