Happy St. Patricks Day!

~*~Happy St, Patrick's Day!~*~

Here are some photos I cut out of a magazine with Irish sayings on them,

and also some of Irish saying that I have saved to share just for you lucky people.


~*~


Deep peace of the running waves to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air
to you.

Deep peace of the smilimg stars to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth
to you.


Deep peace of the watching shepherds to you.
Deep peace of the son of peace
to you.
an old Irish prayr ~
~*~




~*~

Bless your house and any who
enter with this old Irish blessing.~


May there always be work for yourhands to do.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine on your window pane.

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near you.

May gold fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

~*~
May those who love , love us.

And those that don't love us.

May God turn there hearts:
And if he dosen't turn
their hearts.

May he turn their ankles.

So we'll know who
they are from their
limpimg.

an old Gaelic blessing ~

Thanks Janice. I left a greeting for all on granny.

Have I ever said how much I enjoy the way your blog is set up. You make even the prose look like poetry.

the 'may God turn their ankles' one is one of my favorites :o) blessings, and luck of the irish to you, lady J.

and i'm afraid you get no sympathy from me about your spring weather. we're still buried under 4 feet of snow here... oh, and, it's snowing again.

Hi G.F.,

It's mine too.

I'm sure winter will let go it's reluctant grip sooner or later. If not you know where to go to see a different season? Right here.

Your Lady Jan~
