Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.
~ Ancient Indian Proverb ~
God our Mother,
River of Mercy,
Source of Life,
in whom we live
and have our being,
who quenches out thirst,
refreshes our weariness,
be for us always
a fountain of life,
and for all the world
a river of hope
springing up in the midst
of the deserts of despair.
Honor and blessing
glory and praise
to You forever.

Sacred life bringer
i honor YOU
thank YOU for flowing
Thank YOU for quenching my thirst
and purifying my body
and teaching me to go with the flow!
Thank you for sustaining life ((O))
thank YOU for gifting my children
with a source of adventure
a place to nurture their spirit
and refresh their busy minds
Thank YOU for offering me reflections
Holding a mirror of my own emotional flow
Thank YOU for offering me a place to heal my wounds
washing away that which is no longer needed
Thank YOU for offering us a place of solace
Amidst a noisy World
for reflecting a state of grace & peace
in a world filled with so much pain
Thank YOU great waters
for reflecting the light that shines all around us
Thank YOU for nourishing our wilderness!
