~ 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,
the faith & courage to fly to new heights,
and the wisdom to rely on Your spirit to carry me there.

We don't have to be perfect, we just have to make an effort. No more excuses, just do what needs to be done, the best way you can. Even if it seems very little, you are doing more than the person who is sitting on the sofa. So spend you thoughts on thinking about moving each day and keep focused on your goal! Go for the priceless prize...a healthier you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

JES' FRIDAY FOCUS

If the WHOLE world was blind..
How many people would YOU truly impress?
- - UNKNOWN - -


Always remember that it's what's on the inside that matters the MOST!! You can be the most attractive or fittest person in the entire room but good looks alone can never make up for an ugly soul or a cold hear!! Eventually we all get old, we all grow wrinkly & we all get gray - - Remember to nourish more than just your body on this journey to better health!! A good heart, a beautiful mind & a caring soul will NEVER go out of style!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes
