NOTE: 3rd Day of Yule
Remembering the Noble Virtue of Courage
Courage is definitely an attitude of boldness, however, not the absence of fear. Courage is the carrying on in spite of your fear. It is courage that allows us to live life in such a manner that we can be proud.
Plans: nothing really
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: Two Runes:
Naudiz (Irreversible): OHG: Nôt (as in “note”): The Rune of Need (whether physical, emotional, spiritual), a stress indicator, friction, transformation, resistance leading to strength, an evolutionary change toward a more holistic state, Fate. Time to hold a personal inventory.
Fehu (U): OHG: Fihu, Wealth, the ability to create and maintain wealth and the accompanying power, cattle as the representation of wealth, creative forces, Audhumla, fire, new beginnings.
Outcome: Naudiz as a stress indicator doesn’t bother me as much as it used too: as compared to the Eihwaz stress indicator. The Naudiz stress indicator has a purpose; that being, resistance leading to strength and evolutionary change. The Eihwaz stress indicator has no way out and no real purpose: it just is. The Naudiz Rune, coupled with the Fehu Rune tells me there are good things ahead as long as I work thru the frictions in the here and now.
Audie can’t do the plasma thing for 6 months: she cant seem to get her iron levels up even after I bought her multivitamins as well as iron supplements. Distraught, she sold more of her old gold jewelry.
It’s been too damned nice out around here for mid-December, but that is al about to change very soon, hopefully overnight: hehe! WTF? We may be denied snow AGAIN: 6-10 inches of lovely snowin northwest Kansas but little or no snow for ICT? Again I ask: WTF?
I whipped up some homemade soft tacos and Spanish rice for us: YUMMY!
Audie to bed early: nap…perhaps.
Eh, I’m done for the day. I’ve had a very enjoyable day with my Audie.
P.M. Prayer: Wuldar/Ullr:
Wuldar/Ullr, god of ski and bow, you glide through the snow-clad forests bringing death to game and life to your people. Remind us that life feeds on life, and that the beauty of the prey is formed generation after generation by the culling ferocity of the predator. Let your Yew-bow be the great World-Yew under another guise, so that through the spirit of the hunter, we may climb its branched to ever higher levels of awareness. HAIL WULDAR/ULLR!!
P.M. Rune: none
