Housewarming Blessing

When our friends recently purchased their new-old house in an historic part of the city, it reminded me of “going home”. In recognition of this event, I created a few herbal concoctions and composed this blessing for their home:

Bread, so that you may never know hunger
Wine, so that you may never know thirst
Pet Nutrients, to welcome all family members home
Bug Repellant, to prevent unwelcome guests, and
A Besom, to keep your threshold clean and to leap over hand in hand so that you may always know love.

They will be celebrating their 28th wedding anniversary this weekend together, in the timeless beauty of their blessed home and the love, they share, with everyone.  Congratulations!
