A Healing Space Friday Five

I am an enthusiastic newspaper reader. Lately, however, world events have made it hard to read and process the pain in the world around me. Perhaps you have struggled with this, too.

So, with the events of the violence and tragedy from the Boston Marathon fresh in our memories, I thought it would be good for us to focus on where as RevGalBlogPals, we find healing, peace and strengthening. As a chaplain, there are days where I never seem to catch my breath, and invariably, those are the days that I need it the most! So with all this in mind, share with us these healing things

1. A piece of music

2. A place

3. A favorite food (they call it "comfort food" for a reason)

4. A recreational pastime (that you watch or participate in)

5. A poem, Scripture passage or other literature that speaks to comfort you.

BONUS: People, animals, friends, family - share a picture of one or many of these who warm your heart.

As always, let us know you played in the comments, by linking to your post with the following formula!
