N Native American Sayings

Now you will feel no rain for each of you will be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no cold for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no more loneliness for each of you will be companion to the other. Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.

May beauty surround you both in your journey ahead and through the years. May happiness be your companions to the place where the river meets the sun. And may your days be good and long upon the Earth.


May the sun bring you new energy by day. May the moon softly restore you by night. May the rain wash away your worries. May the breeze blow new strength into your beings. And all the days of your lives may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty.


Treat yourself and each other with respect. And remind yourselves often of what brought you together. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves. When frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship, as they threaten all relationships at one time or another, remember to focus on what is right between you, not only on the part that seems wrong. In this way you can ride out the storms when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives, remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there. And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked with abundance and delight.


When evening falls there you will both be. You’ll take each other’s hands and turn together to look at the road you have travelled to reach this, the hour of your happiness. It stretches behind you even as the future lies ahead. A long and winding road whose every turn means discovery.

Old hopes – new laughter – shared tears.

The adventure has just begun.

T Native American Sayings

Tell them how we loved all that was beautiful.

The more you give, the more good things come to you.

The ones that matter most are the children. They are true human beings.

The Soul would have no rainbow, if the eye had no tears.

Treat the Earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
It was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors
We borrow it from our children.

W Native American Sayings

Walk tall as the trees.

We are each a thread in the web of life, strengthened by the promise of our dreams.

We sang songs that carried in their melodies all the sounds of nature.
