Irish blessings

All the priests had a meeting in Bend, and that is the reason why there was no post yesterday on my blog. But here we go again, after a long trip, encountering all kinds of weather, animals and especially two bald eagles perched on the same tree. 

The angle for my viewpoint was not very favorable, but this is the best photo I could get of  them together. The did not fly away this time, and certainly there was something edible and appetizing that kept them there. Undoubtedly the bald priest did not bother the two bald eagles this time, and they graciously tolerated him.

As the world turns green over the next 2 days, celebrating the feast of St. Patrick, here are some Irish blessings which should cheer you up.
May the embers from the open hearth warm your hands,
May the sun's rays from the Irish sky warm your face,
May the children's bright smiles warm your heart,
May the everlasting love I give you warm your soul.
May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May the friendships you make, be those which endure,
And all of your grey clouds be small ones for sure.
And trusting in Him to Whom we all pray,
May a song fill your heart, every step of the way.
