World Travels Ireland Letter


The wind blew us away from the big city of Paris to this amazing view! We landed at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. The cliffs overlook the Atlantic Ocean. There were so many birds! The sea birds make their homes in the cliff face. Their high nests give them easy access to food in the sea and keep them safe from predators.

While we were in Ireland we heard about Saint Patrick. He was a Christian boy in England. When he was a teenager, he was taken from his home and family and brought to Ireland as a slave. While serving as a pig keeper, he gave hope to his fellow slaves by sharing about the love of God. One day he had a chance to escape and returned to England. He did not forget the people of Ireland though. Patrick went back, this time as a missionary, and shared the Love of Christ in Ireland for the rest of his life. It is an exciting story from the history of Ireland and Christianity. 

We loved hearing stories of Saint Patrick here in Ireland. Maybe the wind will be right and we can see where he grew up next month!

If you began your study in January, it is perfect timing to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day in March. What better time to learn more about a great missionary and Irish culture. You can find many green goodies to go along with your study. You can also use your flag stickers, Cardline card, and maps.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
