Plans: work, Audie opens gift #1
1st Day of Yule
1st 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: Monday we pray to Mano/Manni, god of the moon, and lighting a white candle (symbolic of the moon):
Greetings to you Mano/Manni, silver messenger on high, as you fly silently on your way reflect into our souls the glory of the High Ones that we might aspire to the realms of the gods. Bathe our world in soft brightness, and whisper to our souls of joyous realms beyond our knowing. Mano/Manni let us see the goodness within us and without us, all the nights and days of our lives. MANO/MANNI, HAIL!!
Born of fire, born of ice

Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
AM Rune: Two Runes
Outcome: So it’s going to be a difficult enlightenment…
The day went pretty well; that is, right up until the end of shift. I was enlightened that I used the wrong tool to make a part. Luckily, however, it was useable. I was asked to stay after shift to make it right which I was more than glad to do!
Came home to a sleeping Audie. Will she not wake for her 1st of 12 Yule presents?
Made a pig of myself on some piggy-chops, stewed cabbage and mashed potatoes!
Some online time: catching up on blogs.
It seems that the Third Annual Twelve Days of Yule on Facebook is a HIT! I’m getting positive responses galore. Not a negative word one! People are wanting to share it and I am more than glad to let ‘em!
Okay, tired…Audie never woke up.
PM Prayer: Nirdu/Njord:
Nirdu/Njord, god of harbors and seas close to land, Father of the Vanir; Freyr and Freyja, help us to remember the cargoes of wealth that float to our doors daily from the wonderful universe in which we live. Though our misfortunes may rise and fall like the tides, the chance of prosperity, like the eternal sea brimming with fish, is still there. Like the salt-sea spray, awaken us to the possibilities that surround us, so that our nets may be cast wide and return full of life’s gifts. HAIL NIRDU/NJORD!!
PM Rune: none
