It's my Baa-aa Er-erth Daaaaay

Ha! I am getting older! Found my 1st white hairs on my head a few weeks ago, I creak and pop when I move, I forget everything even sometimes my underwear, I am way slower than I was 5 years ago,  I think young people are stupid and their music sucks and is played WAY to loud, I actually enjoy listening to talk radio, sometimes I find I've left my blinker on for a few blocks, I don't call the 70's and 80's retro, and I need prunes when I never did before. (just joking about the last part!) Is this what it's all about??? I think I want a refund!  All this and I am only 43! Do you remember as a teen how 43 sounded sooooo incredibly old and hell at 60 you were picking out the color of the satin lining you wanted in your coffin? Well, ya know what - 43 ain't old and 60 sounds pretty spry as well!!  =)

Okay - well, it's time to go buy me a b-day present and cake! Happy St. Peggie's day everyone!!

St. Patty's Bear

Okay, here's my holiday bear I made. She's all dressed up for St. Peggie's Day.
Okay, now I must go and shower I have many things to do today =)  More later!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Although I am not Catholic, I find this prayer incredible. It's one day early, however it's a grand comfort. Plus I was born on St. Patrick's Day so that makes me honorary Irish, right?? 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Many who celebrate don’t have much of a clue about the first Christian missionary to Ireland who lived in 5th century.  I thought I would share with you a rather well-known prayer that is attributed to him – “The Shield of St. Patrick.”
I bind unto myself today the strong name of the trinity,
by invocation of the same, the Three in One, the One in Three.
I bind this day to me forever by power of faith Christ’s incarnation,
His baptism in the Jordan river, his death on the cross for my salvation;
His bursting from the spiced tomb, his riding up the heavenly way,
His coming at the day of doom I bind unto myself today.
I bind unto myself today the power of God to hold and lead,
His eye to watch, his might to stay, his ear to harken to my need,
The wisdom of my God to teach, his hand to guide, his shield to ward,
The Word of God to give me speech, his heavenly host to be my guard.
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me;
Christ to comfort and restore me;
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
I bind unto myself the name, the strong name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same, the Three in One, and One in Three,
Of whom all nature hath creation, eternal Father, Spirit, Word;
Praise to the God of my salvation, salvation is of Christ the Lord!
Jesus Christ is our rock, refuge and shield. Happy St. Peggie's Day - tee hee
