5th Day of Yule – Remembering the Noble Virtue of Honor:
Honor is the ability to hold your head high in all situations; of personal integrity and
strong moral character. We set standards for ourselves and live according to those standards. We are not encouraged to set low standards, rather, set high standards and work toward them continually, even behind closed doors.
Fruchtbarkeit, we pray to Fro/Freyr, and to Sibba/Sif, lighting green candles (for fertility):
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, Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. We honor the Fro/Freyr that resides in us.
Let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. We honor the Sibba/Sif that resides in us. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!
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: The Runes continue to be positive. Do they reflect the job possibility?
Audie began tearing up at breakfast.
Dillons http://www.dillons.com/Pages/default.aspx for a few things: MADHOUSE!
Audie was obviously upset when I cane home.
I met my niece and her family in Cheney http://www.cheneyks.org/ for lunch with bowling and pizza. My nephew and his family were there, too. My sister-in-law and two of her brothers…great time! For the first time tears began flowing with the prospect of saying good-bye to them for a job.
Audie’s best friend came over for a while
Audie is across the street to wash “momma’s” hair.
I’m here with the animals
It hasn’t been a bad day, but it hasn’t been a very good day. The job prospect has been on my mind all day. A few things bother me about it: (1) The rep said the job is 80% composite work and 20% sheet metal. My experience is 99% sheet metal and 1% composite. Another is the rush to get there. The other thing that I just cant get by is the temp-to-perm. The good things are the pay and the area. I dunno…I cannot deny that Audie’s lack of support is playing a part in this, too. All this may be too premature anyway. I need to have another conversation with the hiring agency for clarification. I
have yet to talk to the TAA people to see what I can do and what I cant do.
A good leader is not a dictator. A good leader accumulates all the information he/she has at his/her disposal to make the best decision he/she can with the information at hand.
PM Prayer: Scata/Skadi:
Scata/Skadi, fleet on your skis and let me be the game you bag with you bow. Stun me with your grace and beauty, tuck me in the skin-sack at your side, and then take me to your home where wolves howl. There, teach me to know the pleasure of the hunt, the joy of exertion, and the crisp freedom of winter and wilderness. Just as you were ready, willing and able to obtain your revenge on the Aesir for the killing of your father, Thiazi,
grant us the same justice in our lives. Direct us to be strong, able and worthy of you. We honor the Skadi that resides in us. SCATA/Skadi, HAIL!!
