~ 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,
the faith & courage to fly to new heights,
and the wisdom to rely on Your spirit to carry me there.

Yes she had her surgery on the 25th and my dad told me that the incision on her back is very long. Doctor told him that was a more complex surgery than was expected but was a complete success. She is now in a rehabilitation hospital and if goes along schedule she will be there 2 weeks. After that she will have more rehab but will be outpatient then. Last time talked to her on Friday she was in pain and she told me the pain meds she on only makes the pain ease some. Myself and my family is very thankful to you and all the other people on Spark People that are praying for her. She still has a long recovery in front of her and knowing people care about her makes me smile. Thank you so very much for the comments you leave on my page. Bye the way love the background you have on your page even showed it to my fiancé should see how many eagles and household decor we have with eagles on them. He loves eagles and I think they're cool also.
