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.

It’s nearly 5:00 in the evening, but it’s never too late to give thanks.
giving thanks #1061 – 1070
St. Patrick’s Day dinner
earrings passed to me years ago; I forgot I owned until this morning
19 of us feasting
Ladybug’s Irish Soda Bread
first asparagus of spring
gathering in the family room for dessert
the Spokane Orphan Summit
people who care so deeply for the fatherless
churches with orphan care ministries
the leprechaun who left gold coins on the front porch
Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Tell us about it.
