Giving Thanks by Spirit Journey Youth
Thank you great Creator for all you have given us. We are glad that we moved beyond alcohol and drugs. We are glad we are not in jail. We are glad that we didn’t die from violence. We are glad for jobs and homes. We are thankful for all that which flies or crawls or swims; for all growing things; and for all those things which makes up the earth and seas. We are thankful for those animals who give up their lives to feed us—the turkey, deer, elk, fish, cow, sheep, goat, pig and chickens. We are thankful for the growing plants that give us grains, fruits and vegetables for both healing and food. We are thankful for the wood and rocks and everything else from Mother Earth. We especially give thanks for the water that falls from the sky and into the ground and rivers. Most of all we give thanks for all our relatives and our friends who walk with us on the way.
