May the Wind be at Your Back

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.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

The blessing was very long, but so wonderful that, here on Leisure Lane, I will be posting another verse with each future post.  I hope you glean some wonderful benefits from it.

Have a Happy Day with a Pot O’ Gold on Top!

    Thanks for the St. Patrick’s Day blessing, Marianne! I feel God smiling on me these days and it was with a thankful heart that I sent my daughter and son-in-law back to Raleigh today. We had a good visit and we’re praying his interviews will result in a job offer so they can move back to Buffalo. Thanks for visiting me at Cottage and Creek. You are a dear.

    I enjoyed visiting with you today at my garage sale. We have a definite connection. This is the same background that I used on wordpress. I will enjoy following you.
