Help us remember that as we hold the cares of the many in our hearts and hands, you are holding us. Help us recognize that the breeze that flips the still-green leaves is the sign of your Spirit-presence; clouds, a shield; rays of light, the renewing of our souls. Soothe us as we sigh, caress us as we fold, hold us as we sag. Help us remember that we are held, and that you never let us go.
