One Witch's Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, although not a Pagan Holiday or festival,
is for me a most magickal holiday. A time to Thank Our Lady
for being part of my life, for gifts she has given & the
compassion she shows us. A time to share her bounty,
which leads me to Kitchen Witchery.

Cooking up a special meal for family & friends
is magick at it's best. Love, happiness even healing can be conjured up.
A witches energy & love can add some mighty powerful
Intention to the spell of her food.
So this Thanksgiving I will offer an Altar to honor the Goddess,
a meal to share her bounty with family & friends,
a special feast for My Lady's creatures who live in our woods, and this prayer:

Iroquois Prayer
We return thanks to our mother, the earth,which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in Whom is embodied all goodness,
and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.
