Happy Ostara a.k.a Spring

Technically, spring doesn’t start until tonight. From dusk this evening to dusk tomorrow evening, light and dark will be equal and balanced.  For the Druids and Celts this is a lesser day of celebration. The Vernal Equinox or Ostara is a time of planting seeds, of awakening and of longer, warmer days ahead. It is a celebration of newness and an appreciation of nature in her infinite wisdom.

One of my favorite songs is “The Rose.” A line from the song: “in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow, lies a seed that with the sun’s love, in the spring becomes the rose.” We all plant seeds, some bear the fruit and flowers of our hearts desire, some don’t. What we reap depends in part on the ‘seed’ we plant. However, the most beautiful seed will not blossom if it is not properly nourished. If we plant a seed of love and then water it with anger and feed it with impatience and condemnation, what grows is some mutant which we can’t handle and in truth, probably don’t want. Likewise if we water it with encouragement and feed it with patience and acceptance what grows is an eternal love which adds beauty to the world and inspires all that gaze upon it.

As you can see, Freedom to a Full Life is undergoing a make-over. New blog topics will include diet tips, recipes, ideas and encouragement for smoking cessation, fashion and beauty news, and more serious issues such as domestic violence, delinquent children, homelessness, drug addiction, and the ever growing poverty world wide.  Please take a few moments to explore the pages of my blog. I’ve given them all a fresh coat of paint and feel free to leave a comment to tell me what you think.

Thanks and have a great day!
