Psalm 23 ~ Explained

I got this in an email some time ago.  Today the Great Spirit brought me to this Psalm, so I am posting it.  I was working on a loom piece and thought that I may run out of thread before the pattern was finished, but I looked up and said, "I have Faith that I will be able to finish"  and I did.  I am Not Preaching, I only Praise His name every chance I get. 

This will most likely be that Last public blog that I post.  Anyone who wants to follow Six Directions Traders & Our Travels, will have to sign up for multiply and I will have to accept you.  This means it will not post to Facebook either.  It's just been a day to day fight for survival and time only allows a certain amount of Freedom.


Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd ~ That's Relationship!

I shall not want ~ That's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ~ That's Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters ~ That's Refreshment!


He restored my soul ~ That's Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness ~ That's Guidance!

For His name sake ~ That's Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of t he shadow of death ~ That's Testing!

I will fear no evil ~ That's Protection!

For Thou art with me ~ That's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me ~ That's Discipline!


Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ~ That's Hope!

Thou anoint my head with oil ~ That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over  ~ That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ~ That's Blessing !

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord ~ That's Security!

Forever ~ That's Eternity!

Red Eagle Lodge Pow wow 2010

What a Great Pow wow, set in a Beautiful park in Floral City, Florida!  We had such an awesome time, met new friends, renewed old friendships.  Such Positive Energy these people project with their group.  Everyone is very friendly, as if you are part of the family. 

Ken worked all weekend, and I worked hard in the shop as well.  I got a lot created and had a Busy shop most of the weekend.  I even had a woman make a special order and I created Hair Feathers Just for her!  She then went around the pow wow bragging about where she got her hair feathers


There is an interesting video of Little Wolf burying her Buffalo Hoof, sorry but that is all the video I got.  And the pictures from the one dance is all I got for pics.  If you Know JP, he has hundreds of pictures he took and they are posted on Facebook.  As I say it was a work weekend and So very Worth it!! 

Lots Of Positive Energy coming from the circle and dancers this weekend, the public was Awesome as always too!  At one point I was working on finishing a Loom piece sunday afternoon at Grand Entry.  I wasn't really paying attention to what was going on in the circle, but suddenly the Tears were pouring down my face.  We were so refreshed and re-energized by the people that came here, it has been some time since we had a pow wow quite like this.  If anyone gets a chance next year, you might not want to miss this one!

There were Florida Song Storytellers Lee and Betsy Paulet there, I love the Seminole story he tells about Okeechobee!! and more important, I got a copy of the Peace Pledge that Betsy and Little Squirrel did at the end.  I really think we need ALL our Children to live by this Pledge, Please Share it:

Peace Pledge

  • To be a peaceful person by not fighting or encouraging others to fight, I pledge.

  • To honor every person's right to be safe, I pledge.

  • To avoid giving mean looks or calling names or hurting feelings with mean tricks, mocking or laughing at others, I pledge.

  • To not spread rumors, threaten or harass others by word or action, I pledge.

  • To include all who want to join me or my group in a peaceful way, I pledge.

  • To respect the property of others, I pledge.

  • To speak up to those who act mean toward others, I pledge.

  • To do the right thing, get adult help, should such mean behavior continue, I pledge.

By my actions I will show tolerance for others who might appear different from me and by my actions I choose to make my world a kinder and happier place for all, this I pledge.
