On our wedding day my sister read an Irish Wedding Blessing that I thought only fitting to share with tomorrow being St. Patrick's Day. Part of the blessing hangs on a shamrock that I keep in our room.
Irish Wedding Blessing"May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.
May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase.
May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
May your hands be forever clasped in friendship and your hearts joined forever in love.
Your lives are very special, God has touched you in many ways.
May his blessings rest upon you, and fill all your coming days."
On my side of the family we are mostly Scottish and Irish (my sister is a redhead and so were two of my great grandmothers). Allan's family is German on his dad's side. We are always looking for interesting Irish, Scottish, and German traditions to incorporate into our family so if you have any we would love to hear them.
A blessing that we hope will hold true for ourselves and each of you:
"May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends."
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!
