Plans: day off, RHK meeting
Greetings to you Sonne, Lamp of Wodan/Odin: newly risen! Hail to you who has shown on all our ancestors, who shines on us, and who will shine on our decedents yet unborn. Share with us some of your light, your energy, your power, so that we might better fight our battles and attain our goals. SONNE/SUNNA HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: I made a WONDERFULLY full breakfast this morning; scrambled eggs w/ cheese, bacon and hash browns…yummerz!
Major, HUGE grocery excursion; looks like it’s my “voluntary sacrifice of resources”…hahahahahaha…
A Kindred member called Audie asking for chocolate frosting. Audie made a beautiful triple-decker yellow cake with lots of chocolate icing. It was so beauty it was well worth taking a picture for posterity. I’ll post an online pic as soon as I can.
Went armed with stuff to the RHK combination closed/open meeting. I took a couple of bunches of spring bouquets for both families, the chocolate cake and the Wardruna CD http://www.wardruna.com/runaljod/gap-var-ginnunga/ for them to copy. We had a great meal, good discussion and good hail to Summer Finding (aka Spring Equinox). After that I had a great counseling session. Gebo runs thru RHK.
I confessed to them at the RHK meeting how I have been feeling run-down in my faith. It has been with the help of this CD and continued reading of the Prose and Poetic Eddas that I have started making the comeback necessary to maintain my status as Godi. Perhaps I kind of lost sight of that for a while; it’s only thru hard work and continued growth that compels me toward the highest standards I have placed on myself. Perhaps too, it’s due to all the training I’ve received from working in several Christian churches and seminary training. I don’t want any leadership abilities I may have to be anything but above board! I guess this is my sacrifice for my relationship with the members of RHK and to show them how much I appreciate them.
As wonderful as the Gebo Rune is, the challenge that comes along with it is amazing. Sure there is a gifting nature to it, but there is also the sacrifice that comes along with it, too.
PM Prayer: Paltar/Baldr
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and out leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
PM Rune: none
