I'm sure some of you have already done the
Blog to Print thing....

so are there any tips I could use?

An Indian Prayer---unknown writer

O' Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me!  I am small and weak, I need your
strength and wisdom,

Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes
ever behold the red and purple sunset.

Make my hands respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.

Make me wise so that I may understand the
things you have taught my people.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my
brother, but to fight my greatest
enemy----myself.

Make me always ready to come to you with
clean hands and straight eyes.

So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you
without shame.

My only tip is to DO it! I didn't, then lost my blog by accident. Now I'm backing up without fail. Good luck!

Thank you Yvonne...I needed this prayer today. You bless me! I did publish awhile back ...and I was very pleased...enough to do it again in the future after my Dawes commission. Peace, Mary helen Fernandez Stewart
