A Scot Blessing

A Scot's Blessing:
 
May th' best ye've ever seen
Be the worst ye'll ever see
May the moose ne'er leave your girnal
With a tear drap in it's e'e.
May your lum keep blithely reekin'
'Til ye're auld enough to dee
And may ye aye be just as happy
As I wish ye now tae be.
 
 
"Translation"
 
 
 
May the best you've ever seen
Be the worst you'll ever see
May the mouse ne'er leave your pantry
With a teardrop in it's eye.
May your chimney keep blithely smoking
'Til your old enough to die
And may you always be as happy
As I wish you now to be.
 
 
This blessing was read at a beautiful wedding this past Saturday. The groom was of Scot heritage and wore a kilt. The favors were shortbread cookies, tea and honey. They were adorned with the family's clan crest which bears the words "Commit they work to God." This family, and the bride's as well, exemplify that.
 
I wish these two amazing young people a blessed marriage.
 
And I offer you the above blessing.
 
 
What is your favorite blessing?

  1. One of my favourites (unknown origin):
    May your home be filled with laughter and the warm embrace of a summer day.
    May you find peacefulness and beauty, challenge, and satisfaction, humor and insight, healing and renewal, love and wisdom, as in a quiet heart.
    May you always feel that what you have is enough.
