Reflection:

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.

May the light of friendship guide your path

May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home.

May the joy of living trip a smile from your lips,

A twinkle from your eye

And when eternity beacons

At the end of a life heaped high with love,

May the good Lord embrace you

With the arms that have nurtured you

The whole length of your joy-filled days.

May the gracious God hold you in the palm of his hand.

And may the Spirit of Love

Find a dwelling in your hearts.
