Guadalupes de Mi Casa

Today I light a candle for

The Feast Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe
On this most holy of days…we gather here to celebrate
La Virgen,
as well as the joy of being a part of this process…
this commitment to each other and ourselves.

The Virgin of Guadalupe reigns supreme here in the Southwest, and in, and around my home, as well.

She is found in almost every room…

as well as in our yard and my studio.

 She sometimes lights up me up in a revolving, psychodelic kind of way

or whispers softly from a vintage canvas…

I will visit each one this morning with this prayer:

Blessed Guadalupe
I ask that you hold us all in your benevolent embrace, as we cherish and honor you today,
and always

A special thank you to Rebecca @ for leading us on this most beautiful journey, and reminding us of what Christmas is truly all about…
