I love to have candles lit of my mantle peice and watch their flames flicker in the half light. It helps me cast my mind back to memories of past times, and of loved ones, be they with this realm or another.
Sometimes the candles have chance to burn to their end, and other times they are put out at the end of the evening. When I put the candles out, I like to make a blessing for something good. Perhaps a wish to the world at large, perhaps one to someone who needs help at the time, or may be a request for help with something I am struggling with.
Will you light a candle today? Who would you like to bless right now?
