oh, yeah! i have a blog….
I know it’s 2 days late and I made a video about it, but i’m not through with St. Patrick’s Day yet. That day I watched Good Morning America as usual. Diane Sawyer brought up the fact that Obama is Irish. As if she could hear chuckling across the country, she said something like, “No really. Through his mother’s lineage…” That’s kinda how I always felt as a kid. Like, I know everyone’s a little Irish today, but I’m REALLY Irish everyday. You just don’t see it.
Also, I really love St. Patrick’s prayer. I used to say it every morning. Not when I was a kid, but like 4 or 5 years ago. Here it is…
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 mulitude.
Christ shield me today
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.
That’s the part I used to say anyway. There’s more depending on the version you’re reading.
