Once again Daddy took some of the babies to the Theater. This time the little girls to see Winnie the Pooh. Per tradition they get to have a fancy supper before the show. Phil doesn’t like telling me where he takes the kids because, well, I’m home eating hot dogs while he’s eating glorious things like Dragon Fries.

St. Patrick’s Day Things

Our St. Patrick’s Day “weekend”┬ábegan on Friday, cuz why should you only celebrate St. Patrick one day a year?

From Patrick’s BreastPlate:

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

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 shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near.

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 when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of creation.
