Respite from a Pandemic

By Cynthia Cady Stanton | Featured Author


When in isolation,
and the feeling overwhelms,
remember the love within you.
Look to your heart
and the fullness there,
the fullness that swells
with your sweet attention to it.

You are not alone.

You are the branch
which stretches and shades
from every tree you have sat under.
You are the sea spray
that has kissed your face
from every stroll on the beach.
You are the joy
of your beloved pet
who always blesses you
with pure affection.
You are the song
that the morning bird sings.
You are even the touch
of every hand held
and every embrace shared.

Every heart
contains these wonders
for they have been memorized
within its secret and divine chambers.
Therefore your heart is the keeper
and she waits for you.
Learning to trust her
allows you to relax into your life
and glow as designed to do so
no matter what is happening
outside of you.

Those who know this,
know how to live from the inside.
They know how to touch God.

It is that simple.

The Presence lives in you
…so you are not alone.

Beautiful words during trying times. Thank you, Cynthia, for this timely reminder.
Wishing everyone a safe and restful weekend.
💙
