The Prayer of St. Patrick

I know this is late for St. Patrick's Day, but I wanted to share it, anyways, because I love it!

I arise today

Through the strength of heaven;

Light of the sun,

Splendor of fire,

Speed of lightning,

Swiftness of the wind,

Depth of the sea,

Stability of the earth,

Firmness of the rock.

I arise today

Through God's strength to pilot me;

God's might to uphold me,

God's wisdom to guide me,

God's eye to look before me,

God's ear to hear me,

God's word to speak for me,

God's hand to guard me,

God's way to lie before me,

God's shield to protect me,

God's hosts to save me

Afar and anear,

Alone or in a multitude.

Christ shield me today

Against wounding

Christ with me,

Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ in me,

Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ on my right,

Christ on my left,

Christ when I lie down,

Christ when I sit down,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in the eye that sees me,

Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today

Through the mighty strength

Of the Lord of creation

And I love you!

Signs of Spring

It's a sure sign of spring when you spend hours brushing two horses. Two very muddy crusted, itchy, happy horses. Loved every second of it, though. Welcome spring!!

Humanity Blessed Me Today

A local news reporter, Trish VanPilsum, has a wonderful blog about life. Her blog site is here:

Because I made a comment on one of her postings, I won these beautiful booties! Aren't they the cutest? I'm paying it foward and gifting them to a colleague who is expecting her first grandchild ... it's a girl ;) Go to my "Shop" page to find out where you can get yours!!

And today I learned that another local news reporter, Darcy Pohland, passed away. While I was watching a tribute, I witnessed these two news casters show their emotion to losing their colleague and friend.
Today I saw humanity - the joys and sorrows of being connected. I pray for those that have lost loved ones and I pray for those that getting ready to welcome loved ones into the world!

With much love and blessings ~ Tracey
