St Pat's Day & Irish Blessings!

 Happy St Patrick's Day everyone, are you wearing green??

Saint Patrick was a real historical person who lived in Ireland in the 400s and was used by God to convert much of the island to Christ.

I've enjoyed my St Pat's 3 tier; it greets me each morning and make me smile.

May peace and plenty bless your world
With a joy that long endures
And may all life's passing seasons
Bring the best to you and yours.

From the top to . . . .

. . . the bottom, it's a sight to behold!

May you have love that never ends,
Lots of money, and lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
And may God send many blessings to you!

If you look close you will see the little angel Mr D gave me when I was in the hospital last November.

May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in your heart.

Wishing you a pot o’ gold,
And all the joy your heart can hold.

May the dreams you hold dearest,
Be those which come true,
The kindness you spread,
Keep returning to you.

Shamrocks, the national plant of Ireland, add to the sea of green on March 17. Though legend holds that Saint Patrick used three-leafed shamrocks to explain the Holy Trinity, there is no historical evidence to prove it. However, theshamrock has been used as a symbol of the Emerald Isle since the late 17th/early 18th century.

During his life, Patrick became a priest and founded schools, churches, and monasteries throughout the Emerald Isle before his death on March 17, 461 CE.

The meal that became a St. Patrick’s Day staple across the country—corned beef and cabbage—was an American innovation. While ham and cabbage were eaten in Ireland, corned beef offered a cheaper substitute for impoverished immigrants. Irish Americans living in the slums of lower Manhattan in the late 19th century and early 20th, purchased leftover corned beef from ships returning from the tea trade in China. The Irish would boil the beef three times—the last time with cabbage—to remove some of the brine.

Until Next Time

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
