I LOVED sharing Irish Blessing with my brothers at their weddings.
For Ryan and Nikki:
May the road rise to meet you and
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
May the laughter of children grace the halls of your
May the joy of living for one another
trip a smile on your lips and twinkle in your eye.
May the Spirit of Love find a dwelling place in your heart,
For the Foley home you are establishing today-
Lord, I pray that You would:
Bless the four corners of their house,
And be the lintel blest,
And bless the hearth,
And bless the board,
And bless each place of rest…
And bless the door that opens wide
To stranger as to kin,
And bless each crystal windowpane
That lets the starlight in.
And bless the roof- tree overhead,
And every sturdy wall-
The peace of man,
The peace of God,
The peace of love on all.
