So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day, again.

I watched a great show about St. Patrick a few years ago on the Discovery Channel, I think it was. Really good and informative. I wanted ot know all about this man because I chose him to be the patron saint for my two sons when they were baptised. It was great. According to most information, this is who St. Patrick was. One of the things I love the most about this saint is that he wasn't perfect. He was a partier in his youth, he likely was running with a bad crowd and in a place where he shouldn't have been and that ended up in his kidnapping and transformation into a slave. But, he rose above it and learned from it and became a tremendous leader.

Why a shamrock?
Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Trinity, and has been associated with him and the Irish since that time.

In His Footsteps:
Patrick was a humble, pious, gentle man, whose love and total devotion to and trust in God should be a shining example to each of us. He feared nothing, not even death, so complete was his trust in God, and of the importance of his mission.

But, it is a secular holiday as well as a religious one, so here is my secular hilarity for the day: My son as a leperchaun.

I have a feeling Army of Dad will be kicking back some green beer tonight after he gets off work.
