Happiness is...When your favorite songcomes onto the radio

This week’s prayer comes from the Arapaho Indians, from the Great Plains of Wyoming and Colorado. They pray to “our father” or “the man above”. It is believed that the “the man above” is present in all of nature, all plants, animals and some minerals. They talk to and consult these beings for knowledge and wisdom. Below is an Arapaho Prayer from the Arapaho project:

About Tamara Hoerner (1302 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
