I looked at the calendar today and realized it is my 4 year diviniversary of the Rite of Parent Divination (RPD). Four years ago today, I logged into Yahoo Messenger and spoke with Hemet (AUS) regarding who my gods were. It seems so much longer than that. I was actually a remetj for several months before deciding to complete the RPD. Four years ago I was officially divined a son of Wesir-Sokar, and beloved of Nut and Djehuty.
RPD did not surprise me. It only confirmed what already knew. The clouds didn’t open up and the gods didn’t shine light on my head, but this day does have meaning.
Tonight I went in to shrine, and did senut, and just simply sat there with my father. I thanked Him for giving me a home in this faith. I thanked Him for my brothers and sisters in the faith, which give it life. I thanked Him for giving me a sense of belonging I have never had anywhere else.
I am blessed to share this special day with two very lovely sisters in the faith. I pray they are always blessed by the memory of this day as well. I am very blessed to have been led here and have a home. I thank the gods, the Nisut (AUS), the priests, the shemsu, and the remetj who have shared this journey with me.
It may just be a number on a calendar. It may just be someone saying what I already knew, but it is meaningful. It is a remembrance of the day I decided to follow Him. I decided to be His shemsu, and allow Him to lead me. Wesir is the master.
