The beginning of February is the festival of Lammas, or First Fruits. It’s the start of the harvest, when we look forward to what the full harvest may be. Our group focussed on the many things we have to be grateful for, and we each filled a ‘gratitude jar’ with symbols. I put a fairy sticker on the lid of my jar to indicate my gratitude for the magic and spontaneity in my life.
What fruit is ripening in your life right now? This pagan chant reminds us that all life is cyclical:
“Corn and grain, corn and grain
all that falls shall rise again.”
