through the holy days

Through the holidays—
the holydays—

amidst the vacationing,
the traveling,
the family and friends,
the resting,
the worship,
the celebrating,
the gifting,
the excitement,
the unwrapping,
the mess,
the trying on,
the reading of,
the playing with,
the feasting on,
the sweets,
the napping,
the shopping,
the exchanging,
the calling and texting and skyping,
the thank-yous,
the left-overs,
the love,

we remember to pray
for those celebrating more than the season,
and for those grieving despite the season.

Amen.
