Have you ever had one of those times where the stress was about all you could take? You keep putting one foot in front of the other, but it gets harder. It’s like a weight. Where do you go when this happens?

I had a wonderful reminder yesterday of where I go. Home. With my wife. She is solace personified. After a day with her I felt more like myself.

What is solace?

Solace – noun – comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness.

To be clear, I am not sad. I have just been running really hard for a while. I have been tired. I have been stressed. I have needed comfort. I have it.

Where do you go for solace? I know several people who go out to nature. It calms them. I know several who go to church. I do as well. God is my ultimate solace.

How about you?
