Hi and good morning! Just wandering through earlier posts, and loved this. Especially make me strong enough to do battle w/my worst enemy - Myself!! Each day, thank God, is a new beginning, and this morning I awoke, still to a cold house (called the LL, and he'll be by when he's d...good and ready), but nevertheless refreshed. I am quite the early bird. One of my favorite speakers, has always been Bob Earl. I always liked his idea of a spiritual awakening: to awaken like a two-year old, ready to hop out of bed and look for the first thing to get into! No worries, no thoughts! Just the host of things we can get into each day. The choices are endless! I can even do nothing! (which I did for the last two days). By the way, I have a job that allows me to be in town once in awhile, so when I'm in, I can do WHATEVER I WANT! Today, I will bake cheesecake (well - that's the PLAN!), and maybe a macaroni for a potluck I'm going to! So, have a good one folks!

Oh Great Spirit
Whose Voice I Hear in the wind.
Whose breath gives life to the world.
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 behold the red and purple sunset;
Make my hands respect the things that you
And my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may know the things
That you have taught your children;
The lessons that you have hidden in
every leaf and rock.
Make me strong . . . not to be superior to my
brothers but to be able to fight my greatest enemy. . .myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you with
straight eyes so that
When life fades as the faded sunset,
My spirit will come to you without shame.
I thought that this prayer was pretty neat. Just wanted to share it with everyone.
