PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May God bless you in the midst of tension and stress, when nerves are taut and the pressure to succeed is high. May you stop and experience the key of God’s peace ever so gently unwinding and releasing the tightness and pressures of the day. May you rest in the knowledge that God receives you just as you are and invites you to do the same. God loves you beyond telling.  May this realization bring you into a place of tranquility and self-care. May the God of all Peace bless you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
