Today I get to do the invocation for our Rotary Club. Since I did an extemporaneous one two weeks ago, it was time for a more formal one. So I did what any good Gen Xer would do, I googled for other people’s invocations.
Happily, I stumbled across some Irish blessings and toasts. Irish blessings often brighten my day and with all the rain we’ve been getting, those of us in Maine need brighter days!
Here’s one that made me laugh out loud at my desk:
May those that love us, love us.
And those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we’ll know them by their limping.

And, if I see you limping, I’ll know why. 🙂
