Solitude is not a sad state of mind
but a glorious gift from God.
Not lonely or detached
but connected and joyful.
A time to reflect, a visit with self
A time to listen, a time with God
advice from a warm, loving Friend.
A time to give Thanks for glorious gifts.
Yourself, you Spirit, unique in the world
will celebrate with joy each day.
Solitude is surely not lonely or sad
but a wonderful state of mind.
