a timeless classic ~ 23rd Psalm by Bobby McFerrin

The Lord is my Shepard, I have all I need,
She makes me lie down in green meadows,
Beside the still waters, She will lead.

She restores my soul, She rights my wrongs,
She leads me in a path of good things,
And fills my heart with songs.

Even though I walk, through a dark and dreary land,
There is nothing that can shake me,
She has said She won't forsake me,
I'm in her hand.

She sets a table before me, in the presence of my foes,
She anoints my head with oil,
And my cup overflows.

Surely, surely goodness and kindness will follow me,
All the days of my life,
And I will live in her house,
Forever, forever and ever.

Glory be to our Mother, and Daughter,
And to the Holy of Holies,
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
World, without end. Amen

-taken from Ancient Mother by Robert Gass & On Wings of Song 1993. A must for the pagan library. The 23rd Psalm is only one of the treasures from this, one of my all time absolute, gotta have it on a desert island, favorites.

rain water

I'm on my way to turning off the beast and tuck into bed but, the rain made me wonder ... does anyone besides myself collect rain water? I don't collect from every rain - mostly storms or rains with lots of lightning with it. If I get real lucky, I catch the first rain of a season. I put out a few big deep bowls to increase my chances :) for whatever reason, this happens mostly at night? In the morning I would go out and bring in the bowl of water to run it thru an unbleached paper coffee filter ... lots of things can end up in rain water ... and keep the rain in a reused salad dressing bottle. Sometimes I use the rain in ritual, and other times I keep it to remember rains that have past.

I adore the rain. No matter how many days in a row pass and it just keep coming down, it's so cleansing and full of electricity. Love.

Tell me about your rain.
