I have been inspired! The other day I was reading through some Irish blessings and I got a “happi” feeling. Ok, I know that sounds cheesy but let me explain… 😉 Last week I posted some St Patrick’s Day facts and some pinch proof cards. I studied up on a holiday that was foreign to me yet celebrated in my own country. What I took away from it were some fun facts mixed in with a lot of fantasy and that to me was a perfect combination to get inspired! Hahah, yep. I love an opportunity to celebrate something and I also love to see people happy. So that is why I enjoyed these Irish Blessings so much! I’m going to share 3 prints I made up with a few of my favorites! First , Here are a few more I enjoyed.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.
May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
May you have love that never ends,
lots of money, and lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
and may God send many blessings to you!
I-rish you a very nice place to live,
I-rish God’s greatest gifts he’ll give.
I-rish you health, and wealth, and more–
I-rish your smilin’ face were at my door!
May God grant you always…
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all the year long.
May good luck be your friend
IN whatever you do.
And may trouble be always
A stranger to you.
May your troubles be less,
And your blessing be more.
And nothing but happiness,
Come through your door.
Lucky stars above you,
Sunshine on your way,
Many friends to love you,
Joy in work and play-
Laughter to outweigh each care,
In your heart a song-
And gladness waiting everywhere
All your whole life long!
May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.
May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.
Like the warmth of the sun
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish
shine bright on your way.
These things, I warmly wish for you-
Someone to love,
Some work to do,
A bit of o’ sun
A bit o’ cheer
And a guardian angel
May your home be filled with laughter
May your pockets be filled with gold
And may you have all the happiness
Your Irish heart can hold.
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!
May you be blessed with
warmth in your home,
love in your heart,
peace in your soul
and joy in your life
Now, here are some favorites in print. Enjoy!
I always thought the idea of pinching on St Patty’s Day was kind of a fun little thing but this year I decided to share well wishes instead of pinches! I hope you enjoy them. And happy St Patrick’s Day! To find out more about this fun little holiday check out my post HERE.
