Pastor and poet Meta Herrick Carlson M.Div. ‘08 released her book “Ordinary Blessings, Prayers, Poems, and Meditations for Everyday Life” this month. These collections offer respite from the hectic and fast pace of everyday life. Use this piece to inspire, calm and encourage you in hard times.
“Ordinary Blessings” collects blessings for loving yourself, enduring hard things, authenticity, living with others, and the rhythms of each day. Pause, take a deep breath and find solace in these words of hope and affirmation.
Meghan Larissa Good, author of The Bible Unwrapped: Making Sense of Scripture Today finds this collection to be “refreshingly honest, funny, and kind. “Ordinary Blessings” enables people of any, or no, faith tradition to consider what it means to offer blessings in the face of our day-to-day lived experiences.”
