A Memorable St. Patrick's Day

Thirty-six years ago our family moved into a home in Lakewood, Colorado. Situated on Green Mountain, it was a comfortable ranch-style house with a partly finished basement. Two months later, an underground stream poured into the basement, and after futile attempts to stop the flooding, we abandoned the house in August and settled temporarily into a small apartment in a church building.

We took a big financial loss but gained a deeper appreciation of the truth that material things are temporary but spiritual things are eternal.

Revelers on St. Patrick’s Day may be oblivious to the fact that St. Patrick was a missionary. His priorities were in good order. He placed what is eternal on a much higher level than what is temporal. Perhaps this is a good day to remember what really counts in this life.
