Hello sweet November! With only a month to go until most of us get caught up in the festivities and cheer of the Christmas season, these Irish blessings, courtesy of www.beliefnet.com, are definitely worth sharing.
A Roof for the Rain
May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire.
Wind at Your Back
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Love that Never Ends
May you have love that never ends,
lots of money, and lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
and may God send many blessings to you!
Many Years to Live
May God grant you many years to live,
For sure he must be knowing.
The earth has angels all too few.
And heaven is overflowing.
May Troubles Ignore You
May the good saints protect you,
And bless you today.
And may troubles ignore you,
Each step of the way.
Four Greatest Blessings
May you enjoy the four greatest blessings:
Honest work to occupy you.
A hearty appetite to sustain you.
A good woman to love you.
And a wink from the God above.
Live a Long Life
May you live a long life, full of gladness and health, with a pocket full of gold as the least of you wealth.
May the dreams you hold dearest, be those which come true, the kindness you spread, keep returning to you.
