~ Cherokee Prayer Blessing ~

May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

~ Chief Dan George ~

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence make you strong.

~ Cherokee Prayer ~

O' GREAT SPIRIT
help me always to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind when others speak,
and to remember the peace that may be found in silence.

~ Native American Prayer ~

Oh, Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me, I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have
hidden in every leaf and rock.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my Spirit may come to you without shame.

(translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887)

God, grant me the serenity of eagles wings,

and the wisdom to rely on Your spirit to carry me there.

Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave and enjoy each moment
as it comes. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, retrace your steps
and go back to the purest place in your heart - where hope lives... and you'll find
your way again. - ❤ॐ❤ Everwood

If one day you feel like crying,
call me..
I don't promise
I'll make you laugh
But I can cry with you.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
If one day you want to run away,
Don't be afraid to
call me
I don't promise to ask you to stop.
But I can run with you.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
If one day you don't want to listen to anyone.
call me...
I promise to be there for you,
and I promise to be very quiet.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
But if one day you try to
call me.....
And there is no answer,
Come fast to see me.
Perhaps I may need you.

The food you eat can be either the safest, powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.
