A young girl is walking through a meadow when she sees a butterfly impaled upon a thorn. Very carefully she releases it and the butterfly starts to fly away. Then it comes back and changes into a beautiful good fairy. "For your kindness," she tells the little girl, "I will grant you your fondest wish." The little girl thinks for a moment and replies, "I want to be happy." The fairy leans toward her and whispers in her ear and then suddenly vanishes.

As the girl grew, no one in the land was more happy than she. Whenever anyone asked her for the secret of her happiness, she would only smile and say, "I listened to a good fairy."

As she grew quite old, the neighbors were afraid the fabulous secret might die with her. "Tell us, please," they begged, "tell us what the fairy said." The now lovely old lady simply smiled and said, "She told me that everyone, no matter how secure they seemed, had need of me!"

We all need each other.

                          

                  

               

May the blessing of the light be with you always, light without and light within.

May the sun shine upon you and warm you heart until it glows like a great fire so that others may feel the warmth of it.

And may the light of your eyes shine like candles in a window at night, bidding the wander to come in out of the dark and the cold.

And may the blessings of the rain be upon you, the sweet and tender rain; May it fall upon your spirit as when flowers spring up and fragrance fills the air.

And may the blessings of the rain wash you clean and fair, and may the storms always leave you stronger and more beautiful.

And when the rains are over, may there be clear pools of water, made beautiful by the radiance of your light, as when a star shines, beautiful in the night, pointing the way for all of us.




                    

I am a peaceful Pagan. I may not share your beliefs, but I am not evil. I don't believe in Satan. I can't turn you into a frog or make you fall in love me with a magic potion. I am a mother, a daughter and a sister. I drive a car, have a job, pay my bills and taxes and grocery shop and was a Girl Scout and 9th grade spelling bee champ. I worship the Goddess and the green Earth and all her inhabitants. I will always respect your beliefs and ask only that you let me enjoy the faith I love.
