Gifts of Guinness

In college, Carter practiced a friendly "prank" (as he so calls it) on the eve of St. Patrick's day.  This little tradition of leaving a Guinness on strangers' front steps has seeped its way into our marriage, and I'm so glad it did!

This year we made a whole fun night of it!

After reading St. Patrick's Confessions, (a very beautiful work and a quick read) we chose this quote to accompany the beer:

This is how we can repay such blessings, when our lives change and we come to know God, to praise and bear witness to His great wonders before every nation under Heaven.  ~ St. Patrick

Husband's hands. 

Finished product!

Before embarking on our mission we prayed the Office of Readings for St. Patrick's Feast and blessed the beer (!!!) with this blessing!  Our favorite line was "Bless..this creature beer"! 

Carter and I dressed in all black with green sashes and Felicity, the reverse! 

We got all ten beers delivered without getting caught...hopefully it was a nice surprise for those who received them!

Wee little lass. 

St. Patrick, pray for us!
