Back to Blogland :D
It's that time of year (in the north) again...mwahahahaha....
I have sighed up for 3 blog parties for next month.
First up is Magaly's Witches in Fiction (and no you don't have to be a writer to join in, but it may contain scary stories so be warned)
Secondly is a funky hat wearing kind of gathering hosted by Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist(I has a new hat *squeeee....*)
And Finally(and probably very freakishly) is Annie Walls homage to Edgar Allen Poe :D
Can you tell my juices are bubbling and flowing over these awesomely creepy events?
But first we have Mabon...celebration of a glorious harvest, and this year I have been blessed with a wonderful crop of apples...cooking/eating and crab apples.
not to mention the glut of blackberries!
So today I have "Autumn sunshine" to last me through the winter nights
(or crabapple jelly lol)
And today I was out harvesting in the hedgerows so that tomorrow I can make...
Rose hip syrup!!!!
And finally I would like to share a prayer I wrote way back in 2011 that seems equally appropriate this year...
A PRAYER FOR MABON
At this time of balance and healing, I ask the great Mother Goddess (feel free to insert the name you worship) to give those of us with the will, the power to heal this world.
Let our wishes be for joy and happiness for all.
Let the harvest be bountiful for all nations in equal measure, and let rage and hatred be tempered with mercy.
I pray you guide the hearts of those holding others against their will, and that they be allowed to return to their families unharmed.
I give thanks unending for the glorious harvest in my life. For 2 strong sons, and a truly loving husband. And especially for the love of good friends, always in our hearts no matter the miles between us.
