When our reasons to smile may seem so few
and the rare smiles that come are hidden from view
under masks that protect but also deny
our emotions we hide behind seeing eyes.
May we turn to the One who will always remain
to comfort our souls and share in our pain;
the One who will carry our burdens and fears
and help us to smile- even through tears.
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
~Numbers 6:22-26 (NRSV)
