Plans: prep for RHK Yule
Thus ends the season of Yule as we prepare for the upcoming year. It's a time to remember from whence you came as well as a time to make plans for the near future. Take oaths, make promises, hold inventory so you know your present position in relation to where you want to be. Remember, "Luck often enough will save a man (or woman) if his (or her) courage holds” (The 13th Warrior).
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.

It was good to have Audie back…at least for a little while.
*Bed Bath and beyond
Why do I get so angry when she wants alcohol?
Pumped up the Self as much as possible (still pewny)
Audie and I still remain touch-and-go.
Audie and I are at peace.
Gretchen’s estranged husband is being an ass and he seems to be doing what he’s doing purposely in effort to fuck up Gretchen’s 12th Night. We as a Kindred are rallying around her. She needs peace.
RHK’s Yuletide/12th Night celebration was nothing short remarkable. Rather than wear garb we opted to dress-up semi-formal. The whole evening was a wow! Audie and the ladies put together a most fantastic feast. We ate, sumbled and read Runes right up until midnight. The entire evening was a night of great fellowship and personal bonding. If we thought we were solid as a Kindred before tonight, we are now nothing short of formidable. After all we’ve been thru, we are finally at peace.
PM Prayer: Bragi:
You are the god of poetry and eloquence; the adherent god of skalds. As a son of Wodan and Frigg; husband of Idun, you have the Runes carved on your tongue. Your inspiration is enhanced by a drink from the glorious mead. Our oath to you, as we partake upon your silver Cup of the Everlasting Word (UPG), we swear our never-ending faith and allegiance to the gods and ways of our ancestors. We stand firm with them as we live our lives to the fullest. We honor the Bragi that resides in us. HAIL BRAGI!
