8Th Annual Blog Crawl for St. Patrick's Day

Click the  icon above to return to our hostess, Kathleen!

For certain I    can look back at many  randy St. Paddy's
Day parties... whether here in me own wee house, or  other  grand places!

 Like below

My how her Irish eyes  were always dancin"!
Happy as a lark  any time the tables were laden wi'  festive food~  just fer the takin"
No truer words were e'er spoken

To  look back...   take stock...  and move forward   with one o' the  grand  ole Saints of yore...St Patrick...

Credited for   bringing Christianity to    Ireland  by   using    the  3  leaved  shamrock to demonstrate the Trinity!
St. Patrick was born in Roman-occupied Great Britain ca. 390..

 We, too, are charged  to   take  Christianity into  our realm of influence... I am reminded today  that it is my privelege  to  follow   and  practice  my God-given  task,.,.,  just a  daily walk really ...   
but  I dont want to  forget  a bit'o Blarney, too!!!
for it suits me verra weel indeed  to  bring out my  greens in March
 and raise me glass to  King Brian!
 To recite me  dear blessing  to one and all in me house
for   tis surely not  a small thing!
For  the Irish   loves a bit of  hospitality  and merriment for sure!

 so  the wearin' o' the green is  a callin'
whether  on 
 me fine self..  or  in me  fine house..
Well, Id  ne'er  be shamed of  donnin  the shamrock..
to honor the land o' me dreams!
