Shamrocks and beer? There's more to the story of Saint Patrick.

What comes to mind when you think of St. Patrick's Day? I tend to think of shamrocks and beer. But there's more to the story of Saint Patrick and why we celebrate a day in honor of him.

Saint Patrick was 16 years old when he was taken captive and became a shepherd out away from the people. During his hard time in captivity, he came to know God and wanted to share his knowledge of Him with other people!

When Saint Patrick was sharing the gospel (the good news of Jesus giving his life to eternally save our souls) with people in Ireland, he would use the three leaf shamrock/young clover to explain the trinity of God. The first leaf represented God the Father, the second leaf God the Son, and the third leaf God the Holy Spirit. Three separate parts that all work together as one beautiful living being!

From now on, when I see the beautiful clover in our meadows, it will remind me of God's faithfulness and perfection of three in one!
