'THINK on THESE THINGS'
by Joyce Sequichie Hifler
I don't know of anyone I'd rather see happy than you. Perhaps somewhere
along the way you'll also find what causes it and maybe it will be
something you can find within your heart to share with others....for
only in sharing are we ever really happy.
Just remember that it may well be where you least expect it. You may
recognize it as something you're about to give away.....But don't worry,
it will come back so many times; like love, it seeketh not its own but
flies over us like angels. And when it finds a heart big enough to hold
all the love it can supply it settles itself, wings and all, within the
soul of that love.
And then the world will be new. There will be sights you've never seen,
yet they have been there all the time....there will be laughter from the
heart.....and gratitude for all of life's privileges. There will be
peace and contentment....and strength abounding to withstand all
adversity.....and quiet acknowledgement of God. For without God, there
could be none of these.

The Cherokee people stand upon new ground. Let us hope the clouds which
overspread the land will be dispersed, and that we shall prosper as we
have never done before.
CHIEF JOHN ROSS - OCTOBER 9, 1861
January 1 - Daily Feast
If, like a Cherokee warrior, I can look at the new year as an
opportunity to stand on new ground, then strength and courage are on my
side. If I have waited a long time for everything to be perfect - and
there have been moments, brief as they were, that filled my expectations
- then I can face the challenges. I will remember that things do work
out, bodies do heal, relationships mend - not because I said it, but
because I believe it. But it is time to make things right, to stay on
the path. As water runs fresh and free from the woodland spring, so new
life and meaning will bubble up from my own inner source. I will be
still and steady, because there is nothing to be gained by showing fear
in a chaotic world. I can turn from ignorance and prejudice toward a
light that never goes out.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - January 1
"?because if you believe in something, and believe in it long enough, it
will come into being."
--Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE
We are created by the Great One to accomplish His will through our
mental pictures or visions. Our thoughts are three dimensional: words,
pictures and feelings. We create the vision by thinking the words and we
create feeling for the vision by feeling enthusiasm, desire, commitment
and other strong beliefs. Once we create the vision, we move toward and
become like that which we think about. All visions are tested by our
self talk; for example, "This isn't going to happen, where is the money
coming from anyway?" When this happens, we need to let go of the test
and focus on belief in the vision. Why? Because God said if we believe
it long enough, He will guarantee it!!!
Great One, let
my beliefs be
