Apache Blessing
 
"Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will the shelter for the other
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be the warmth to the other
Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling, to enter into the days of your life together,
and may your days be good and long upon the earth."

(This is often added:)

Treat yourselves and each other with respect,
and remind yourselves often of what brought you together.
Give the highest priority to the tenderness,
gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.
When frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship -
as they threaten all relationships at one time or another -
remember to focus on what is right between you,
not only the part which seems wrong.
In this way, you can ride out the storms when clouds hide
the face of the sun in your lives -
remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment,
the sun is still there.
And if each of you takes responsibility for the
quality of your life together,
it will be marked by abundance and delight.
