May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be 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 palm of His hand.

Irish wisdom. May true be the hearts that love you. Image copyright Ireland Calling

* * *
May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in your heart!

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill
All the way to your door.
* * *

Irish wisdom. Spread luck along your way. Image copyright Ireland Calling

* * *
May the embers from the open hearth warm your hands,
May the sun’s rays from the Irish sky warm your face,
May the children’s bright smiles warm your heart,
May the everlasting love I give you warm your soul.
* * *

Irish wisdom. May good luck be your friend. Image copyright Ireland Calling

* * *
May the friendships you make,
Be those which endure,
And all of your grey clouds
Be small ones for sure.
And trusting in Him
To Whom we all pray,
May a song fill your heart,
Every step of the way.
