Plans: colonoscopy, celebrate Walburg
A.M. Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Walburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Walburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women admire you for your own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL WALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!
Born of Fire, born of ice,
Life is lived at such a price.
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Good advice for today!
I think the colonoscopy went well. I lost 5 lbs with that “quick-shitter-drink-stuff” I had yesterday and an empty intestine this morning: 263, down from 268. They found one polyp and are having it tested. They will notify me by mail in about two weeks with the results. Since Audie doesn’t drive my kindred sister Kami was my driver: as insisted by the VA. I was home before noon. Thank you, Kami, for the ride to and from the VA!
Power napped for almost two hours.
Off to grocery for tonight’s dessert stuff…
Picked up a case of Helgi’s homemade Mead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Audie off with a friend of hers
Celebrating Walpurgisnacht on Freyja’s day…PERFEKT!
WOW! Rheinwood Hearth Kindred had an EXCELLENT celebration of Walpurgisnacht. We had it at one of probationers’ house in a small town just west of Wichita. ! We all looked so lovely dressed in black. Honestly, it couldn’t have been better. They REALLY laid out some good and plenteous BBQ while everyone else brought their assigned dishes. We honestly didn’t have much of a meeting but for me making a necessary point to the probationers collectively. It was necessary only because I’m sure they didn’t know any better so they needed to be educated a bit. They accepted my/our admonitions well enough. So as not to belabor that too much I hurried onto samal/sumbel. Samal went really well; so much so that we had one of our probationers go into a happy dance after her drink of mead. Get some good mead down any tru Heathen hilarity is soon to follow! A good time was had by all! I almost turned into a pumpkin it was so late; well, late for me anyway.
Audie came home in a mood. I wonder what happened.
The colonoscopy is such a blur now. It seems so long ago (even though it happened just this morning) compared to the joy of celebrating Walburg with the tru Heathens of Rheinwood Hearth Kindred! I wait with great excitement to take the oath from our probationers come Yule! They are an excellent bunch! I think that is what made this Walpurgisnacht so satisfying. We have one probationer who is already a well-established Heathen (but he still has to go through the motions like everyone else), we have one who is fairly new but it’s his first time actually practicing and two totally new ones. It is wonderful to see everyone start to meld into one cohesive group; joining ranks with the already blood-oath-sworn members of Rheinwood!
P.M. Prayer: Era/Eir:
Era/Eir, whose loving hands and sweet breath brings healing and health, PRAISE YOUR NAME AMONGST NORTH-FOLK! We thank you for your gentle caress, your soft ministrations and your care. When stress, strains, aches and pains plague is, you come with your lithe figure and flowing hair to ease our distress. Eir, goddess holy and wise, we honor you. HAIL ERA/EIR!!
