An Irish Blessing

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.

Thanks to my friend Cathy who shared this beautiful Celtic blessing yesterday in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day.

  1. Thanks for sharing that Kim! That is one of my favorite versions of the ‘Irish Blessing.’ I love the Winslow Holmer painting too. Interestingly, there are a number of different versions. I found one today that speaks to our ocean setting –

    May your joys be as deep as the ocean,
    Your troubles as light as its foam.
    And may you find sweet peace of mind,
    Wherever you may roam.
