The Cross and the Shamrock

We don’t have shamrocks in our backyard, so these leaves will have to do 🙂 Cross carved by my little sister.

Today, we celebrate the life of St. Patrick; he shared God’s love with the nation of Ireland, which would not be the same if not for him.

May luck be our companion
May friends stand by our side
May history remind us all
Of Ireland’s faith and pride.
May God bless us with happiness
May love and faith abide.
