PR AYER 6 : BUBBLE CEREMONY
Bubbles are magical. They make us smile. They make us giggle.
They remind us of simple joys and simple times.
Bubbles are brief. They are here for just a moment,
sparkling, bouncing, shimmering.
Then, having completed their task, they are gone.
Left behind is the memory of the joy and the experience.
So, as we watch these bubbles dancing in the air,
let us be thankful for [[NAME]’s time on earth.
It was not long enough for anyone here,
but [NAME] completed his/her task,
brought joy, light and energy into the world.
Now his/her task is completed.
While it makes us sad to not have him/her in your world,
you can remember this sparkling life that bounced through your lives
and left memories that will stay with you forever.
Amen.
