All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Tried to go from a script this year instead of off the cuff like the kids and I normaly do. Total caos! Things always seem to go better when we just go with the flow.
We did the normal welcoming of the young sun to call in the longer days . Gifts around the circle and tapers to bring in the light. I did in joy the fact that we had friends with us and I hope things go better for the next holiday.
I geuss it is hard for me to be outa my element from being in a new town and all. So used to being at the old circle grounds and knowing the land well enough to walk it all barefoot in the dark.
I find it harder and harder to keep my young sons interested in the pagan way. Teaching them it isnt a "religion" but a way of life seems to go in one ear and out the other. The way we walk and talk, the things we put in our body and the things we eat. How we treat ourselfs and others. Reminding them that those who say it isnt my problem when they pass trash on the road and nt pick it up is a symptom of a worldride issue.
Family Meditations have gone from every morning to when ever I can grab them all in the same room long enough to sit steal. lessons have gone to weekly to esbats to i cnt remember the last time. Sometimes I wonder if i wont even get them to do the once in a blue moon mealtime prayer.
So ya YULE!
It went ok...I geuss. So nt what I am used to. NEXT TIME I dnt read ..lol UGH!
