we are not alone

Our God,

We pause,
amidst it all,
to remember—
to be reminded—
of more.
More than our schedules,
more than our to-dos,
our concerns and fears,
prides and joys.

To be reminded that all we feel,
others do too,
and that what others feel,
we do too.
To locate our specifics
within the larger truth
that as unique and personal as they are,
they’re also not unique.

We are bound together
in the intimacy of our deepest truths.
Let false pride not keep us apart.

We pause,
amidst it all,
to remember,
to remember and to celebrate.
We are not alone.
No one is alone.

Thank you,
for creating us thus.
Thank you for being with us thus.

Amen.
