Prompt from Lamentations 3:21-23:

“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end — they are new
every morning; great is God’s faithfulness.”

Kind hands hold me after I fall, giving me time to gather my strength once more and take my own steps.
May all those who need it this day, find steadfast support, and the kindness of strangers to remind them of faithful humanity.
