May The Road Rise Up To Meet You

A dear friend painstakingly cross-stitched this timeless Irish blessing for me several years ago.
I grew up hearing this prayer and seeing it grace the walls of many homes.
It's words have always been a favorite of mine, encouraging peace and good fortune into one's life.
From my little corner of the world.....to yours.

Just beautiful, Jo. I've always loved this blessing, too. I have a kit for this cross-stitch that I got years ago; I really need to sit down and do it. It would be so pretty on our wall!

Thanks for sharing and have a good week!

Big hugs,


Jo said...

Beautiful blessing. My husband and I are two of the few English-speaking South Africans in our part of the world who know this prayer. Thanks for sharing. Greetings, Jo

I love doing cross stitch and that is a beautifully done one. That's a special friend...and a special blessing!

I've heard the beginning of this but never heard the whole thing. Thank you, just lovely!

A simply exquisite rendering of one of my favorite blessings.

I do not speak much when I drop in, but I do delve and drench and drown in your comforting prose and wonderful photos. You've taken both your "homes" and made a sublime amalgam of the lush and green and flowered and welcoming and old thatched and secret gardens and far vistas of the best of both.

I enter smiling in anticipation and leave content.

It is a wonderful piece. My wife has a mug with just the first verses on it.
