Oh our Mother the Earth,
oh our Father the Sky,
Your children are we, and with tired backs
We bring you the gifts that you love.
Then weave for us a garment of brightness.
May the warp be the bright light of morning;
May the fringes be the falling rain;
May the borders be the standing rainbow.
Thus weave for us a garment of brightness,
that we may walk fittingly where birds sing;
That we may walk fittingly where grass is green.
Oh our Mother the Earth, oh our Father the Sky.
(Tewa song – Native American)
All that we see –
the heaven, the earth, and all that fills it –
all these things
are the external garments of G-d.
(Rabbi Shneur Zalman)
“My smile reflects a joy for living and a healthy lifestyle.”
