to my sisters.....

TO SISTERS EVERYWHERE! A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day,
drinking iced tea and visiting with her mother. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life, and the obligations of adulthood, the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter. "Don't forget your Sisters", she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass.

"They'll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband; no matter how much you love the children you may have; you are still going to need Sisters.

Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them. Remember
that 'Sisters' means ALL the women... your girlfriends, your daughters, and all your other women relatives too. You'll need other women. Women always do."

"What a funny piece of advice!" the young woman thought. Haven't I just gotten married? Haven't I ju…

You have a sunny disposition and are normally one of the first to show up for the party. You don't need too much attention from the host once you get there as you are more than capable of making yourself seen and heard.

unbelievable!! I am on a soap box....

Well, I pass this church on FM 150 just before I get to Hyw 21 every day... and I read the sign to see what new message of BS it carries to the unknowing lambs then just shake my head. But I will be posting a pic of the most recent... it says "Borrowed beliefs have no power." Can you imagine the utter gall? Or maybe the Christian 'faith' had forgotten that the beliefs they are now proclaiming were originally of the Goddess? Or maybe, as a Dianic Wiccan, I am just flat out offended?

After co-opting/borrowing/stealing/whatever fro the indigenous earth-based religions they have the audacity to tell you not to "borrow belief"? Our holy days became Christian feasts or saints days or birthdays. Why? Because the heathens would not stop celebrating them and if you can't convert the people, ursurp all their traditions and then claim they are yours. Somehow, worshipping the Earth Mother that birthed & sustains us became about worshipping the Father God in…

well, wanted to post about the wonderfully full weekend of "The Wheel of the Year" intensive I have started... but work has been an utter nightmare nd I am still catching up from last week.
Off early 1/15 for icing, missed 1/16-17 because of ice/snow... then had to catch up an entire week but I took off early Friday so I could make the WTI intensive on time Friday evening... ARGH!!!

I will be working late today to catch up some invoicing... got over $80,000.00 post in 4.5 hours Fri but none of the invoices entered...I can only do SO much at a time!!

So, for now, the Wheel of the Year WAS intensive, in all aspects of the word... and I will post about it soon!
