Suddenly Sunday... St. Patrick's Day Edition!!!

A very happy St. Patrick's Day to you all! It's been a very fun St. Patrick's day so far with the leprechauns leaving gold dust all over the house and eating all of our cornbread, having a green themed breakfast, and preparing the corned beef and cabbage for dinner; all that's left to do is start drinking the Irish beer! In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I am sharing a few Irish blessings that have stayed with me through the years. 

An Irish Prayer 
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

From Saint Patrick's Breastplate 
Christ be with me
Christ before me
Christ behind me
Christ in me
Christ beneath me
Christ above me
Christ on my right
Christ on my left
Christ where I lie
Christ where I sit
Christ where I arise
Christ in the heart of every man
who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks of me
Christ in every eye that sees me
Christ in every ear that hears me.

An Old Irish Blessing 
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!

To continue the celebration, here is an Irish themed international giveaway:

Have a wonderful day and happy reading!
