Oh, Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the winds, And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me, I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people. Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock. I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - myself. Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes. So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame.~ Native American Prayer

I love these photos Miranda, they are so charming and would like so much to be comfortable with a cup of coffee.
Incredible captures, Miranda! Such glorious colors! And I love the Native American prayer! Perfect! Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
Beautiful glow about these photos and a wise poem.
Oh Miranda sweetie...
These photos are absolutely breath taking. I love every single piece of this puzzle. From the pinks to the reds, to the blues to the outlined darkened tree scapes. So beautiful, so absolutely beautiful. You can see the musical notes dance in the clouds in the sky. God had a beautiful time with his paintbrush in this skylight did he not?
Thank you for sharing this evening. I am truly in awe. Sometimes I find myself watching the skies so deeply I forget to click the camera and miss out on the moment. But I breathe it in my mind.
Have a beautiful Friday sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry
