sweet warmth of love overflows my being and reaches out to each of you, enveloping you with love, honor, laughter, fairy giggles, intense full bodied hugs and kisses raining upon you.
wow, I am so excited to find this thread.
What Mama Bear wrote (way back in April) resonates strongly.
Lutheran confirmation. Stopped going once Mom died when I was 16. Searching for the Mother figure, found Goddess religion in college and felt I came 'home.' Joined a coven once out of college - so, 'raised' Wiccan. HP died, coven disbanded and we moved to the woods, furthering our search for enlightenment. Discovered that hippie is Happy Intelligent People Pursuing Infinite Enlightment (from Mama Usnea and Shamus).
Now live on The Farm in Tn enjoying new life w/ dd.
I have learned a lot of different truths from people, books, music, & Gaia that the term Pagan is too limiting for me, also. I take a little bit from everything and try to live honestly. I also enjoy Jesus' teachings. I just don't care for the folks that try to cram his message/resurrection down my throat...they have missed the whole meaning/msg! sigh. Some do not realize that we will all be partying in Summerland/Heaven together!! or swirling around in the ether.
What I miss now is my spiritual family (back in KY) to celebrate the holidays and the moons. Celebrating with dd and dh is okay, but.....sometimes, we are just too tired to really get into the swing of things. Aaaah, yes...back to the basics and the simple rituals. Yes, Alayne, even lighting a candle or eating seasonal food is enough. (how easily I forget
What have you folks done w/ your wee ones (1.5 yrs) to involve them w/ Goddess and ritual? What can they handle?
I do have Circle Round and Blessed Be. am looking forward to when my dd can participate. But, in the meantime? Suggestions?
Much love and thanks for reading my long intro
