Day 2 - The Flame Glows

I got home from a wonderful dinner just as the sun was setting. We already had a candle and holder picked out for this. So I hurried off to gather it up and set it on the alter. As the sun dipped below the horizon a few minutes later I lit it.

It was a feeling of being apart of something bigger, something that could easily have a global base. With the candle lit I returned to the tasks I knew must be done with a renewed vigor. A bit of writing and a bit of house work. I had the urge to set aside my regular project and worked on Questions of Faith, a much more spiritual project then the others.

Brighid was there and she moved on. Leaving a small piece of herself and her flame with me to connect me with the others and as a reminder of our time together until the next time.

AS #1 Brighid follower, I find myself weak in the knees when I am"receiving"the flame. I never feel worthy, but to have it passed to someone else would do me in. I am "in the space"for about 48 hours and find it hard for everyday life. I talk to her all the time. I feel fine when she is near.
She shows me the way, she lights my soul. She is the driver in my volvo of life.
I look forward in sharing this with you all. I feel a t-shirt coming on...

Lisa, daughter of Brighid.

Day 20 - Brighid takes the Flame

and spreads Her mantle over all of us.

Mighty Brighid, keeper of the flame,
blazing in the darkness of winter.
O goddess, we honor you, bringer of light,
healer, exalted one.
Bless us now, hearth mother,
that we may be as fruitful as the soil itself,
and our lives abundant and fertile.
