charles french words reading and writing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
(Traditional Irish Blessing)
Stay safe, Jennie, dear – and yes! Enjoy the celebration of all things green today!
Thanks, Laura! You, too. 😀
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you as well. Here’s one for you. https://www.facebook.com/TheAmazing1/videos/210585852485502/UzpfSTYzMTg5NzI1MDoxMDE1NjcyNjc3NDU5NzI1MQ/
Thanks, Darlene. I loved this! 😀
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Ω
4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. Ω
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. Ω
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. Ω
Who He is
Fallen creation/human frailty
ΩHe keeps his promises

Very well said.
Thank you, Thom.
May you all be safe!
And you as well!
Stay well, Jennie!
You too, Deborah!
Thank you for the Irish blessing!
You are welcome, Liz. Thanks go to Charles. The words are not only kind and caring, they are just what we need to hear at this time.
Jennie, thank you so much!
Happy St Patrick’s Day, Jennie. Hope you had a good one.
Thanks, Marlene! Hope you could at least have something green around the house. 🙂
I always love this saying. I received a fantastic post on the real St. Patrick and some of the people who had contact with him in his lifetime, and the true things he did. It was well researched and very interesting. I think there is an age when these things can happen for us all, but I think when children are very young, it is good to let them believe in magic and in the fun things in life. Sometimes those all have their own symbolic meanings as we grow up that can help us with some larger issues, but children need to be children as long as they can. Thank you as always, Jennie and Charles too. That has always been one of my own personal favorites.
Don’t you think growing up with a little magic carries that into our adulthood? It’s a wonderful thing! Thank you, Anne! St. Patrick’s blessing is a favorite.
It sure is an essential part of growing up. We must never lose that sense of magic.
