O #God, Who dost gladden us with the yearly festival of #blessed Cecilia, Thy Virgin and #Martyr, grant that we who #honor her by this solemn rite, may follow the example of her godly life.

Have you ever wanted to give during the Holiday Season but didn't know who to give to or thought your contribution wouldn't make a real difference or maybe you just don't have time to volunteer to give... The Fredericksburg Fallen Heroes are 800 wreaths short of their goal and for $15.00 you will guarantee that a Veteran has a wreath on their headstone at the Oak Hill location. Imagine the feeling when you drive by or see the picture and say "I was a part of that" ❤
We have decided to help the Fredericksburg Fallen Heroes meet their goal. If you would like to make a difference go directly to
We will be out collecting donations tomorrow in Fredericksburg & Colonial Beach give us a call if you'd like to donate 540-842-5248

Elder - Tree of the Fae
Ruled by venus and the element water.
Sit still long enough and you'll catch the fae tending to an elder tree. However Legend says that one who falls asleep under an elder, will be whisked away into the spirit realms : perhaps a warning to be taken seriously - as the bark of this faithful fruiting tree is poisonous.
This plants ability to act as a healing modality both in the physical and etheric vessels makes it a great ally when casting healing & protective spells.
Drinking elderberry juice is said to strengthen the intuition and aid ones quest to commune with the fae.
Medicinally this plant is rich with bio-flavanoids (antioxidants that keep the immune system in tiptop shape) & boost the production of *cytokines - proteins that act as messengers within the immune system response to assist the body in fighting off free-radicals & disease.
Strong antiviral agent making it a great cold/flu remedy.
Anti-inflammatory and immunostimulating properties found in elder berries aid in relieving allergies. Acts as a diuretic, flushing the kidneys of toxins- helpful when treating urinary tract & bladder infections.
Also high in fiber - supporting the gastrointestinal system, digestion, & increases nutrient uptake in the small intestine.
Prehistoric remnants of this medicine found near Switzerland, Italy, and even ancient Egypt remind me of a deep ancestral connection to these plants I'm rediscovering as time goes on.

At bedtime tonight, read 2 Samuel 9:1-13 with your Backyard kid. Pray together for each other, that God will help you to always honor others by keeping the promises you make. https://bit.ly/2y3aUML #clearbranchchildren #honor
Today, i feel like I'm the luckiest man alive to have been given so much value infront of the Lord cuz I had the opportunity to stand inside a tunnel today with damaged pages of the Holy Quran buried all around me, I had the opportunity to say prayer in this amazing place.
I am indeed grateful for the opportunity to take a picture beside 100s of years old written sheets of the holy Quran!! Glory to the Almighty Allah, indeed I'm nothing more than an insignificant servant, He has blessed me with all that i have!
