Blog Your Blessings Sunday




Yesterday was the holy day of Imbolc, a festival and day associated with rebirth and fertility. Imbolc is also known as Brigid's Day, so-called because it was named after the Celtic Goddess of fire and healing--later to be called Candlemas by the Christians.

Even though I'm a day late, I'm honoring this special day today in my Blog Your Blessings Sunday post because I feel I/You/We are blessed by our ancestors who were aware of the turning of the seasons and left us a legacy of wisdom about the energies to celebrate at certain times of the year.

For more information on Brigid, click here. and the following ONLINE shrine to Brigid with the words below came from this site: Brigid Shrine

"UNDER BRIGID'S MANTLE

Brigantia, Shining Queen of Heaven,
You, our Maiden, Mother and Crone,
You are earth-children's own.
From Green Isle to distant shore,
Far flung, your tales have spread.


They tried, but your fire would not die;
eternal be the flame of Lady Bride.
Inspire us with your wisdom.
May the words to honor you spring up,
As flowers after winter's dearth.


We drink of your healing milk,
Quicken in us the Spirit's rebirth.
May we forge a holy work,
Crafted with generous peace,
Made golden by love.


Such will not fade.
And keep us ever safe
Under your mantle,
Dearest Brigit, fair Queen of Heaven."

A blessed Imbolc to you as well - it was my blessing this week as well.

The poetry was beautiful.

I hope you are recovering well and a very happy BYB Sunday and have an excellent week.

This is a wonderful blessing. It's good to remember we are part of this great mystery and to go with it and love it!
