Hope my friends of the Earth-based persuasion enjoyed their celebration! I had a spectuacular day, celebrating with my circle members, who are gentle, fun, intelligent souls.
During ritual we named the things we are thankful for, and I had so many. Life, family, friends, and a possible budding relationship with a sexy, smart, great guy (met him in Walmart of all places :) ). Life has been rocky this last long while, but the goddess has blessed me. In spite of all the pain and crap, I'm thankful to be alive.
Bright blessings to all!

Now is the Time if the First Harvest,
When the bounties of Nature give of themselves
So that we may survive
O God of the ripening fields, Lord of the Grain,
Grant me the understanding of Sacrifice
As you prepare to deliver yourself
Under the sickle of the Goddess
And journey to the lands of Eternal Summer
O Goddess of the Dark Moon,
Teach me the secrets of rebirth
as the Sun loses its strength and the nights grow cold…
(Crumble grains of wheat and let them fall on your altar or table.
Take a bite of the ritual fruit and continue…)
I partake of the First Harvest,
Mixing its energies with mine
That I may continue my quest
For the starry wisdom of Perfection
O Lady of the Moon and Lord of the Sun,
before Whom the Stars halt their courses,
I offer my thanks
For the continuing Fertility of the Earth.
May the nodding grain loose its seeds
To be buried in the Mother’s breast
Ensuring Rebirth in the Warmth of next Spring…
(Consume the rest of the ritual fruit)
It is appropriate to plant the seeds from the fruit consumed in
ritual. If they sprout, grow the plant with love and as a symbol of
your connection with the Goddess and God.
From you posts I see you are planting seeds of love of your own!
Like a seed, a new day, a new way promises potential of growing to fruition. Your body and spirit are in tune with your heart and Mother Earth. You sense this reunion of your parts with joy and love, like finding a brother who you thought was lost and possibly dead. Embrace your precious beloved heart brother, so essential. Embrace your own heart. It loves you, you Know. Embrace your lustful intimacy and the energy it gives you both. Embrace mother Earth, Mother of all. Feel her lovingkindness.

Well then. Wallmart is full of surprises, isn't it?
May high summer be a time of fullness and abundance.
