gettin' back on the altar

I will be doing Mass next on January 21 at SML. At that point it will have been nearly seven months.

It will be interesting to see how it feels after so long a hiatus, not to mention little things like, oh, becoming a mother in the interim.

I've had a plan for new priestess robes, but now I have a deadline! Must get crackin'!

I was never a priestess before I was a mother, but the whole sense of the evocation has an amazing meaning as a mother. Even in the congregants, the lines relating to incorporating intelligence and "the babe catch life with both hands" bring tears to my eyes.

And, recently, I've had an insight that the transition from life to the next incarnation is so much like that of the inception into this one, that when I've been to Greater Feasts those lines shake me...

" Make open the path of creation and of intelligence between us and our minds. Enlighten our understanding. Encourage our hearts. Let thy light crystallize itself in our blood, fulfilling us of Resurrection."

" Giver and receiver of joy, gate of life and love, be thou ever ready, thou and thine handmaiden, in thine office of gladness. "

" Be the hour auspicious, and the gate of life open in peace and in well-being, "

And tonight, as I wait for the process to be complete, and my daughter to call and tell me to come and help catch my grandchild.... well, I just got amazingly overwhelmed... Whew. (sorry to carry the subject so far afield...)
