Top of the Morning to You!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish, though I do have some Scottish blood in me. But I love everything Irish. Yesterday I was listening on the radio and heard a couple of things that I never knew about St Patrick's Day and St Patrick himself. St Patrick really existed. And he was born into a wealthy family where as a young man he was captured and forced into slavery to raise sheep. True, he's credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. He used the three leaf clover to explain of faith, hope, and love. The article on Wikipedia talks about how he used the three leaf clover to explain The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. Either which way, it's pretty awesome to think about.
My dream vacation is Ireland. I plan on going there someday with my sister. We've got it planned out, and we're slowly working to save for the trip.
