The vibrant shade of Kelly Green reminds me of festive St. Paddy’s Day celebrations.  I have opted to not go with roses for this particular cake.  I appreciate Irish Blessings and Prayers and feel that now would be a good opportunity to share a lovely Irish Prayer I have come across.

An Irish Prayer

May God give you…

For every storm, a rainbow,

For every tear, a smile,

For every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends,

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer to every prayer.
