Sent off the March “Love Package” to our “A wee bit Irish Grandson.”
So are SAYING “HELLO” IN IRISH to him via this post.
— Dia dhuit (pronounced, very roughly, JEE-uh ggwitch) —
is a very basic, formal, way of saying “hello” in Irish Gaelic.
It is addressed to one person, and it literally means “God to you.” We love that!
Call to Glory for kids is such a wonderful tool to help our grandson get into the habit of a daily devotional time with God. So often our days get so busy (even as adults), it is easy to neglect this most important part of our day. We know he so enjoys reading this and doing the puzzles, and applying Biblical principles to his life. His mom is great at helping him set aside time to be in the life-changing Word of God.
And we tucked in some St. Patrick’s Day pencils, a pair of sparkly glasses
and a bag of green pistachios.
His St. Patrick’s Day Card I made on my Silhouette Cameo with Jamie Cripps design #55673. Card stock from JoAnns.
The “wee bit of green” monetary gift is from Grandpa’s wallet. The FREE “You are so loved” digi stamp is from Kimber Dawn & Co., and you can find it here. This is such a wonderful site to find SVG cutting files available in SVG, Studio 3, and PNG. They usually have a Freebie every Friday. Check it out.
We loaded this little box full of sweets (trying to avoid too much chocolate.) The box is from the Silhouette store design #102370. I did not choose to use the window cut out. The shamrock and “kiss me”label were a freebie from here. The Elli Blog has lots of fabulous freebies here. “I’m a wee bit Irish” was the result of a google search.
Praying that God will hold our precious grandson in the palm of His
Hand until we see each other again. Love that boy!
Bíodh lá maith agat!
Have a nice day!
