2nd day of Yule – Mother’s Night
Mother's Night welcomes in the Season of Yule. As we encourage the return of Sunna (the feminine aspect of the Sun) we honor the feminine all around us. ...Honor the Idises, Asynjor, all Mothers, Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers and your feminine ancestors. Raise a horn to the glorious women who give birth to us and to the feminine spirits that support us. Give this time in honor to all Mothering aspects.
AM Prayer: Wednesday/Wodanstag, we pray to Wodan/Odin, lighting a blue
Rune god! Wolf God! Raven god! WODAN/ODIN!! We call out to you, not as slaves 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! After a life battle-worn, Wodan/Odin, grant us access to one of the Great Halls where we may feast, drink and be merry with our heroes and our ancestors until the time comes to live or fight once more. We honor the Wodan/Odin that resides in us. WODAN/ODIN, 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: WOW! Lots of online activity. I KNOW I’m doing the right thing when online people come to me for advice. It may take a bit longer, I may not get paid for anything, but the rewards are there:
Cattle die, kindred die,
Every man is mortal:
But the good name never dies
Of one who has done well.
I’m COUNTING on that!
Once again, not much going on
Took Meeka for a walk
I returned the call from a hiring agency in South Texas. They are hiring for a company called Agusta Helicopter http://www.bellagusta.com/ in Philly. I like Pennsylvania, the
pay is good, but it’s a temp-to-hire, couple that having to be on the job Jan 3rd. Logistically it isn’t feasible. I would have a hard time justifying a move for a temp-to-hire; not to mention I would have to be there by Jan 3...dunno.
I think I’ve pretty much talked myself out of perusing this.
Well, at least I know the job hunt is moving right along.
Audie off to her friend’s house
I LOVE watching Coast Guard Alaska: http://www.weather.com/tv/tvshows/coast-guard-alaska
I give a HAIL to my Mother, Anna Marie Schmidt. I also give a HAIL to Audrey’s Mother, Betty McCafferty. Your memories live on!
The Winter Solstice happened @ 13:30PM. It truly is a Holy Night…peaceful…serene…
LOL, Raido, Wheel, Yule; Wheel: perfekt!
PM Prayer: The Norns:
The Norns, all three, are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth.
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned;
Glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now.
That which “was” we clearly see.
That which “is” formed now in our deeds.
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see.
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity.
PM Rune: none
Comments: cared for animals, Meeka inside
Alaf Sal Fena!
