48 Adorations

Inspired by various adorations across the web. Rather than doing 99 – the typical number – I chose to do 48 adorations to the Dierne, as four is a sacred number to him.

I was attempting to write up an eloquent post about love, again, as I found myself answering a question about the religion I am crafting by saying that, “I fell in love [with the gods and spirits].” No words came, though, and I spent the evening frustrated and smacking the keyboard in a feeble attempt to write. I decided to pursue another avenue of sharing my love for the gods, and I have been meaning to make adorations for a while; no time like the present, after all.

    While I love your subsequent post as well, I have to say, this is hot stuff in all the best meanings of “hot”…

    And, of course, it reminds me of someone I quite love as well, as many of the names and titles and descriptors equally apply to him. Mmm! :)

    Mmk, maybe I just suck at numerology (quite possible, BTW), but how did you get 48 from 4? It has something to do with 12…I just don’t know why…halp?

    • Aine

      I didn’t use numerology to get the 48. But! The numbers four and three are sacred to the Four Gods and related spirits. As such, so are the numbers twelve and seven (4×3 and 4+3). Two is also sacred because 2 evenly goes into four. I decided to use the number 12, which basically represents multitudes, the entire religion and spirits and otherworld, and multiply it with the Dierne’s sacred number (since he’s the fourth god, specifically).
