Kitchen Witch Wednesday
All religions believe that earth, air, fire and water were provided by their deity. It's nice to take a moment to remember and give thanks for these most basic gifts, that symbolize the world and everything in/on it. Earth-based religion practitioners often have very ornately decorated altars with symbols of each of the four elements. This is the most simple and elegant representation I've seen. But "ah..." some say, "there are five elements. Where is Spirit?" Spirit is the practitioner, the prayer-maker. You, yourself. Or it's the Spirit you pray to. So many different ways to see the same objects and put them to worshipful use. It really is fascinating.
