I have been searching for my lost god or goddess. Sadly, I have not found a deity. My life was easier when I believed as everyone around me. Christmas came and went - I went to church with my family and friends -I went through the motions, I kept my thoughts to myself. The reason I keep my thoughts to myself is because I'm not sure what I think. Must one believe in a god or goddess to be happy?
My quest has brought me to study Imbolc. A simple little holiday to remind me (or is it to give me courage?) that winter is half way over. I like this celebration. It seems full of hope and makes more sense than watching a groundhog - what is that all about?
So around my house on this day you will find new, white candles in every room. I plan to light them and wander through the house blessing each room. What? I can't speak a blessing over my home because I have no deity to do the actual blessing? Well, dear reader, this is where I have to let you in on a secret. At this point in my life I believe that we are the source of love and blessings. So today and every day, I wish you and yours happiness and peace.
