May the strength of God pilot us,

May the wisdom of God instruct us,

May the hand of God protect us,

May the Word of God direct us.

St. Patrick - 5th Century

Several years ago Mike and I were able to see Ireland from coast to coast.  It was remarkable the influence that St. Patrick had on the island.  What many don't know is that Patrick was English but was kidnapped as a teenager and sold into slavery.  It was during his time as a slave (in Ireland) that he converted to Christianity.  He escaped and returned to England to his family.  Decades later he returned to Ireland to preach the Gospel.  Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Here are a couple images from our time there:

We loved our time in Ireland!  We scored a CRAZY good deal and it included a rental car and hotels in three different cities.  It was the ultimate road trip.  Part of the good deal was that it was off season.  Hence why these photos are sooooo gloomy.  Plus we only took our little camera.  All that to say - hope you had a WONDERFUL St. Patrick's Day and didn't get pinched.
