We painted our vision of Brendan's journey in watercolors.....
......enjoyed cocoa crispy treat boats.....
....and went on a scavenger hunt to locate all the things Brendan saw on his voyage, feathers from the Paradise of Birds, "ice" crystals from the Pillar of Crystal, wool from the Isle of Sheep, and lava rocks from the Island of the Smiths.
I don't know about you all, but it has been a long exhausting trip for us, and we are glad to arrive safely in "Tirnanog" (and unlike Brendan, we get to stay :), and we are so glad you came along!
Hopefully plans will be posted in the next week or so, for any of you who wish to share our journey with your children. Until then, we say farewell to our Celtic saints who have taught us so much.
"Behold, the Lord will pass by, and before the Lord, a great and powerful wind will be rending the mountains and shattering the rocks; but the Lord will not be in the wind. After the wind, an earthquake, but the Lord will not be in the earthquake. After the earthquake, there will be a fire, but the Lord will not be in the fire. After the fire, there will be a sound of a gentle breeze, and the Lord will be there."
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she may help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:40-42
