God to speak.
During the last couple of years many of us have experienced feelings of anxiety and stress. It can feel like we can’t catch our breath.
We invite you to close your eyes, relax your body and breathe in and out.
Below you’ll find simple ways to help to relieve stress and be present in the moment.
Music has a wonderful way of quieting our mind. Listen to a variety of music until you find the one that works best for you; classical, hymns, Zen, instrumental, sounds from nature or maybe a combination
Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
Deep peace of the gentle night to you,
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you,
Deep peace of Christ the light of the world to you.
