Today marks the time of the suns power and strength in the Earth before he begins his ascent again to order to sacrifices himself for the good of mankind and it's continual to survival. We will rejoice his rebirth at Yule, when the morning sun rises and begins to stay with us longer and longer through the day. Take time to reflect on what you have accomplished this year and what is left to be done before the cold roles in again and we move the majority of our workings indoors around the hearth and celebrate our families.
I don't know about other parts of the globe, but today was truly the first real summer day we have had out here in the state of Idaho. It was truly a wonderful time for our circle's Litha gathering and worth a few good laughs as we all realized we were sweating under the kiss of the the glorious sun rays.
Enjoy the warmth and sunshine, and remember to give thanks for life.
