Put yourself in a comfortable position.
Consider God's unconditional love for you. Breathe deeply.
Jesus said, ''Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.''

One cannot desire freedom from the Cross when one is especially chosen for the Cross.
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)

Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
