breathe in HOPE......
breathe out fear....
And a good hot cuppa tea...it is late afternoon or evening...by then tea is my thing. The warmth of the cup extends the gift of the prayer. It keeps me in place.
And I knit. Knitting also keeps me from jumping up too many times...to stay in one place and see the relaxation through. Knitting takes me deeper into myself--just like the prayer. I can shed layer after layer of 'what if' or 'why' or 'what now.' I can listen to my heart--and that is important because it takes me out of a worry mode--worry does nothing for you.
"Doing something with you hands, rather than your
head, is often the best route to clarity." (Joan Erikson in A Walk on the Beach)
Here's to our world
Here's to all my dear friends
Here's to all our loved ones
Here's to the stranger in need
Have a cuppa good hot tea.
