The Wife of an Irishman's Blessing

We are wearin' the green today. Well, maybe it's more of a blue, but it makes me think of William Wallace, and his Irish neighbors, fighting for freedom. We may not have political tyranny to fight, but so many people have fears and the lack of freedom that results. I am re-reading an excellent book by Beth Moore titled Breaking Free, so I guess that's why my light St. Patrick's Day post turned serious for a moment.

I look outside at bright sun and sky.
I see fast moving clouds going by,
and I think, no, I pray,
LORD, give me the heart of a child
to see your world free and wild.
My face is to the wind today.
I lift my arms and dream I can fly.

There, I wrote a poem for you, just like that on this wild March afternoon. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, and if the wind is not always at your back, may you dream you can fly.

Lovely poem, thanks for sharing. And I'm totally digging G's William Wallace Smurf look. :) I love that movie- BTW. Ironically my husband would rather watch a romantic comedy. Go figure.

We just watched Ghost Town last night. If you are looking for a good romantic comedy, that's a winner.
Thanks for the comments.
