Peaceful

A Scottish Blessing


May the blessing of light be on you - Light without and light within. May the blessed sunlight shine on you like a great peat fire, so that stranger and friend may come and warm himself at it. And may light shine out of the two eyes of you, like a candle set in the window of a house, bidding the wanderer come in out of the storm.


May the blessing of the rain be on you, may it beat upon your Spirit and wash it fair and clean, And leave there a shining pool where the blue of Heaven shines, and sometimes a star.
May the blessing of the earth be on you, soft under your feet as you pass along the roads, soft under you as you lie out on it, tired at the end of day.......


I found this little blessing and thought I'd share it with you.

The photo was taken at my dear friend Wave's house. Her home is filled with amazing Scottish touches... Shhh...we have a secret. Her home will be shared with all in the winter time....

That is all I can say for now.

Blessings to all...

Becky

Oh, that we could each watch and listen for the other person's storms and respond with Jesus' love and compassion...may we all value each other as His special creations!

What a sweet blessing, Becky. I read it and then had to read it again slowly. Thank you!

I forget that you play the bagpipes some. When will we see a video? And do you have your own kilt? Does Doogs?

Hope you have a fabulously blessed weekend.

Hugs,
Lallee

It seems like there are a lot of troubles in blogland, so a blessing is so appropriate. We just need to remember...blessings.

That was a really sweet blessing Becky. I love the picture of the bagpipes. Put a little holly with it and it would make a beautiful Christmas card.

Oooh...I am so bad at waiting to hear secrets! : )

Does Doogs have his own kilt to wear? I think he would look so very handsome in it!

I so love the music made by the bagpipes...
