We each are given the gift of free will and choices. It is our responsibility to choose wisely, how we share this gift toward the world and to realize that ultimately every action and choice we make touch something outside of ourselves. In the end it all comes back to us. I choose the path of love, compassion and understanding which is the path of the "warrior" and brings me closer to the Creator. It creates in my world a place of inner peace.

A strong woman knows she has strength for the journey, but a woman of strength, knows it is in the journey where she will be strong.

~ Quero Apache Prayer ~

Looking behind, I am filled with gratitude.
Looking forward, I am filled with vision.
Looking upwards, I am filled with strength.
Looking within, I discover peace.

~ 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,

and the wisdom to rely on Your spirit to carry me there.

    I came across this yesterday and just felt I had to share it with all of you

    ********************TRAIN OF LIFE***********************

    ---Some folks ride the train of life, Looking out the rear.
    Watching miles of life roll by, And marking every year.
    They sit in sad remembrance, Of wasted days gone by.
    ---And curse their life for what it was, And hang their head and cry.

    ---But I don't concern myself with that, I took a different vent.
    I look forward to what life holds, And not what has been spent.
    So strap me to the engine, As securely as can be.
    ---I want to be out in front, To see what I can see.

    ---I want to feel the winds of change, Blowing in my face.
    I want to see what life unfolds, As I move from place to place.
    I want to see whats coming up. No looking at the past.
    ---Life's too short for yesterday, It moves along too fast.

    ---So if the ride gets bumpy, While you are looking back.
    Go up front, and you may find, Your life has jumped the track.
    Its all right to remember, That's part of history.
    ---But up front's where its happening. There's so much mystery.

    ---The enjoyment of living, Is not where we have been,
    It's looking ever forward, To another year and ten.
    It's searching all the byways, Never should you refrain.
    ---For if you want to live your life, You gotta drive the train.
    --------------------AUTHOR UNKNOWN----------------

    ---As I read this, I realized, I cannot live in the past,
    --------and I cannot foresee the future, --------
    ---------But I can live for every second---------
    ------------and every minute of today.-----------
    """"Enjoy today, and everyday of your life.""""
