St. Patrick

And why we celebrate him.... When he was a child he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland as a Slave. After a few years he escaped and made it back to his family. Upon entering the Church, he returned to Ireland and became a Bishop. He was an active missionary in the North and Western parts of Ireland. His death was on March 17th.

But what he is most known for is driving the snakes from Ireland. It is said that they bothered him while he was in the middle of a fast. But some say that the snakes are really a symbol for witches.

So there was a bit of history for ya....

Wishing you a rainbow

For sunlight after showers—

Miles and miles of Irish smiles

For golden happy hours—

Shamrocks at your doorway

For luck and laughter too,

And a host of friends that never ends

Each day your whole life through!
Happy St. Pat's!!!

Don't drink to much and I'll try not to, also!!

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.
Gotta Run,
