October 9th

Leif Ericson Day

Born in Iceland sometime before 1000 A.D., Leif Ericson was the son of a Norseman, Eric the Red, who discovered and colonized Greenland. Leif left Greenland for Norway, where he was converted to Christianity. King Olaf commissioned him to convert the Vikings to Christianity, but on his way from Norway to Greenland he was blown off course and reached the coast of North America instead. It is believed that Leif Ericson landed in North America in 1004 (488 years before Christopher Columbus). There is some speculation as to who exactly discovered North America. As a mark of respect for Leif Ericson and the Norse explorers, the Congress of the United States authorized the President to proclaim October 9th of each year as Leif Ericson Day

This Madness Has To End & We Can Do It

I have always said to myself that I would never mix Politics with our Religion. I have now learned you never say “never.” If you do, it will come back to bite you and I have got bit!

We are sitting here listening to the President talk about the Government shut down. I guess I thought down here in Kentucky we would never see the effects of  this. I know what I have seen locally and I would imagine it is going on every where, people are starting to hurt. I have seen parents that live from paycheck to paycheck wondering how they are going to feed their kids, put a roof over their heads, buy diapers and the list goes on and on. The Food Banks are empty because the grant money has stopped. There are people in this country either going hungry or will be hungry if this last much longer.

The individuals that we elected do not live in our world. They are still getting their salaries and all their other little perks. They don’t realize what they are doing to the average person in this country. It is time for the madness to end before the greatest country on this planet becomes a third world country.

You know I believe strongly in what we can do when we come together. It is that time again that I ask you to please join with me in ending this madness. Together, we are a mighty force. You have seen evidence in the past of what we can do. We can do it again. We have to do it for the sake of the people of this country. You know as well as I do, we have brothers & sisters that are starting to suffer. We have to do it for them. All it takes to solve this problem is all of us joining together as one. Uniting our Power again for the goodness of mankind.

Below you will find a very simple spell. All it requires is a white candle and a little visualization on your part. Please join with me nightly in casting it, it won’t take thirty minutes I promise. We have to do this. The madness has to end. We have to end it. Washington doesn’t realize how it is hurting the people of this country. Let us join together once again and put an end to this madness.

Now that the dust has settled
And the heat of the moment has passed
Help (The House/Senate/Congress) come together
To create legislation that will last
 
 
Let them realize the time for fighting is over
Let the healing begin
Let all involved acknowledge
In this fight, no one wins
Suffering comes to all
 
 
Help them put their differences aside
Let their pride no longer stay
Let them instead mend their quarrels
And let harmony rule our Country once again.
 
So Mote It Be

Good Late Night, My Dear Family & Friends!

Good Evening My Dearest Family & Friends,

I woke up this morning full of energy. I could feel the Goddess refreshing my spirit as it ran through my very body. Everything was going so grand. Then I sit down at the computer and guess what? The first thing that pops out of someone’s mouth is “Did you pay the bill? I bet you didn’t pay the bill? I bet we are cut off!” You know people like that you just want to hit them in the head with your mouse. I just ignored the person with all the “cute” comments and politely called the cable company. Went through the regular mumbo jumbo, telephone number, what are you having a problem with, and so on, and so on. Come to find out there was an outage in our area. Of course the technicians are working at it. And your service will be restored at 3:05 p.m. It still amazes me how they can get their repairs down to the very minute. Either they are very good or they think we are very stupid???

I have been wanting to talk to all of you so bad I couldn’t stand it. My dear family, you deserve one big pat on the back. Do you remember when I pleaded and get right down to it, begged you to pray and petition for peace? I hope so and I hope you are still doing it. We are not out of the woods by a long shot. At the time I had called for us to come together and pull our powers, Obama was getting ready to bomb Syria. He had decided he didn’t need Congress approval. He was going to do it! Then all of the sudden the world was calling him fickle because he was going to Congress. Congratulations on making a fickle pickle! Then we came to Congress. That night I went to bed, I heard on the News that Congress was all for war. The next morning I was honestly scared to get up (oh, hell I might not have even woke up, lol!). I turned on the TV and Congress has divided. There suddenly more Congressmen saying “no” to bombing Syria than the night before. I wonder if those Congressmen has some dreams involving the results of us bombing Syria. Then there were other events that happened the reporters called unprecedented. We know why they happened. Admit it! Does it feel good when you can conjure your power for the betterment of mankind? Truthfully. There are times when outside observers need to quietly give gently whispers in their ears or a soft nudge in the right direction. This is not only their world they are screwing with, it is ours. Days like today, I am exceptionally proud to call myself a WITCH! Shouting from the highest rooftops, I AM A WITCH!

I don’t want you to forget that we have to keep an eye on our own government while we have another task.  This task involves justice for those people that suffered from the chemical attacks from their own government. I guess growing up in the States I have a very hard time understanding why people let this go on and happen. I hope and pray to the Goddess I am right. If our government did something like this to us, they would only do it one time. The people would be up in arms, storming Washington. We wouldn’t stand for it. Don’t get me wrong because this is a slippery slope I am treading on right now. But to have your own children die in your arms, wouldn’t that do something to you. I know my two kids treat me like I am not even their mother at times. But if something like that happened to me, I would be filled with rage. Uncontrollable rage and I would lash out at whatever had caused this to happen. I have to stop and think that these people have been oppressed all their lifes. They have been pushed around and treated sub-human. I take what we have in this country for granted at times. It just dawned on me I need to say a prayer thanking the Goddess for giving us this great Country we live.

Our plate is now starting to become full. But with each of us pulling together, we can accomplish anything. Never forget that. We need to petition our Gods and Goddesses for the people of Syria to have strength. Strength enough to let them say “ENOUGH!” Rise up against the government that is torturing them. Bring a new government to power. One that will treat them like they are human instead of lab rats. We also need to petition that the monsters that did this to them get exactly what they deserve plus a little bit more. How any person could harm a poor innocent child is beyond me? To make them suffer and die such a horrible death? It breaks my heart to even to try to imagine what must be going through that precious baby’s mind. This is one of those situation were I want to scream out for the Universe to strike those dead in their tracks that done these horrible actions. But I know better. Justice will be dealt to these monsters.

One more thing then I will leave you in peace, my brothers and sisters. As we all know 9/11 is fast approaching. I believe that was one of the worse days in all of our lives. Whether you lost a loved one or just watched in horror, it was horrific. All I remember is that I wanted my family with me, close to hold and hug. To tell them so much how much I loved each of them. You never know, that’s for sure. After the bombings, the cosmos ripped open. I know myself and several others felt it. In fact, it liked to have drove us crazy. So many souls, lost, confused, not knowing what happened, wanting to see their loved ones but couldn’t. Light a candle and say prayer this September 11th that all those souls have now found peace. Let us pray they have been happily reincarnated and now walk this plane with us once again. Pray for the loved ones they left behind. Pray that they have had the strength and courage to move on, as their loved ones would have wanted. Time passes, some of the pain eases but there will always be that hole in their heart. Pray for the families’ that lost that special loved one. Pray for the souls that were taken so quickly from us. Bless them all that they might find peace and comfort in our Great Mother’s arms.

Blessings to this world that we live,
We pray that one day we will all know
peace and love in our heart for each other.
Until that time arrives, Oh, Mighty Goddess,
teach us tolerance, patience and most of all
love for our fellow man.
So Mote It Be!

Blessings, Peace & Comfort,

Lady A

Have a Super-Fantastic Weekend, Sweeties! Oh, one more thing….

Days of the Week Comments= It just hit me that you might be wondering why the site has the “Stop Censorship” Ribbon on it. It is part of yesterday, when I blacked out the blog. I told you why I had done it and then gave you a link to an article about what the blackout on the internet had accomplished. But like I said at the end, we just won a battle, not the war. The bill still has to do through the Senate and get rejected there before we can celebrate. The Senate is suppose to vote on the bill sometime between now and January 27th. So all the blogs that took part in the blackout, now have the ribbons on them. Maybe we will get lucky and the Senators will surf the net and see how many people are against them meddling in our business and kill the bill too. We can only hope. 

 

But I thought I would tell you real quick, why the ribbon was there. I didn’t want you to think they were trying to censor us, lol! 

Have a great weekend, dearies! 

Lady A
