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.
