Lughnasadh blessing

The original harvest festival, celebrated on 1st  August, the beginning of the harvest season. Traditonally based around wheat, loaves are baked and the blessed and shared - one of my favourite festivals of the year.

May your corn ripe well
And your fruits grow sweet,
Love and abundance at your feet;
May your harvest feed you
And never doubt,
It will feed you both within and out.
May your heart be still
And your soul at rest
Know that you are truly blest.

Blessings on this special day

Well look at that -- I didnt even know and I'm baking special bread for the first time... Zarathustra bread. Must be in tune with the season :)
