Good Words To Live By

May the sun bring you new energy by day

May the moon softly restore you by night

May the rain wash away your worries

May the breeze blow new strength into your being

May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty

All the days of your life.

Apache Blessing

This blessing is so meaningful. How many of us truly walk gently through the world? Most of us speed through each day, rushing to complete all the things on our "to do" lists. We barely have time to kiss our loved ones goodbye in the morning. Hurry, hurry, hurry is the mantra of so many days of our lives.

Do we really know the beauty of the world? Do we take time to look up into the sky and see the incredible loveliness of cloud formations? Or see the outline of tree branches in the winter? Do we look at the intracacies of a rose? Smell its exquisite fragrance?

When it rains, do we think of it as washing away our worries?

The Apache blessing has been taped to our refrigerator for some time now. It is a needed reminder to walk gently, let the sun energize, and know the beauty of the world each day.

Do you identify with the blessing?

I would love to live by that blessing...maybe in my retirement after I don't work two jobs.12 hours a day. I love the picture!

Hello Di....That blessing can be lived NOW, even while working 12 hours a day. It just takes awareness of how precious each MOMENT of life is! The sun comes up and the moon comes out, even if one is working or not! The breezes come and the rains come, too. The photo I took from our moving car at sundown. Cool, huh? Thanks for your visit and comment. Sincerely, Susan
