Psalm 139:13

You created my inmost being and stitched me together in my mother's womb.


From John O'Donohue's blessing titled - For Solitude


May you have respect for your individuality and difference.


May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,

that you have a special destiny here,

that behind the facade of your life

there is something beautiful and eternal happening.


May you learn to see your self

with the same delight

pride, and expectation

with which God sees you in every moment.
