|March 17, 1969 -
It was St. Patrick's Day then, too!

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/17/15:
|“My promise to you
who pray and serve the Lord cannot be that you will have every blessing
you may wish for yourself and your family. But I can promise you that
the Savior will draw close to you and bless you and your family with
what is best. You will have the comfort of His love and feel the answer
of His drawing closer as you reach out your arms in giving service to
others. As you bind up the wounds of those in need and offer the
cleansing of His Atonement to those who sorrow in sin, the Lord’s power
will sustain you. His arms are outstretched with yours to succor and
bless the children of our Heavenly Father, including those in your
-Henry B. Eyring
(b. 31 May 1933)
|Thank you, Joan!|
From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 03/17/19, @ 6:30 AM - "A BLESSED SUNDAY AND TOP OF THE IRISH TO YOU THIS LORD'S DAY":
Well, here we are about to witness another
dawn on Sunday, the Lord's Day and this year also St. Patrick's
Day. I imagine there will be a lot of green in church this
morning. And even though I am of a Scottish background and
sometimes the Irish and Scots don't hit it off, I don't have any
problems because I know what it's caused by--we are both
stubborn and probably too much alike. But take some time to talk
with your Maker this morning and it's all the better if you can
see Him in His House. The important thing, however, is to just
tell Him how much you appreciate Him and love Him, for He has
given us everything we are and have. And yes, it's okay later in
the day to hoist a cheer to good old St. Patty, just do so with
class and grace and realize just how fortunate we are to live in
a land where we can have so many different occasions to
celebrate. Have a blessed day.
Thank you, Jimmy! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, too!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/25/19 - "Beautiful Rainbows Of Ireland & Other Irish Themed Things" (#14 in a Series of 19):
"Seeing a rainbow at any time,
either in your waking life or in your dream world is always a wonderful
thing. And it means the same thing in both places. A rainbow is a
universal symbol of hope, luck, fortune, and wishes coming true."
OOH! Thank you, Shari!
