Have a Wonderful Weekend

There is a road in the hearts of all of us, hidden and seldom traveled,
which leads to an unkown, secret place.
The old people came literally to love the soil,
and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of
being close to a mothering power.
Their teepees were built upon the earth
and their altars were made of earth.
The soul was soothing, strengthening, cleansing and healing.
That is why the old Indian still sits upon the earth instead of
propping himself up and away from its life giving forces.
For him, to sit or lie upon the ground is to be able to think more deeply
and to feel more keenly. He can see more clearly into the mysteries of
life and come closer in kinship to other lives about him.

Chief Luther Standing Bear

The Earth is our mother and provider. Our ancestors knew this only took what they needed to survive. And, when they did take something from the Earth, they gave thanks for it and gave something in return. 

Wishing you all a weekend filled with love, joy, and peace. 


  1. Beautiful message Mary! Enjoy your weekend too!

  2. beautiful...have a good weekend

  3. Wishing you the same my friend! Sure hope that you get to use your back yard this evening. The full moon is just gorgeous. Was worried earlier that with the storms, it would be a cloudy evening. Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone left the earth better than the way they found it? Even if they just picked up the trash, what a great improvement. Love you!


  4. The same wish, back to you, Dear Friend.


  5. I'll TRY...if hubby and my kids will let me.;0
