My dear and ever-patient friend Del wrote this fantastic post about Sacrifice.
I know what it’s like to sit in the darkened silence, praying, knowing that a single word, touch, or even omen-like coincidence would be all the assurance I needed in the world. Yes, I am saying that even though I do experience messages from the Gods and have a reciprocal relationship with some of my patrons, there are also times when I sit in the darkened silence as well.

I feel I have been incredibly fortunate. There are a number of things very important to me which I have not been asked to give up. For that I can’t begin to express how thankful I am. But other things – some seemingly small – are being chipped away, bit by bit. That is the price of being His property and His lover.
