Turn loneliness into delight

God, who is Love itself, already fills all space—and each and every yearning heart. His presence naturally negates a dread of being alone or feeling empty. Realizing this truth can bring a feeling of stunning delight, an inner glow, to our solitude.

I remember a day when that delight came to me in an unusual way. A wave of loneliness had come out of the blue with suddenness and force. But on this particular occasion, I saw it as something outside myself—actually like a bubble bouncing closer and closer, as if an invitation to indulge in selfish longing. The fact that a bubble is transparent, and takes on whatever hues surround it, made the image even more compelling.
