May this day bring relief from oppression in its many forms. May we know the comfort of stress removed. Endurance and resilience are tested daily, and we sometimes lose heart, feel challenged to continue. Let us seek to find alternative means of sustenance in the drought of doubt. Let us breathe deep, square our shoulders, wipe our brow, and continue. Sweetness and contentment await us if we merely endure. For strength and fortitude we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
