~ Prayer For Peace ~



This is Imbolc, when the ice begins to melt, the earth begins to soften, and the seed begins to stir in the darkness.

Let the small seeds of peace also stir within the hearts of those who have been locked in the ice of fear, anger, and hatred.

As the heat of the sun strengthens and warms the earth, so may the heat of love and compassion strengthen the will and spirits of all of us who strive for peace.

I will strive to soften my impatience, so that my compassion can break free and thrive. Peace is a harvest worthy of my patience.

I cannot hasten the growth of the crop by tugging on the new shoots. But I can prepare the soil where the seeds of peace may grow.

I can allow love to burn so brightly within me that I glow with the force of it, and allow it to shine so that the fear and anger held within the hearts of others begins to soften and melt.

Peace is not an outward ideal, but an inner truth that lies deep within each heart. May it break forth and flourish.

So mote it be.-

I found the first snowdrop in my garden today, hidden under a pile of dead leaves.

Blessed be.

Ahh thanks for your kind comments, but as I look at another year I can't help wondering if it's too little, too late.

I have been patient for so long and nothing changes not really.

I am having a hard time celebrating the Wheel Of The Year when I know how bad things are and how awful peoples lives are.

Knowing that the people who should be changing things aren't....
