We return thanks to our mother, the earth,
which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in Whom is embodied all goodness,
and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.


I am in for a very busy day today.  Just dropping by to say 'hello' and wish everyone a great day.  May joy and happiness be your companion.


  1. Lovely!

    Hope your very busy day, goes smoothly. And that you emerge from it, satisfied but not totally worn out. I think that about covers it/my wishes. :-)


  2. Spring is " an awakening " for us as well as Mother Earth. ;0)

  3. This prayer very much resonates with me Mary as I am Mohawk of the Iroquois Confederacy...

    Hope you are enjoying your day and not having to rush too much through it!

    Love and Blessings My Friend!
