Steal Away

Steal away to a better place today.

Even if it’s only in your mind’s eye or in your memories.

Enjoy the warm breeze on your face, the cool sand on your toes.

Breathe deep and exhale slowly.

Receive the reprieve for the moment.

Just sit and soak and let all the worries and cares wash away with the tide.

Then, open your eyes, realize your reality, but don’t dread it.

Know that your strength has been restored, and you can escape away again tomorrow.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Philippians 4:8
