Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

March 17 is always the day set aside to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but I wonder

how many people know about St. Patrick?

about the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, (the Holy Trinity). He traveled extensively

and made an incredible difference in this world, unselfishly sharing from his heart

about his God (and mine) with such strong compassion and love for humanity.

Somehow the name of the holiday and the man with his story got changed or forgotten, but the color, which is green, now, was originally blue.

The buildings in Fort Worth light-up with green lights, and the water in some fountains in Washington, D.C. is green on this day, originally, blue.

I’ve noticed, lately, the Irish Notre Dame football team’s uniforms are blue and gold (traditionally). “Go Irish.”

Therefore, every store has green shirts, flags, windsocks, coffee cups and more, for the Irish and “festive ones” who like to decorate and celebrate, along with green beer in the bars.

I always cook corned-beef and cabbage for my Irish poet and musician, Mike!

I have three daughters, Shannon, Molly and Bevin. As you can tell by their Irish

names, like their dad, and grampa Mike, they are really Irish. However, I am a little

Irish but half Hungarian, so, I always tell them, Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my

Hungarian, Irish daughters.

They always laugh and enjoy the silliness of that. They are wonderful. smart, beautiful, caring girls. That combination, along with being “daughters of God,” works powerfully in their lives.

Come visit me and my husband, Mike, at Mikedeasyssolidrockcafe, where the Bible is taught and lots of powerful music shared on Facebook and YouTube. Look us up on YouTube for additional programs.

Happy Birthday to two musical young people who live in Seattle and right here in Texas, playing guitar and the Texas girl singing her heart out continually.

Come celebrate with us.
