Wednesday’s Weekly Blessing

a girl waves goodbye as she leaves for school
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.
