Plans: we’ll see…
AM Prayer: Wednesday, we pray to the Divine couple: Wodan/Odin and Frija/Frigga, lighting royal blue (for Wodan/Odin) and light blue (for Frija/Frigga) candles.
Rune god! Wolf God! Raven god! WODAN/ODIN!! We call out to you, not as a slave or on bended knee, but on our feet and opened-armed as befits your offspring. Watch us as we struggle, but the fight and fame must both be ours! Grant us that victory which we win by OUR might and mane! If we live well, Wodan/Odin, grant us access to one of the Great Halls where we may feast, drink and be merry with those who have gone before us until the time comes to live or fight once more. WODAN/ODIN, HAIL!!!
Frija/Frigga, teach us to be patient but not passive; wise but not haughty in our wisdom; far seeing yet not blind to that which is before us. May we nurture life, increase life, and live our own lives more fully. Through you we give honor to our human mothers. Through you we see all the beauty that surrounds us as well. FRIJA/FRIGGA, HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: When Audie feels weak like this I encourage her to get all the sleep she needs. She was awake for a little while but was soon back in bed: that’s okay.
LOTS of Online time. I found a few things Vanic:
At first I was ready to dismiss this Svartesol as Wiccan, but thru just a wee bit of diligence I discovered that she WAS Wicca (like I was) but is now a professed Heathen since 2000. Now I can respect her work on the Vanic nature things without thinking she’s all willy-nilly in her head. I’ve joined the Vanic e-group and have downloaded a free copy of a 32 page work on an Introduction to Vanatru.
Worked on the Rheinwood website: moved some things around, added some content… http://rheinwood.weebly.com
I must admit that I have indeed feeling a bit weakened in my spiritual person, but with this bit of study today that validates my interest in Vanatru, things are much better!
Today is a great hibernation day! It’s 112F/44C in the backyard…not a fit day for man or beast to venture outside. It’s enough to weaken a body! Inaction is a good thing today!
Grocery shopped…I’m getting pretty good at knowing what she wants.
Bathing in the afterglow of discovering new Vanatru friends today!
