9780060197056: Get Well Wishes: Prayers, Poems and Blessings

During times of recovery, pain, and fear, we can all use some reassurance and comfort.

The nurturing words gathered here offer anyone who is ill, and their families and friends, the courage to move toward recovery and healing -- to summon faith and grace in the midst of pain. Wise and compassionate, this uplifting volume encourages anyone touched by illness to find solace in simplicity, take comfort in ritual, and welcome the healing touch of a loved ones warm embrace. A thoughtful and lasting bouquet of good wishes, culled from a wide variety of sources and traditions, provides the inspiration and confidence to be still, live in wonder, celebrate triumphs, reclaim dreams, give thanks, and get well.

A rich spectrum of old and new voices -- including writers such as Saint Augustine, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Rainer Maria Rilke, C.S. Lewis, Natalie Goldberg, Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro, and Margaret Anne Huffman -- illuminates life's most difficult, vulnerable moments, lighting the way to clarity and perspective, to grace, and even tojoy.

A Life Jacket

Life has a way of surprising us.
It does not behave the way we
planned or anticipated.
That is when we grab onto faith
and hang onto it
like a life jacket
until better days.
