Do you believe in Thor?
Norse God of strength, storm, thunder and lightning, protects mankind from bad ones, both foreign and domestic. This is Thor. So honored, we still honor him weekly, Thor’sday / Thursday.

Thor is the son of Odin, husband of Sif and father of Thrud, Magni, & Mothi.  He’s described as a fierce red-haired warrior.

In the 13th century, the Poetic Edda was compiled gathering many Thor tales. Regularly depicted as a warrior, Thor shows great patience when Loki taunts him. He also shows compassion and generosity to a farmer who has given food to travelers. His final battle, as foretold was with a serpent. He killed the serpent but succumb to the venom.

Since mythical times, Thor is credited with keeping trolls in their place by throwing lightening. His symbol is worn by women for gentlemanly protection. Wounded soldiers still invoke Thor for great healing. 

As with all great gods, he shows himself to the faithful. I believe in Thor, because I met him.
