Lughnasadh – Give Thanks

Ripened grain waiting to be harvested

Lughnasadh or Lammas is a time to celebrate the first harvest of the year – the harvest of the grain.

As a child I lived in suburban London, sadly removed from the natural rhythms of the countryside. But I do have fond memories of staying in caravans during the long school summer holidays. I was always fascinated by watching the combine harvesters bringing in the grain harvest. 

Today, the sight of the ripened grain waiting to be harvested still fills me with that same sense of awe and wonderment that I experienced in my childhood. I am reminded of the miracle of how nature provides for us each and every day of our lives. 

A time to give thanks.
