Ancient and Eternal Mother,
our (Eben) Stone of Strength,
our (Ezer) Helper and Source of Empowered Life
your third-eye upon us is kind,
and your earthen advice gentle.
Always you affirm the creative energy
and the strength of the human good
that is within us.
When we go astray, speak to us,
for in tender care
you welcome, nurture and inspire us,
and lead us to seek Wisdom.
You delight in those who live
out of compassion and womb love.
May we be strengthened as community
and individuals to dispense your
liberating and merciful heart.
Wise Crone, Aspiring Maiden, Ezer of Love.

The first image was arranged (by me) and photographed in Capitol Reef National Park in Utah in October, 2015. This was on my way to the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City where I participated in a panel presentation on the Divine Feminine organized by Dr. Jann Aldredge-Clanton.
In the Dessert Mountains I saw her – Our Lady Ebenezer. Eben is the Hebrew word for Stone and Ezer is the Hebrew word for Helper or the Source of Empowered and Compassionate Living. Ezer in the Old Testament is used only to describe the Divine/Holy One and a woman.
