Comforted By Angels and The Sistine Chapel

For the past two weeks, I have felt worse than usual. I have been extremely tired, in pain, unmotivated, and have had trouble concentrating. These are all symptoms that accompany Multiple Sclerosis and I am used to struggling with them all however they have been magnified by 100 lately. For example, I recently slept for 24 hours straight. Twenty four hours straight!! Who does that? Me!!

As I write this, I am having difficulty concentrating and I am struggling to form complete sentences. This gets me frustrated because words have always flowed easily for me. In addition, the pain I am experiencing is getting old. Heck, it’s making me feel old! I know that the extreme feelings I’m having will pass…..eventually. I just have to ride them out.

When I don’t feel well, there are certain things that I do to either distract myself or try and relax myself.

  • I listen to soothing music.
  • I light candles and pray/meditate.
  • I browse through magazines and only look at the pictures.
  • I peruse Pinterest.
  • Sleep.
  • Ignore the news {because most of it is bad news anyway}.
  • Take a long shower/bath.
  • Eat chocolate. Lots of chocolate.

In my bedroom, I have a collection of angels. I have angel pictures on the wall, an angel nightlight, angel figurines—->you get the idea. There is something about angels that relaxes me which is why I keep my collection in my bedroom. When I’m not feeling well, the bedroom is where I spend most of my time.

While I was online today, I discovered some new angel items to add to my Angel board that I have on Pinterest. I think they’re all absolutely beautiful and they give me a bit of comfort. In addition, I love to explore the Sistine Chapel—online. It is a stunning piece of work that always takes my mind off of my own discomfort. I’ve included the link below.

What brings you comfort when you’re not feeling well? Anything you’d like to share?

It is not known precisely where angels dwell – whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God’s pleasure that we should be informed of their abode. ~Voltaire

While we are sleeping, angels have conversations with our souls. ~Author Unknown

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; ~Psalm 91:11 NIV

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. ~Michelangelo

Explore the Sistine Chapel {This is worth a visit. It’s stunning and you can use your mouse to move around the chapel}.
