Ready? GO.

That time of the year is drawing near again — the holiday season, when the mad rush grabs us by the ankle and drags us through shops and long lines and parties with too much food and concerts and bake sales and charity drives until we’re thrown into a tailspin and don’t know which way is up.

We do it to ourselves, you know.

But then there are the ongoing daily commitments, the cooking, the dishes, the laundry, the homework assignments, the work projects. And we fall into bed, exhausted, unsure how we’ll make it through another day.

We question whether the rat race is worth it, and when will it ever end?

And if it never ends, is it really making any difference? Are my labors even noticed? Does anyone care? Or is my battered body and soul all for naught?

Then our eyes catch these words:


_Let us not

Let us not grow weary.

Our labors are not in vain. We do not go unnoticed.

So we press on in new strength granted from above until the fatigue presses heavy once again, and we hear:
