St Patrick's Day Is Near...


Sending love and blessings to all, from my Irish Angel..
I always find the story about St. Patrick so interesting..
As a child, we always use to think he drove the snakes from Ireland..but as I got older I realized that was a myth..no snakes in Ireland.
St.Patrick wasn't even Irish, but English..He was kidnapped as a boy and a slave in Ireland for 6 years. It was all heathen country pagan Druids..He escaped only to dream years later he must go back to Ireland and that he did..When he died in 461a.d., he had founded 300 churches, baptized 120,000 believers..His use of the Shamrock was to teach the Holy Trinity..
People would question..How can the Father, Son and Holy Ghost be one?..Well, look at the Shamrock and the three leaves, yet all are from one stem.. I must say, one of my favorite stories..and it always helped me understand the Holy Trinity..Happy St. Patrick's Day to all...
Till next time, keep looking up..

Top of the mornin' to you! St. Patrick's Day is my oldest grandson's birthday (he's 14 this year!) so certainly a special day in our family. May all your snow melt soon. xo
