Prayer to the Goddess

I know the Laws of Nature are you, Lady.
Keep me mindful that I step upon Your Body,
with your feet,
that my sorrows are Your sorrows,
and that a healthy priest makes all things sound.
I feel Your breath in the wind, and Your hand in mine.
Keep me sincere.
Give me Your work,
which is to be joyous,
and to tend all things, because all things live, of themselves,
and with Your spirit.
Your will through mine, so mote it be.
A Beautiful Poem, and opening Ritual Song written by Francesca De Grandis. I first heard her sing the words when I took a class at her house in San Francisco. It feels like a different time now.. so long ago, yet when I hear the words above, I feel like I'm there once again.. in the arms of the Goddess.
So many wonderful days I spent learning about our Mother through Francesca.. and it's during certain times that you need to feel Her arms around you once again....
I lost a dear friend this week... he had four legs and fur, but he was my friend. He could always put a smile on my face and when I was with him, my Spirit felt lighter... I'll miss him dearly.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's devastating to lose a friend - especially a little furry one. They are the best kind of company and the most beautiful in Spirit.

I'm sure that that poem and your memories will give you some peace.

Blessings to you.

I am so sorry for your loss, he looks like he was a wonderful personality; one that will likely live on through wonderful memories.

Thank you for sharing the poem, the words are so grounding and uplifting all at once.

Losing a beloved friend -- no matter what physical shape they choose to come in -- is very difficult. Although the feeling of loss is great, you have been blessed to have such a companion to share your life with. Hopefully remembering this little soul's impact on your life will bring you solace.
