is for halt and hallelujah
There are times in life when nothing seems to go right.
No matter what you do or say it is wrong.
Days when you just want to give up.
These are the times when you need to stop.
Stop talking, stop running around, stop worrying.
Just stop doing whatever it is you are trying to do.
Take a breath, stretch, sit, get comfortable.
Let your mind wander, daydream, take a nap.
Let the world do its thing without you for awhile.
Then get up, look around and see that the world didn’t end.
Birds are singing, cats purring, dogs wagging tails, people still being people.
The only thing that is different is you.
You are calm, rested, relaxed, thinking clearly, sure and sassy.
Whatever the problem was may still be hanging around.
That’s okay, you can handle it.
Stand tall, look up, be in control.
Be confident and courageous, sure and strong.
Shout hallelujah and begin again!
Be someone who knows when to halt and when to shout hallelujah.
