nurse

Sister Patricia Raelene is blessing the hands of nurses for National Nurses Week. American Nurses Association (ANA) has designated 2017 as the “Year of the Healthy Nurse.” Join us during National Nurses Week, May 6–12, as we explore this year’s theme, “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” It’s all about celebrating nurses like you who lead the charge for health and wellness.

A BLESSING FOR NURSES

May rest find you,
In the peaceful moments when all is still,
In the quiet times when you pause
And breathe.

May rest find you
In the chaos of the moment
In the sorrow you seek to heal.

May rest strengthen and bless you.
May it fill your spirit
And give you unearned joy.

May you find rest in the care of others,
In the knowledge of your worth,
In the value of your service.

May the One who gives rest
Bless you and hold you close.
And may you, in your very being,
Be a place of rest for others.

Amen.
