Paiute Indian Blessing

Now you will feel no rain

for each of you will be

shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold,

for each of you will be

warmth to the other.

Now there is no more loneliness,

now you are two persons,

but only one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place,

to enter into the days of your life together.

And may your days be good ,

and long upon the earth.


About Adrienne

I am Canadian born, for those of you needing clarification. I was raised in Minnesota, The Land of 10,000 Lakes, Multiple Musical Geniuses, Lake Wobegon, and really, really cold winters. Writing, Music and Photography are my passions. My current companion is my camera though my guitars and the piano are always close by and often consulted. Inspiration is everywhere and so is beauty. I now reside in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. I love to write, ponder and give back what I have learned in my journey with the hope that it will benefit others.

    My husband and I will be married ten years this Nov. 2011. We were married in Reno and this beautiful blessing was in our wedding. This tugs at my heart strings. I feel as bound by this prayer to my husband, as our vows made to each other before God and the legal aspects of becoming married.

    It’s a precious and cherished prayer.

    • Ah! ;D I believe that would have been the “Little White Chapel” ? I got married there too…I love that prayer… Glad that it is a powerful prayer for you as well! Peace Love and Light! ~Adrienne

    It was called “The Heart of Reno Wedding Chapel”….. I bet a lot of the chapels there add that prayer. Thank you for sharing your memory of your day.

    ❤Bright Blessings! ~ ♥

    Our’s was at “The Heart of Reno” Wedding Chapel. I bet they use that prayer at weddings all over that city, maybe Vegas too.
