There are days that we most need to stand in our strength and courage. Today, though, is a day for comfort. The Bible says, "Comfort yourselves together." Surround yourself with people who are comforting, who bring you a sense of safety and sanity. Ask for hugs. Move more slowly. Feel the power of Love with you that soothes and restores mentally and physically.
