    KNOWING That I Am a Child of God and He Loves Me

    NEVER ALONE. GOD IS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME. I CAN FEEL HIS PRESENCE IN MY LIFE. I SEE EVIDENCE OF HIS LOVE AND GUIDANCE. HE KEEPS ME AND MY FAMILY. HIS WORD IS HIS LOVE LETTER TO ME. IT LETS ME KNOW THAT BEFORE I CAME OUT OF MY MOTHER'S WOMB HE SANCTIFIED ME AND ORDAINED GREAT...

    Hmm

    Physically, I find most comfort in walking through the rain, and in being hugged from behind by someone willing to simply be.... But the most comforting thing of all isn't tangible - it is simply the knowledge that I am loved.

    Comforting Moments

    His arms around me comforts me the most. solid and strong, soft and gentle, warm and loving always excepting and sometimes forgiving. The rocking of an old rowboat on the water. on a lazy summer afternoon. The sound of a trout jumping a few feet away leaving ripples on the...

    Several Things....

    Several things can bring me comfort when I am desperately in need of comforting. Jergens lotion but not just any Jergens. It has to be Cherry Almond Classic Scent. It reminds me of my deceased grandmother. When I am really down I rub this lotion all over my body, wrap up...

    I Have A Few

    1. Yoga or working out in general. It can calm my nerves or give me an outlet to unleash my rage in a constructive torrent of goodness. 2. Mint, the cooling feeling of this herbal essence coursing through my mouth, throat, and nostrils has always soothed me. It is certainly not...

    Eternally

    My mother, absorbed in a book, a mere few feet away. I love how I forget she is even around until I look up and see her almost frozen in time.

    My Friend

    I used to have really bad fights with my family, and there would be days where I'd just get so upset that I'd lock myself in the bathroom and start crying.  So I'd call up my friend Claire and she would come get me and me back to her house. Once when I had a particularly...

    Safe

    It looks foolish, so I try to avoid doing this in public... but the thing I find most comforting is rocking, if possible with a stuffed animal.  Back and forth like a rocking chair, my arms full of furry warmth.  Even right out of a bad flashback it helps me feel safe and warm...

    A Blanket and Coffee!

    I use to have an old ratty blanket for comfort. I thought I'd never get rid of it... but I did! I have a new one now, much better than the old one. So, I get comfort on the cold days, like today! I hide under it and sip hot coffee! It always gives me a nice feeling...

    Ko-ko Lenka...

    A Slovakian lullaby my grandmother taught me as a child. Nothing is scary if I sing that song. Just ask my friends! Even they are comforted by it! ...I've sung it to many of them when they're scared.

    Blankie

    There are 3 things in this world that will always comfort me, no matter how bad things get: 1. My blankie.  I've had it since birth.  I'm 31 years old.  And I still can't sleep without it. 2. My mom used to do this thing where she'd ever so gently run her fingers...

    Hugs

    There is nothing more comparable than a heartfelt hug from someone you love. Hugs project with a touch that which the mouth cannot speak. It says how very loved you truly are. I need one now.

    Taking Time Out

    I find  walking in a quiet country lane comforts me providing the space to reflect on all I have experienced including that while walking itself. Alternatively talking or messaging a friend helps if it's just reassurance I'm looking for.

    The Theory...

    The theory of better times. That is the only thing that makes me feel better about any situation when it is at the most bleek of points. Now, the counter to that is: The realization when those better times never happen. On the other hand, the theory of any one single thing that...
