First words
What does a mastersmith do when he would forge a sword or axe to fit the hard palm of a fighter?
Birth naming ceremony:

Mother. This is your Godly child. Look upon him, name her, that s/he may have life well set before ______.
Children's Blessing:

Take sprigs of vervain & angelica, bless in fires smoke, brush each tiny foot, repeating:

Gunnora, Lady who protects women & innocents born of women, guard this child. Let not his feet carry him near the Shadow, rather let him walk in the Light in all times, & all ways.

Touch to each hand, repeating:
Let these hands work in service of Truth & Light & Life.

Brush the head:
Let this mind remain clear & untainted. Grant him the strength to naysay any thought born of Dark.

So may it be always by thy will.
