 But ... but ... but ...
 You forgot *my* favorite Irish blessing!
 "May the wind at your back never be your own ..."
  Hah!  YOU forgot MY favorites...

1. May you be in Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead...

2.  May the road rise to greet you, 
     And the wind be ever at your back;
     May the sun shine warm upon your face
     And the rain fall gentle on your land, 
     And until we meet again
     May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
      (Oops, just read this one in an earlier message... the pitfalls of
reverse-order Email retrieval...Will leave it in, it's my favorite too, along
with #4.)

3. May your neighbors respect you,
    Trouble neglect you, 
    The angels protect you
     And Heaven accept you.

4. From the Sarum Primer, 1558: Anonymous.

God be in my hede
And in my understandyng,
God be in myne eyes
And in my lokyng,
God be in my mouth 
And in my speakyng,
God be in my harte
And in my thinkyng,
God be at myne end
And in my departyng.

5. "Whatsoever thing are true"

Whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

 From the Epistle of Paul to the Phillipians, IV:8
