St. Patrick's Blessing

"May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace." - Numbers 6:24-26

I was looking over the calendar and adding some things to it when I noticed St. Patrick’s Day. The first thing that seems to come to mind for me, when I think of St. Patrick's Day, is the "Irish Blessing".

When I read this prayer or hear it read, I pause and hope that I would have one of those days where blessings were upon me, abundantly. I would also ponder how nice it would be if someone was praying those blessings on me at that very minute.

If you are not familiar with it, here are the words:

Prayer: 
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
