The Secret to Life

St. Patrick’s Day…tomorrow…lots of school parties today though…you might be planning a special meal or maybe you’re like what’s the big deal. 

It seems sometimes as an excuse for a party, or rowdy behavior…kind of something you want to stay away from.

But, I saw something last night that said, St. Patrick is much more important than you might think.  Not just for the Irish.  Not just for wearing green.  Not just for corned beef and cabbage, but for the secret to life.

He came as a slave to a country that was deeply spiritual but had a spirituality of searching. The Celtic spirituality was rooted in nature.

A lot of the old Celtic symbols were attempts to unravel the secret of life, a secret that seemed to elude them until St. Patrick came to Ireland.

He taught them the real secret to life, that there is only one God and that you have a soul that will live forever.

Replace Fear with Faith

When you think about wedding planning… a lot things come to mind…love…excitement…stress…bridezillas…

Read about this bride that actually didn’t just book a photographer for her wedding day, but for the wedding planning. 

She did it because she wanted people to see the process she was going through of planning her wedding, and having treatment for cancer. 

The photographer followed her to dress fittings, and to the hair dresser when she shaved her head before chemo.

She said, “What I was going through was personal, but it’s something people need to see. A lot of people are scared of cancer, and it’s important for people to see that you shouldn’t be. ... I won’t live in fear.”

Reminds me of something my grandma taught me to pray…

"God please replace my fear with faith"
