My heart grieves at what we've made some of our "holi" days (well, they all started out as pagan days anyway...bleh). Today, the kids and I are doing a lesson on St. Patrick, the missionary to Ireland. St. Patrick's Day is not just a day to drink beer, dress in green, and chase leprechauns. It's a day to honor a great man who brought the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Irish. Let us not hide the truth from our children or overlook that truth with cookies, candy, pinching, etc., but let us pray that more people could be missionaries for the Lord, spreading His gospel.
