I have always loved St. Patrick's Day. Any holiday that doesn't involve buying gifts is so much more fun! When the kids were very little I started the tradition of making green pancakes with green chocolate milk for breakfast every March 17th. Last night we read about who St. Patrick really was. I think it must be the Irish in me, but this is a wonderful day to remember the example of one man who, by faith, took the light of the gospel to a nation that was spiritually in the dark. I know that Abby Sue and Ben were encouraged by St. Patrick's faith and so was I.
