22 doors

Many, if not most, get fascinated by doorways and doors and gates in Ireland.

Here are a few of the ones that captured us:

May the doorways to your soul be vibrant with color.

May they keep you safe and may they be an invitation to others.

May those that are long unopened be a place of peace where the vines grow with ease.

And may those that want to be opened anew do so by the warm light of the sun.

May those that need to remain closed, remain closed.

May those that are used every day swing with grace.

May the doorways to your soul lead you to your very self.

And may you know, all the while, of God’s deep, hope-filled love for you.

  1. Great series of photos guys! I remember doing this in Sante Fe years ago. Love doors/gates! Did you write the words following the photos? Very very nice.

  2. Thanks, Jess. Yes, we wrote the words. Mary Meighan taught us that these kinds of blessings are part of everything that is ever done in Celtic Spirituality. Seems very much like native american spirituality in that way . . . you know giving thanks for all things as the blessing of smoke is offered.
