It is an honor for me to have been chosen to co-host
Inspiration Avenue this week with
Hettienne. Thank you Hettienne.
Inspiration Avenue is a favorite blogging site of mine.
I enjoy the challenges and the friendships there.  
The challenge for this week :
We are a little over the half way point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.
I love the SUN and honor the many celebrations beckoning the return of the sun, and
preparing for the upcoming Spring.
For centuries Christians have celebrated this time with a celebration of lights
called Candlemas.
On the old Celtic calendar Imbolc is a celebration of the first signs of spring:
the melting of January snows, the first blooms, the heaviness of animals expecting birth.
It is a time of awakening, of new life, of new potential. A rebirth of light.

Also celebrated at this time St Brigid's feast Day:
Often the St. Brigid cross is made
