Yet Another Blessing

An Irish Blessing

YET ANOTHER BLESSING

 May the Good Lord always

remember your name,

and may He prepare for you,

 a grand place.

 *

  And may you remember,

to afford Him the same,

and daily request,

 He not race.

    Ha, sometimes I wish he would race, but at others I would like him to dawdle… 🙂

    • That is indeed a conundrum isn’t it.. We are promised a paradise after this life, and yet we hang on tooth and nail to it. What is known to be, we consider the safer alternative, I think it may be a test of our faith in God, when we are ready to go, we will let go. At least I hope that is the way it works.. God bless and help us all on our journey. Thanks as always for your thoughts Denise, be well. Jake.
