Take an Irish Blessing With You!

This was the title of a workshop I taught recently. My idea was to put some Irish sayings and blessings on bookmarks--something you could take with you when you're out and about. If you're crafty (more crafty hopefully than I am) you might want to create your own bookmarks with a few of these.



May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Cranfield Church, Northern Ireland @CindyThomson


For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Ballintoy, Northern Ireland @CindyThomson

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

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.

Sligo town @CindyThomson


May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Silent Valley, Northern Ireland @CindyThomson


May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
~
Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire -
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire!

Hosts' cat, Brookvale Cottage, County Down, Northern Ireland @CindyThomson


May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.
And find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness and riches.
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

Londonderry/Derry @CindyThomson

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