A Month of Devotional Thought — Demeter, Day 19

What is the quality that I like the most about Demeter? It would have to be how she cares for those who she considers as either one of her children or foster-children. Even when she was mourning Persephone, she was caring for a mortal child who she was nurturing in a way that would have made him immortal if the child’s birth-mother had not interfered. And even then, she taught him the arts of agriculture and made him her ambassador, punishing someone who damaged the chariot Demeter had given her foster-son.
