St. Patrick's Day

An Irish Bank Robber

It's Saint Patrick's day and an armed hooded robber bursts into the Bank of Ireland and forces the tellers to load a sack full of cash. On his way out the door with the loot one brave Irish customer grabs the hood and pulls it off revealing the robber's face.

The Robber Shoots the Guy Without Hesitation!
He then looks around the bank to see if anyone else has seen him. One of the tellers is looking straight at him and the robber walks over and calmly shoots him also.
Everyone by now is very scared and looking down at the floor.
Did anyone else see my face?' screams the robber.
There are a few moments of silence then one elderly Irish gent, looking down, tentatively raises his hand and says, "I think me wife may have caught a glimpse."

Saint Patrick's day history.

Like many things the world has embraced a holy day and turned it into a pagan celebration. Saint Patrick's day history is summed up in this short paragraph.
Patrick spread the Word of God across Ireland after he was kidnapped by pirates at age fourteen and sold as a slave to be a shepherd. He later escaped back to his homeland of England where a few years later was given a vision from God to study for the priesthood, and then go back to Ireland. Through all his sufferings his faith in the Lord was tested and proved.
Patrick went on to preach the Gospel all across Ireland (famously using the shamrock as an analogy for the Trinity).
He would build churches there to the glory of God. The quote in this devotional is from his poem of trust in God called

"The Breastplate". An Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

And rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

much love, Dennis

political fun

A man was walking in the woods and came to a cottage where the walls were covered with clocks. He asked the woman who owned the cottage what all the clocks were for.

She replied that everyone in the world had a clock, and every time you told a lie your clock advanced a second.
He saw a clock that was hardly moving and when he remarked about it he was told that it was Mother Teresa's.
He then asked where Hillary Clinton's clock was.
The woman replied, "It's in the kitchen, we're using it as a ceiling fan." this is of course a joke. We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory. However we have a savior who  has paid the price for all of our sins.

I watched this entire movie last night. It was motivational to say the least. This is a true story with very little editing. The main character is two years older than me. I never knew how much of a charmed life I lead in my youth. To God may all the glory be given. Forgive me Lord, for I have sinned.
much love, Dennis
