God, you created my skin, nerves, muscles and linked them with my mind and soul. And for this I’m forever grateful.
Today I’m struggling with this great body-mind-spirit connection. As my heart breaks like the waves crashing against rocks, my body says “no more.”
My neck seizes with the knowledge that he won’t be returning. My tears have been replaced by heart palpitations. My stomach churns at the dread of days ahead.
My mind can’t shake this anguish, and my body absorbs each droplet of grief’s mist.
Great Designer of my heart and brain and energy, wrap me in blankets of peace. May I stop feeling suffocated by squalls of despair, and may my body experience healing in this season of sadness.
