Lift every voice and sing,
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list’ning skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chast’ning rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered.
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.
God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who hast by Thy might,
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God,
True to our native land.

This month, our beautiful shop will celebrate her first birthday and we really want to make this month special.
Building Botanikal has been one of the most beautiful journeys for us. We have met so many wonderful people, connected with soul family. We have hugged, cried, laughed, and celebrated milestones of birth, engagements, weddings, and deaths. We love Botanikal and we love serving our community and providing guidance however we can. We love picking out crystals and spirtual tools that will go home with the right person. We love to see the smiles and we love to see how love and kindness create magical synchronicities…
Financially, it has been a very slow year. We never had a grand opening because it’s been a month to month journey…
what a wild delicious day to day ride 😉
But we need your help…
Will you please make a small contribution in support of Botanikal so that we can continue to anchor our roots and continue to serve our beautiful community?
