There is a welcoming portal we have when entering our unknowns.
Ijeoma, meaning ‘safe journey’ in the Igbo language, uniquely describes this experience.
Ijeoma. A prayer. A promise. A covenant.
Ijeoma. A knowing that all journeys may not initially be smooth, but so remains our prayer.
Ijeoma. That for the days in which sea-like transitions seem engulfing, smooth & steady shores billow our landing.
Ijeoma, as you take time to unearth the deep-rooted parts of you, previously unknown.
Ijeoma, as new seasons, new months, new ventures, new opportunities, begin.
Ijeoma, as you choose to return to yourself, wiser each time, unashamedly, authentically, freely.
Ijeoma, as multiple voices petition on your behalf when personal prayers are difficult.
May each step forward and each step returning be blessed.
May your days be ever kissed with blessings.
May your nights be filled with restoration.
May grace abound you.
May peace surround you.
Smooth landings. Smooth landings.
