A Sioux Prayer

Translated by Chief Yellow Lark - 1887

Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
Whose breath gives life to the world, hear me
I come to you as one of your many children
I am small and weak
I need your strength and wisdom

May I walk in beauty
Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
And my ears sharp to your voice.
Make me wise so that I may know the things you have taught your children.

The lessons you have written in every leaf and rock
Make me strong--------!
Not to be superior to my brothers, but to fight my greatest enemy....myself

Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes,
So that when life fades as the fading sunset,
May my spirit come to you without shame.

 

In the Autumn of our life we look back and see many of those we loved have travelled on... we ponder and remember the laughter ... the joy they shared... we thank our Creator for blessing us with there friendhsips. How much greater our life has been and is because they touched ours ... and changed each of us. With that thought in mind and knowing in a few weeks I turn 60 I want to take this time to Thank Each Of You For Sharing Your Life with me.

With love and well wishes to each of you for a Blessed Holiday Season.

With much love Kathryn
