Quotable Sunday St. Patrick's Day Version

Irish Sayings and Blessing is the topic for today's Quotable Sunday In honor of St. Patrick's Day (a little early) I present a few Irish sayings and Blessings.

"May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you
."

"May you have the hindsight to know where you've been
the foresight to know where you're going
and the insight to know when you're going too far
."

"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
."

"May the good saints protect you,
And bless you today.
And may troubles ignore you,
Each step of the way
."

"May the saint protect ye-
An' sorrow neglect ye,
An' bad luck to the one
That doesn't respect ye
t' all that belong to ye,
An long life t' yer honor-
That's the end of my song t' ye
!"

"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
."

This one is a very old Irish blessing, but it also was a favorite song that we sang in high school treble choir:

"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."

My granny used to say some of those quotes! She was Scottish though, but loved her Irish friends. Aww how I miss her. These are beautiful and bring such wonderful memories back!
