Hump Day Prayer . . . Irish Blessing

May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine upon your window pane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near to you and
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
- traditional irish blessing

Great prayer today, Miranda - a practical friendly blessing.

I love the line

"May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain"

Along that theme, here are a couple of my favorites:

Irish Quote
When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to Heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven.

Irish Drinking Toast
May your glass be ever full,
May the roof over your head be always strong,
And may you be in heaven
Half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
