Four Leaf Clover

In Irish tradition the Shamrock or 3-leaf Clover represents the Holy Trinity: one leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. When a Shamrock is found with the fourth leaf, it represents God's Grace.

How many times have you found a four leaf clover? Have you ever looked down and just seen one right there, sitting in a patch of clover?
No matter how many times I find one I always pick it and save it. One can never have too much luck…

I found a site that tells you how to find a four leaf clover. I never knew there was a method to this.

I also found out a little bit of information about these lucky clovers that I didn’t know.
Do you know what each leaf stands for?

One leaf is for FAITH...     The second for HOPE...

The third for LOVE...         And the fourth for LUCK!

Since where I live it is still rather chilly and the clover has not had a chance to sprout up yet, I did a little searching for four leaf clovers online… and I found a bunch of all different kinds.







         Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I too always pick a four leaf clover if I see one. I never knew what the three or four leaf clovers meant though.

Thanks for the information and the interesting shops. Great post jj.
