Plans: prep for Rheinwood Yule, 4th Annual RHK Yule
Twelfth Night 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, boast, 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).
AM Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Walburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Walburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women as their own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL WALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing 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, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, 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: What an ABSOLUTELY PERFEKT Rune for today!
Audie stayed up late last night further prepping for the RHK Yule feat tonight!
One more check of the Hof; all is in good order.
The entire day was spent doing nothing but prepare for the RHK Yule. Sometime it seemed that all would not get done but all is in readiness.
What an absolutely WONDERFUL Fourth Annual RHK Yule Celebration for 2010! Only pictures will do this celebration justice. I could rattle on and rattle on, but you would just have to see for yourselves! The feasting was wonderful. Our honored guests were magnificent! Having two members renew their oath was exhilarating! Having two more oath for the first time was breathtaking! The fireworks we shot off at midnight was just as fun as hel!
Bathing in the afterglow of Rheinwood…Ahhhhhhhhh…
PM Prayer: Eger und Rahana/Aegir and Ran:
Eger und Rahana/Aegir and Ran, keeper of the deep hall at ocean’s bottom, host to the drowned and the sea lost. Your dwelling might be thought sad and gloomy, but you are known to be kind and hospitable ale givers. In your goodness then, cheer us when waves of misfortune pound our life’s fragile boats to the bottom. For even at the bottom, there is warmth, cheer and hope. Be our assurance and our inspiration to strive on despite the swells and swirls of fate. HAIL AEGIR and RAN/EGER UND RHANA!!
PM Rune: none
