Saint Patrick’s Day is a great time for fun, food, and faith.

I’m not Irish. But, I do find a kindred spirit in Saint Patrick. Years ago, the kids and I read a biography of the man who evangelized the Emerald Isle. Patrick’s is an amazing story of capture, slavery, freedom (in Christ), and escape. It’s also one of sacrifice and loving a people who haven’t loved you in return in order to share the Good News with them.

Some years I remember to wear green or make some fun food for our fam. Some years it slips my mind. But, the lesson of his life and the Legend of the Shamrock-turned-Symbol-O-the-Trinity is one I hold dear.

If you’re thinking of some family fun this weekend. Check out some of these past posts about Saint Patrick’s Day:
