On this, the Tenth Day of Christmas, a gentle reminder to breathe when life becomes hectic, when worries are everpresent, when grief overwhelms, and when political situations seem overwhelming.
Many people take the gift of breath for granted. Those with asthma etc., don’t.
Breath is a gift.
It only takes a moment to breathe a deep breath
– the kind where the belly moves, but the shoulders don’t.
Breathe in … healing, wholeness, hope, peace, love.
Breathe out … anxiety, pain, fear, grief, stress.
The results can be calming, healing, and soul-nourishing.
May we remember and be thankful for the gift of our breath.
