Wednesday Wisdom: Faith

Einzelne Kerze

“We’re people who have enough faith in the future and enough stability in the present to bring children into the spiral of life or nurture children who are not born to us.”

– Starhawk, Diane Baker, & Anne Hill, Circle Round: Raising Children in Goddess Traditions

“Part of what gives me continued faith in a body I doubted for so long is the milk that comes whenever it is needed.”

– Francesca Lia Block, Guarding The Moon: A Mother’s First Year

 

(I’m trying something new here: a weekly Wednesday Wisdom post with two or three profound or beautiful thoughts on a theme related  to Paganism and childbearing. An invitation to meditate or just to pause a moment and consider.  What do you think?)
