Never truly ending
it is once more a time of change
When one season gives way unto another 
and the greens of Summer
turn to the many colors of Fall
When the growth from the one dying
turns to the bounty and harvest of the next
and what was
gives way to gifts of what will be
honor well yet another beginning
and the future it so brings 
                                ~L.L. Abbott, 2003

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.  ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

 Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.  ~Marion C. Garretty, quoted in A Little Spoonful of Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul
 
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  ~Marcel Proust

 Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.  ~William Makepeace Thackeray

If nature had arranged that husbands and wives should have children alternatively, there would never be more than three in a family.  ~Lawrence Housman

It is time for the woman. It is time to talk and set things right, for women to stand up. And when the world honors women, the mothers, and Mother Earth, everyone will be better off. ~Cecilia Mitchell, Mohawk

 

The battle for Indian children will be won in the classroom, not on the

streets or on horses. The students of today are our warriors of tomorrow. ~Wilma P. Mankiller, Cherokee

Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal.
This is when we re-establish our connection with the earth.
The time when future harvests are planted.
It is a time of vigilance, responsibility, and patience.
It is also a season of hope. 
As Spring moves on, may all that you plant flourish.
~L.L. Abbott

At this time I would like to remind the People of significant days of prayer in Honor of Sacred Sites; June 20th – National Native American Sacred Sites Day and June 21st – International Day to Honor Sacred Sites world wide, also known as World Peace and Prayer Day.
 
Time has come when all of our Nation’s Prophecies upon Grandmother Earth are weaving together with strength in messages to take notice of our responsibility. In this momentous time in history, we once again humbly request on behalf of Grandmother Earth, to gather “all nations, all faiths, one prayer” to create an energy shift of healing for all the spiritual beings of the two legged, those that swim, those that crawl, the winged ones, the plant nations and four legged.
 
As we are taking this time to journey to our Sacred Sites, whether it be; churches, mosques, temples, pyramids, significant natural places of prayer, where the spirits live from our ancestors beliefs in the creator, may you have a safe journeys.
 
Our significant sacred animals belonging to the different Nations upon this Grandmother Earth have now all shown their sacred color - which is white, the only way for the two-legged to listen and take notice. They are warning us of these times prophesied when many things are now out of balance that will affect us forever if we do not take this time to change our paths that we are on.  These signs of changes prophesied are now evident in the global climate changes, the daily extinction of the plant and animal Nations and our human relationships with one another causing pain and to destroy one another, whether it be major war or within relatives.  We must unite this global community to pray for a healing for Grandmother Earth, for all her living beings, for our future generation’s well being.
 
In a Sacred Hoop of Life, where there is no ending and no beginning!

Hear my words!

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.  ~Eleonora Duse

The ultimate test of man's conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard. ~Gaylord Nelson

A society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy. ~John Sawhill

For mankind as a whole, a possession infinitely more valuable than individual life is our genetic heritage, our link with past and future... Yet genetic deterioration through man-made agents is the menace of our time... ~Rachel Carson

I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. ~Abraham Lincoln

Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a songbird will come. ~Chinese Proverb

Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.  A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world.  ~Ada Louise Huxtable

The poetry of the earth is never dead.  ~John Keats

Summer Blessing

May your Summer bring growth to the seeds planted in Spring;

be they of thought, action, deeds, or of sustenance.

May your prayers give Voice to the sacredness of the Earth

And may you all know Peace and Grace and Compassion.

I wish for all
a wonderful holiday season
filled with peace, joy, and
the bountiful love of family and dear friends.
May you all know safe roads for your journeys
and may those far from home
find warm hearths upon their returns.
May the spirit of the season live on in all hearts.
And may the new year ahead
hold many blessings in store.
