Wednesday’s Weekly Blessing – Go with God

Black Man Waving cartoon

Our parting remark when we take leave of people is often a simple “goodbye.”

Recently I was reminded that, “goodbye” originally meant, “God be with you.” In Spanish, a bidding of farewell is “Vaya con Dios,” which means “Go with God.”

I like that concept: going with God.

This week, as you send your kids back to school, send them off with this simple blessing:

Go with God.
