I don't know what's happening in your world but in mine, it's Spring!  Sat Patrick's day is March 17 (which also is the birthday of our GoAskAlice-see her column below) and spring begins on March 20 so to me, they just about are the same.  Here in Florida, our spring is about over and our summer is to begin.
Wherever you are, have a fabulous St. Patrick's Day and Happy Spring !

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It thrives through the bog, through the brake, and the mireland;
And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland...
--Andrew Cherry


Common Flowers of Ireland
Because of its moderate climate and the variety of habitats on the island, Ireland has over 800 species of flowering plants. Common flowers across the island include daisies, geraniums, orchids, roses, lilies and, of course, clover (shamrock), which is the national symbol.

Bagpiper at a Funeral
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a Funeral Director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.
He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's' cemetery in the back country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw that the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the
side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.
I played like I've never played before for this homeless man. And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep.
They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I
Never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

Apparently I'm still lost... it's a man thing

Paddy was tooling along the road one fine day when the local policeman, a friend of his, pulled him over.
"What's wrong, Seamus?" Paddy asked.
"Well didn't ya know, Paddy, that your wife fell out of the car about five miles back?" said Seamus.
"Ah, praise the Almighty!" Paddy replied with relief. "I thought I'd gone deaf!"

A farmer named McBride lived alone in the Irish countryside with a pet dog he doted on. The dog eventually died and McBride went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, the dog is dead. Could you be saying a mass for the creature?" Father Michael replied, "No, we cannot have service for an animal in the church, but there's a new denomination down the road. No telling what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the animal."

McBride said "I'll go right now. Do you think $50,000 is enough to donate for the service?"
Father Michael asked, "Why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic?"

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

Prayer for Our Nation

Return to March Index

Return to Main Index

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12
