Blessing/Prayer for a New Home

As you move may this beautiful prayer be true for you as you open a new chapter in your life..........

May the door of this home be wide enough

to receive all who hunger for love,

all who are lonely for friendship.

May it welcome all who have cares to unburden,

thanks to express, hopes to nurture.

May the door of this house be narrow enough to shut our pettiness and pride, envy and enmity.

May its threshold be no stubling block

to young or strained feet.

May it be too high to admit to complacency,

selfishness and harshness.

May this home be for all who enter,

the doorway to richness and a more meaningful life.

The Siddur of Shir Chadash
