When the Holidays Have Ended: A Blessing for the Return to Every Day Life

After the holidays have ended,
What is there to gaze upon?
And what is there to praise?

When the last word is uttered
And the last song is sung 
Are we to be numbed by the ordinary? 
Or open to something extraordinary, still?
 
As we prepare to take in the rounds of our joy, 
Let us remember the circles of our days.
And that every "Beginning"
"Ending"
And "During"
Contains the Power
And the Glory
And the Journey
To return us to the greatest source we have been given:
The blessed possibility of being alive.
