Source of all that is, the world is full of bumps we can’t see coming, and the bruises are adding up. Sustain us, we pray, while we tend to the bruises of others. 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.
