Candle Lighting for Master's Meal Preparation
I always light a candle when preparing food and nourishment of any kind for Master. The flame represents to me the eternal burning of the flame of devotion within my heart for Him. I light the candle to focus on pouring my love into every action involved in making His food. I use it to remind myself what a privilege it is to prepare His meal or drinks, and to express my desire and intent to nourish Him with love, to create food that pleases His tastes and pleasures, while also fueling His body.
Serving Master Food and Drink
When I serve Master at the table, I always serve Him first no matter who is present. This small ritual is a way for me to show Him that as His slave, I place Him above all others and adore Him most of all I experience in this lifetime.
When I serve Master food while in another room, I bring it to Him on a silver platter and place it on His lap. Again a tiny ritual, but one I always do. For me, it is a way of showing Him that He is my Lord and Master and I am happy to serve His desires.
When I serve Master a drink, I bring it to Him, kneel and extend His drink up, like an offering, with my arms extended, eyes closed and head bowed. This is a ritual Master trained me to do, so it means even more to me then the ones I created myself. To me this ritual is a deep act of submission, knowing it is what He desired for His own pleasure. I find it a beautiful way to express m obedience and submission, while showing Him that I truly hold Him as my Lord, Master and King. When He accepts the offered drink, it is to me a gesture of His accepting me as His slave, of accepting my service.
Kissing Master's Feet
Another ritual Master commanded of me, is to kiss His feet. Again, as it was a ritual given from Him, it is one that moves me deeply. There are times Master will order me to kiss His feet, and there are times I do so on my own accord. This ritual has multiple meanings for me, but always is it a deep expression of my servitude and obedience to Him. I have used it to express devotion, I have used it to beg forgiveness.
