" But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever. "
Happy St Patty's Day! I love a good theme, so today is easy for me. In our house we go green. We wear green, we decorate green and we have a menu plan that's semi-traditional. (I do a pot roast instead of a corned beef brisket, because I would be the only one to eat it!). I love this verse in Psalms because I can identify with it. I have always had a child-like faith. A "green" faith mind you. I have questions, but I never question. I am curious, not cynical. I admit, that I always didn't "get it". I grew up knowing about God and going to church, but I just didn't have a personal relationship with Him until I got to college and even then, didn't always walk the walk. I am so blessed that God has gifted me with this strong faith. I know now how important it is to keep it green; growing and thriving. I pray today, that you wear your green not only on the outside, but inside where it really matters. Amen!
I will probably blow this whole "healthy" thing right out of the water today. I started my day with water (good), a few cups of coffee (ok), and a chocolate donut with green sprinkles(bad!)! But it is St. Patrick's Day and I don't drink beer, so...I'll eat a healthier tomorrow.
|Here's my breakfast of champions!|
Oscar the Grouch donut (for my 3yr old) and chocolate with sprinkles for Mommy!
Here's an Irish blessing for you today,
