Prayer- Celebrate the Summer Solstice!

Earlier in the we marked the summer solstice--the longest day of the year. The celebration of Midsummer's Eve was from ancient times linked to the summer solstice. Bonfires were lit to protect against evil spirits which were believed to roam freely when the sun was turning southwards again. Why not use this fiery moment as a time of "spiritual summer cleaning"  And say good bye to disappointments by lighting them on fire! We all have these little drains on our psyche that seem to keep us from truly letting go of somethings. Well, today  resolve to stop letting disappointments from the past bring you down and hand them over to God once and for all. Started by making a list of these things on separate pieces of paper. Next, light them on fire.You might be surprised how free this can be!

  1. I'm going to try that and let you know. Maybe this is the"let go and let God" moment I have been looking for.
