Love Trumps Hate – Day 2

I started my morning with a lovely read on the blog, We Are Star Stuff.  The post, which is a couple of years old, is on Brigit and Lugh – Triple Celtic Deities. I felt that the images the author used were particularly appropriate for today,  the eve of Imbolc.

Imbolc, or mid-winter, is the Celtic festival held in honor of the returning light, the return of Spring.  Brigid is honored on this day.

Lambs, who are born at this time of year, are animals sacred to Brigid.

May you hold these images in your heart today as a reminder that Love Trumps Hate.

  1. Thanks for the mention – I’d forgotten how much I liked the picture of those lambs. They look so unafraid, staring back at the person who’s taking their picture.

    • Marie, I’m so glad to hear that you got a moments respite from the darkness of our times. Posting these images and finding images and words from others is really helping me too. The name change to Love Drives Out Hate comes from a Martin Luther King quote which also says “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.” It’s so easy to get lost in the darkness…

  2. You’re very welcome!
