Perdido Bay Tribe Members’ Daily Prayer

Master of Breath and Life hear my prayer today.

I ask you to forgive all our mistakes.

I ask you let me always see with love

The beautiful life you have created all around us to enjoy.

Let my hands respect all your creations

And let me walk in beauty and love always and in all ways.

Open my heart to always see love in everyone, even though they may hate me

I come to you in a humble way and ask you

To heal all who are sick, injured, crippled, and lonesome.

I ask you to help me to be a better person.

Thank you, Thank you

~~~

Walk in Beauty and Love always,

Ghost Dancer

I am an 80-something elder, a child of the great depression and WWII. I have lived a good life doing all the ordinary things valued by women of my generation. Through it all, I have also been a seeker, an outsider by nature, never quite "at home" in any group, but always looking through cracks in the fences of life, questioning, challenging, learning, trying to make sense of the world and its conventions. A registered nurse by profession, I am a lifelong student with a love of writing and interests in history and genealogy. In my golden years, just when I was starting to wonder what I was going to do with the rest of my life, some unexpected things happened that led me down new and unfamiliar paths. I’ve since learned it took a lifetime of experiences to prepare me for the new challenges and opportunities to come. The lessons these new challenges bring comprise the magic elixir that keep me seeking, keep me aware, keep me vital.
