pagan blog project #9

Pagan blog project 

I haven’t been able to do the last few posts but rather than try to catch up all at once I thought I’d do a short ‘e’ post just to get back in the swing of it.

E is for Evening

While working on my OBOD Ovate course it was suggested to say morning and night prayers (for want of a better word) to tune in and take a moment to feel the energies, well the morning devotions I can do and have instantly become part of my daily routine but I just can’t do a night-time one, I get into bed and forget or my husband snoring puts me off!  so thought I’d try at evening and see how that goes. Well I love it, especially if there is a sunset I try to combine it with the sun setting as it felt like the right time. Here is one of my experiences doing a evening devotional.  

The sky was still blue, but it was fading fast, already I could see 3 stars twinkling, I said goodbye to the sun and thanked it for the light and the day. The temperature was falling fast as the sun slipped further and further closer to the horizon, the cold hurt my chest and I could see my breath, I shut my eyes as I said my final farewell to the sun and thought about welcoming the dark. It was then that I became aware of the birds singing, a different song to the dawn chorus, this is a sadder song, like a farewell or was it a lullaby? Were the birds saying goodbye to the sun as well? I like to think so.


  1. A lovely post,and beautiful sunset. I like the idea of welcoming the sun each morning and welcoming the night, but quite honestly, I am not, nor have ever been a morning person; I'm lucky I can drag myself out of bed in time to get to work every day LOL and I often get busy in the evenings and would forget, like you; I'm just not that structured of a person (my bad).

    It sounds like you found a perfect time to bid farewell to the Sun and welcome the Moon. I love your description of your experience and the changing of the bird song... beautifully written!

  2. Wonderful post! I am thankful that I have my dogs, and they must be walked every day. So I used this time to greet the day in the morning, and close my day at night while walking the boys. :)
