Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I went to find something green today to wear and all I could find was a winter sweater that's lime green and a middle of summer shirt that I would have frozen in. So I wore green capris (spelling?) and a white shirt. I'm going to try to find some sort of green ribbon I can tie around my bun or my neck as a necklace so that I won't be pinched when I go to the studio in a while for ballet. I learned something I didn't know about Saint Patrick today. Did you know that he wasn't originally from Ireland? When he was sixteen he was kidnapped by pirates and taken over to Ireland as a slave but he was actually born in Britain. While in bondage he became a Christian and he found strength from the Lord to get through his terrible circumstances. Several years later he escaped and came back to his home and felt led to become a priest. One night while sleeping he dreamed that the people of Ireland were crying out to him and begging him to come and teach them about Christ. So that's what he did. He used the clover as an example to teach the people about the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. There's an excellent short biography about him in the book "Trial and Triumph".

Do you like the song about Ireland on our playlist? I love that song. :) The Luck of the Irish to You!

Good post about St. Patrick. I would love to go back to Europe too! It would take a long time to see everything there is to see over there.
