White Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit
Do you know the tradition of saying, "White rabbit, white rabbit, white rabbit," when you wake on the 1st day of the month? It is said to bring good luck for the month. Superstitions are not something I normally believe in, but I do find this tradition charming! So on Rabbit day (the first day of the month), I thought I'd not only "say" but show you three white rabbits!
I've been making more Dotee Dolls. These were lots of fun to create using a Shabby Chic theme!
St. Patrick's Day is coming up and while I don't usually do much decorating for it, I 've been having fun doing some St. Patrick's day crafting. These are the altered tags I made for a swap at Karla's Cottage!
While I don't believe in superstitious practices, I do believe in the power of prayer. This prayer of St. Patrick seems to me to be a wonderful prayer to begin not only each month, but each day.
As I arise today, may the strength of God pilot me,
the power of God uphold me,
the wisdom of God guide me.
May the eye of God look before me,
the ear of God hear me,
the Word of God speak for me.
May the hand of God protect me,
the way of God lie before me,
the shield of God defend me,
the host of God save me.
May Christ shield me today...
Christ with me, Chirst before me,
Christ behind me, Christ in me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit,
Christ when I stand,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
