Chaplain Margaret Grun Kibben

On this St. Patrick's Day:

May our worries be slight and our troubles few.
May we always choose right in whatever we do.
Then, O God, may You give us for every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing for each trial;
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Sure of Your grace and love this day and always, in Your sacred and most holy name we pray.  Amen.
