An Irish Blessing . . .

An Old Irish Blessing

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

I sang this 'Irish Blessing' at the end of a friend's wedding many years ago.

Hope your St. Patrick's Day is full of spring sunshine & warm weather!
