Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May the God of Trust be with you, teaching you to let go into the arms of God all the uncertainties and unknowns of your life. May you bathe securely in the knowledge of God’s abiding presence in the NOW. May your focus on the present enable you to be a compassionate presence to each one you meet today and call you to a deep trust of yourself, of others, and of God. May the blessing of Trust be upon you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
