ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MARCH 17TH, 2009
St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.
Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don't want to press your luck.
A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have
IT’S TUESDAY !!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY EVERY ONE
It’s supposed to be a balmy 65 degrees here in northern Ohio today.
I cannot remember such a nice St. Patrick Day. Usually we have snow.
The thing I remember most about St. Patrick Day was that we always had green jello for dessert when the babes were all home. I wonder if they still do it for their families?
Last night DS#5 came over and set up a ‘new to me’ computer desk for me. DS#6 donated his old one which is bigger than the one I had, and now I have several shelves to put things on also. It is nice to have the extra space and I’m sure I’ll have the shelves all full in no time. So a big ‘thank you’ to both of them.
May the Luck of the Irish be yours today!
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Christ shield me this day:
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL !
Today is St. Patrick's Day, a national holiday in Ireland. This day is not all about leprechauns, shamrocks and green beer. This is a day to honor St. Patrick
In 432 A.D., Bishop Patrick left his home in England and returned to the country where he had once been enslaved. His purpose was to introduce Christianity to the Irish people. Many legends were told about Patrick, including the most famous, that he had charmed all the snakes into the sea, ridding Ireland of them. He was so loved that he was made the patron saint of all of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day has been celebrated in Ireland on his feast day, March 17th, since the year 461. It is said that St. Patrick used the green-leafed clover to illustrate the Trinity.
We’ll be wearing green or we’ll be be pinched for sure, whether we’re Irish or not ... even though we don’t know how the pinch became part of the day’s traditions. Maybe it’s those leprechauns who started the pinching
Today is National Green Beer Day in Ireland and Green River Day in Chicago

An Irish Friendship Wish
May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
The older the fiddle the sweeter the tune
It’s no use boiling your cabbage twice
If you lie down with dogs you’ll rise with fleas
There never was an old slipper but there was an old stocking to match it
Firelight will not let you read fine stories but it’s warm and you won’t see the dust on the floor
Humor to a man is like a feather pillow. It is filled with what is easy to get but gives great comfort
It’s no use caring an umbrella if your shoes are leaking
A silent mouth is sweet to hear
Every patient is a doctor after his cure
Neither give cherries to pigs nor advice to a fool
You’ll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind
SOMETHING TO DO FOR LENT
Today is a day of celebration and thanksgiving. Despite much economic gloom all around, we need to relax and enjoy ourselves on this day. St. Patrick lived through difficult times too but at all times he simply put his trust in God
Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times? Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.
Today I will forgive those who have repeatedly offended me, just as Christ forgives me.
If you hold a four-leaf shamrock in your left hand at dawn on St. Patrick's Day you get what you want very much but haven't wished for
3DAYS UNTIL SPRING!
AND 17 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
Delight yourself in the Lord
and He will give you the desires of your Heart
May there be a miracle in YOUR life today
and may you have the EYES to SEE it!
I Love You All !!!
Be Blessed !!!
