An Old Irish Curse

January 24th, 2006

“May those that love us love us; and those that don’t love us, may God turn their hearts; if He can’t turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles, so we’ll know them by their limping.”

~an Irish witticism I came across this week

    I’m commenting on my own blog. Lest this post be taken the wrong way, let me just say that I’m not trying to curse anyone. I do know people that do not love me, and I hope that God does turn their hearts. I am not wishing for evil to come upon them, however. I found this saying in a magazine and found it cute and clever. I just wanted to share it!

    I prefer my own ending: “may He turn their ankles, so we may laugh with ecstasy at them while they writhe in agony!!!” And besides, King David prayed for God to bestow wrath on his enemies, why can’t we?
