Wink Some Irish Blessings !!!!

Like the warmth of the sun
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish
shine bright on your way.
--------------------------------------

May your pockets be heavy-
Your heart be light
And may good luck pursue you
Each morning and night
--------------------------------------

May the good saints protect you
And bless you today
And may troubles ignore you
Each step of the way
---------------------------------------
( I like this one especially !!!!!! )

Grant me a sense of humor, Lord,
the saving grace to see a joke,
To win some happiness from life,
And pass it on to other folks.
---------------------------------------

May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now
And bless you evermore.
---------------------------------------

May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus too,
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.
---------------------------------------

These things, I warmly wish for you-
Someone to love,
Some work to do,
A bit of o’ sun
A bit o’ cheer
And a guardian angel
Always near.
----------------------------------------

Hills as green as emeralds
Cover the countryside
Lakes as blue as sapphires-
And Ireland’s special pride
And rivers that shine like silver
Make Ireland look so fair-
But the friendliness of her people
Is the richest treasure there.
----------------------------------------

Deep peace of the running waves to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the smiling stars to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the watching shepherds to you.
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you
AN OLD GAELIC PRAYER
---------------------------------------

May good luck be your friend
In whatever you do
And may trouble be always
A stranger to you.
----------------------------------------

May your home be filled with laughter
May your pockets be filled with gold
And may you have all the happiness
Your Irish heart can hold.
----------------------------------------

May your blessings outnumber
The Shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Joe
