IRISH BLESSINGS

My grandparents on my father's side came from Ireland, so I have always felt a connection to Irish music and culture. Included in that is an appreciation of Irish Blessings. I am including 3 of my favorites that can be paired with some of the flower images.
*******
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

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

May God grant you always......
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you,
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
