Gratitude: Season of Creation
I raise the pipe of my being to the rising sun in openness and humility. With my eyes closed, I give thanks to the life giver and ask for strength to be humble through the course of this day. I smudge myself with sacred medicines and give thanks for the blessings that are already present in my life. I ask for nothing. I only offer thanks. Then, in gratitude and humility, I enter the journey of each day. Richard Wagamese
Begin each day with gratitude
End each day with thanks
We give thanks for the earth and sky and sea;
for the richness of mountains, plains, and waters;
for the beauty of gold tinged hues of autumn;
for the bounty of the harvest.
We give thanks for these good gifts.
May we safeguard all creation for the wellbeing of all,
now and into the future.
