The larger verses are the Goddess Doxology, the smaller verse is this quote:

Ask within for her advice, she is the Mother of the ages, Nothing surprises her. She has seen it all. --Clarissa Pinkola Estes

ETA:

A Feminist Version of the Doxology

A different verse for each of the 4 seasons

by Louise Budde DeLaurentis

Praise Goddess from whom blessing flows
Praise Her as New Moon's crescent glows
Praise Her in promises of Earth
Praise Goddess bringing us re-birth

Praise Goddess from whom blessings flow
Praise Her as fruits and flowers grow
Praise Her in sunlight's warm expanse
Praise Work and Life's recurring dance

Praise Goddess from whom blessings flow
Praise Her in autumn's changing glow
Praise Her while gathering seeds
Praise Mystery our spirit needs

Praise Goddess from whom blessings flow
Praise Her when winds of winter blow
Praise Her when darkness is our guest
Praise Goddess bringing season's rest

You make the most beautiful things.

Thank you! I am just so ecstatic to finally have found an artistic outlet for myself that doesn't involve being able to draw, something I rather lack. I also enjoy paper-making but it's so messy and needs more space than I have presently.

I had a stack of old Green Egg, Beltane Papers and PanGaias that I needed to let go of, so I saved images from them for my collages. I also had an old goddess-centered appointment book style calendar that I cut up--a lot of the verses come from that. Then I had mundane mags with gardens and home interiors and other things.

Now instead of feeling like a hopeless packrat I can be glad I saved these things and got such wonderful use out of them. :)

Me too - that's why I write. ;) Well, part of why I write. lol

See, I wasn't satisfied to be able to write, I was greedy. I wasn't even happy also being able to sing. I wanted it all! Or I wanted what I thought I couldn't have. :)

Really, I'm two years old.

ROFLMAO

In my case, it was either write or go even further insane...
