Earth Mother

Our Mother, whose body is the Earth,
Sacred is thy being. Thy gardens grow.
Thy will be done in our cities,
as it is in nature.
Thanks be this day
for food, and air, and water.
Forgive us our sins against Earth,
as we are learning to forgive one another.
And surrender us not unto extinction,
but deliver us from our folly.
For thine is the beauty, and the power,
and all life, from birth to death,
from beginning to end. Amen.
So be it.
Blessed be.

–Henry Horton in Life Prayers

  1. That is one of my favorite statues and is on my ‘wish list’… And LOVE the Earth Mother prayer — exquisite. Thanks! Blessings!

    • My husband completely surprised me with her for Mother’s Day a couple of years ago. I absolutely LOVE her. Amazing detail and coolness. He also got me the pendant two years ago, but it isn’t as impressive.
