A Celtic Prayer  May the road rise up to meet you, The wind be always at your back; May the sun shine warm upon your face; The rains fall softly where you tread; And until we meet again, May God hold you as in the hollow of a hand. Amen. Picture of Celtic Cross

What is this life, if full of care.
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep and cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to turn at beauty's glance
And watch her feet, how the dance.
No time to wait until her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.


Lord you are great and greatly to be praised!

awaken us to delight in your praises,

for you made us for yourself,

and our hearts are restless

‘till they find their rest in you.

Amen.

                           St.Augustine (354-430)
