May there always be work for your hands to do.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

 May the sun always shine on your window pane.

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near you.

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.


May the God of Peace be with you,

taking away your fears and doubts,

and may the mantle of your Peace

cover those who are troubled and anxious.

May the blessing of Peace be upon you.


May God give you… For every storm, a rainbow,for every tear, a smile,

For every care, a promise, and a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer.


May the road rise up to meet you.

 May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home.

May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam.

May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures.

May all life’s passing seasons bring the best to you and yours!

May there always be work for your hands to do.
