Sunday Homily: It’s Ok To Cry

Let It Out

It's Ok To Cry

It’s Ok To Cry

In today’s world we are often overwhelmed with self-help advocates telling us to be happy. Chose happiness and everything will be fine. And when we fail at walking that path, we think something is wrong with our view. Or feel we’re not good enough or spiritual enough or mentally healthy enough within ourselves that we can live up to that talk and be happy. Which only makes things worse.

It would be nice if life were that easy, that we could simply chose to ignore the hurt. But in reality we all face challenges that we can’t always be happy about. We can’t ignore that part of our existence. Yet we don’t have to dwell in the moment and make it worse either. This is yet another example of how balance is what we’re here to accomplish. We don’t have to be happy about being kicked when we’re down; it really is ok to let the tears fall. Continue reading

Merry Solstice 2014

springtimeOde To Spring ~

The great Sun rises with the glow of fire,
as seeds are stuck in the muck and mire.
But spring is here on this solstice day,
and warmth returns to our rocky way.

With thunder and rain, the seeds break free.
They push through the Earth for all to see.
Bursting with colors so brilliant and bright,
they glimmer and glow in morning dew light.

And where be you on this luscious morn,
tied up in bed till the spring is be born?
Get up, come sing and dance with me.
Howl with the wolf and flutter with the bee!

It’s Springtime now and the north must wake.
The snows subside and the ice will break.
It’s a day to feast, to laugh and to sing!
For all the bright blessings, we give thanks to Spring!

Merry Ostara To All In The North – Happy Mabon To Those In The South.
May your celebrations be bright and filled with joy.
May your tables be plentiful, its chairs be crowded,
and your hearts be filled with love and good cheer.

Mother Nature’s Waters

snowwolfCollecting & Using Water For Rituals

Practitioners of pagan paths have long been associated with and connected to nature and all its elements. Using natures energy to empower workings and promote their connection to spirit, can be found on every continent throughout history.

When the world relied heavily on the swing of Nature’s spirit, rain and snow were honored components of every day life. Crops needed the right amount of rain to flourish. Winter needed the right amount of snow to maintain water supply. That hasn’t changed over the ages. But as societies became more urban, the focus on Nature’s energy and our connection to it has faded.

Today people notice the extremes of weather and pay little attention to its every day impacts. Unless you’re a farmer, or have your own garden in your backyard, you may not give the rain a second thought. But if you’re pagan and look for the energy in Nature’s movements through our world, you know it can be both an omen and a blessing. Continue reading
