Happy St. Patrick's Day!






ay the road rise up to meet you

May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.
Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.
Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.


May you be in heaven half an hour
Before the Devil knows you're dead!

Hey Marti-
I'm very attached to the Irish blessing as it used to be my mom's favorite.
On her gravestone, I had "until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand"engraved.
It's such a wonderful and simple prayer.
Thanks for posting it.
Hope you had a great day.

ps. no word verification. YAy!!!!!
