St. Patricks Day Blog Crawl


Hello everyone!  I'm stopping in for the Annual St. Patricks Day Blog Crawl at Cuisine Kathleen.

I've become more of a fan of St. Patricks Day since I learned more about St. Patrick...a man who was kidnapped as a teen, sold as a slave in Ireland, escaped, and later returned to preach the Gospel in the land where he was once enslaved.  I'm not inspired much by luck and leprechauns, but that's moving!   Ironically, I learned that from a small clip of a Veggie Tales Video called Sumo of the Opera (which doesn't seem like it should have anything about St. Patrick in it, but it does).  I've read up a little more here, and  plan to read his Confessio before this this week is over.

This year, inspired by all this and wanting to learn more, I started a little linky party of my own to celebrate the religious roots of this holiday....you can find it on my other blog by clicking the button below:








I've also been collecting some lovely printables I've found on various blogs...here's my fave by Lady Bird Ln (yes, I asked permission, and she was nice enough to give it).




You see, while I don't believe in luck, I do believe in providence...that God intervenes in our lives.  Coincidence is just when God performs a miracle and chooses to remain anonymous.

So...

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

  5. Thanks so much for joining the Blog Crawl! My bil is Irish born, and he said in Ireland it was a day to go to Mass, not the celebrations like we have here. But it has changed even there!
    God Bless you!
