Blessed Yule!

Born is the Sun God; the promise of the continuation of life. We decorate our homes with evergreen boughs, holly and berries to symbolize warmth and life. Candles are lit to bring the welcome light to darkness; the days will now begin their journey to extended light. Gather around the hearth-fire to ring in the blessed Yule and peace to all.

Deep within the still centre of my being, may we find peace.
Silently within the quiet of my home, may we share peace.
Gently within the realm of human and animal kind, may we radiate peace.
The warmth of the summer is a memory; we are far from that place.
We witness darkness, the bare oak, the cold earth, and the black sky.
My eyes are wet with tears for the passing of the light.
Yeah, but tonight the light is reborn on Earth as it is in my soul.
May the strength, power and love of this moment live deep  in my centre and inspire us all.
Blessed Yule!

May the blessings of the Goddess and God be with us always.

My sweet Moonshadow likes to lay in the warmth of the lights on the evergreens; as you can see, they are a bit trampled. LOL.
Have a Merry and Blessed Yule!
