NOTE: In yesterday’s blog I mentioned the Vikings game against the Bears: it seems the Viks ended up making a good go of it but lost it in overtime.
10th Day of Yule – Remembering the Noble Virtue of Self-Reliance
Do not create codependent relationships in any way. Do not let your happiness, or your success, be determined by anyone else. Be responsible for yourself. Rely on your own efforts to secure your needs.
A.M. Prayer: Tuesday, we pray to Ziu/Tyr and lighting a purple candle (for honor):
Ziu/Tyr, you chained the Fenris Wolf that threatened the worlds. We can’t do that, but we can do other things, some ordinary, others heroic. Remind us of your bravery and your sacrifice. Give us the courage and strength we need to fetter out own Fenris. Keep us mindful of our duties, and help us keep our fears bound as tightly as you bound old Slaver Mouth. Thus doing, we may we share in your glory by imitating you. ZIU/TYR 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
A.M. Rune: Dagaz (irreversible): The light of day, total enlightenment, an awakening, the AH-HA moment, achieving balance and harmony, an ending prior a beginning, transformation.
Outcome: It took a bit of experimenting but I was nonetheless successful in making Belgian Waffles from the wonderful gadget given to us by Audie’s dad over Yule: YUMMERS!
Sad day: a most promising probationer has chosen to walk away Rheinwood Hearth Kindred, citing her life is too busy to continue. Like I said in a note to her, as sad as this may be it’s what a probationary period is all about. It gives one a chance to make that kind of determination. Since she has chosen to walk away BEFORE she oathed there is no harm and no foul. I wished her well on her spiritual journey. She may have chosen to close her chapter with Rheinwood, but we walk forward to our newly transformed beginning.
Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowww….you should have seen the dinner Audie cooked up: pan-fried pork chops, fried potatoes and cauliflower: YUMMERS!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…a little bit more light snow…
P.M. Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Uuodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Ing Fro/Freyr and Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a millennium, but for ever and ever!
P.M. Rune: none
