15 House Blessings for Peace, Love & Happiness at Home

1. “May your troubles be less and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door.” – Irish Blessing

2. “May this home be a place of happiness and health; of contentment, generosity and home; a home of creativity and kindness. May those who visit and those who live here know only blessing and peace.” – Unknown

3. “May all who enter do so with a happy heart. May all who live here be showered with love and sheltered by hope, graced each day with a grateful spirit. And through life’s trials, may each heart keep its compassion, comforted by the peace kept within these walls.” – Jennifer Williamson

4. “May this home be blessed with the laughter of children, the warmth of a close family, hope for the future and fond memories of the past.” – Unknown

“Home is where the heart is.” – Pliny the Elder

5. “May you be blessed with warmth in your home, love in your heart, peace in your soul and joy in your life.” – Irish Blessing

6. “In our home let love abide and bless all those who step inside.” – Unknown

7. “May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter, and every window open to great possibility.” – Mary Anne

8. “Namaste: I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.” – A translation of the ancient Hindu salutation

“Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing.” – Donna Hedges

9. “May this home be a resting place for the soul, offering always a tender hand to hold, forever filled with love even after our bodies grow old.” – Jennifer Williamson

10. “May you always be blessed with walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all that your heart might desire.” – Irish Blessing

11. “May this home be blessed. May good fortune follow those who pass through this door. May this floor lighten the steps of all who tread upon its surface and also provide a stable place to stand. May these walls soak in the rich sounds of laughter and loving, and offer protection from the fiercest winds. May this roof hold strong and these roots sink deep. This is home: A place of safety and joy, a place to rest and create, a place for me.” – Unknown

12. “Bread, that this house may never know hunger. Salt, that life may always have flavor. And wine, that joy and prosperity may reign forever.” – It’s a Wonderful Life

“Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

13. “May your days be many and your troubles be few. May all God’s blessings descend upon you. May peace be within you; may your heart be strong. May you find what you’re seeking wherever you roam.” – Irish Blessing

14. “May this home be where you come back to feel alive, not a place to store your worries but a place to let joy thrive. May any darkness be graced with light and may you find comfort and rest each night. May this home be more than a collection of rooms; may this be a space to let love bloom.” – Jennifer Williamson

15. “May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam. May peace and plenty bless your world, with joy that long endures. May all life’s passing seasons bring the best to you and yours.” – Irish Blessing

    I was born in Ireland. Number 15 is my favorite. I love it. Is it available in a frame. I want it for a couple that just purchased a new home.

    I love so many of these. A neighbor dropped this one in our mailbox when we first moved in 30 years ago. Do you know its origins (says author unknown)?:

    Measureless the starry heights,
    Measureless the depths of earth,
    and about us everywhere
    Light receiving, warmed by wonder,
    Spirits weave man’s destiny
    May the shelter of this house
    Be a place of wakening
    Peace within us, Peace among us
    May nothing evil cross this door and may
    ill-fortune never pry about these windows
    May the roar and rains go by
    Strengthened by faith, these rafters will
    withstand the battering of the storm
    This hearth, though all the world grow dull, will keep us warm.
    Peace shall walk softly through these rooms,
    Touching our lips with holy wine
    while every casual corner blooms into a shrine.
    Laughter shall drown the raucous shout
    and though these sheltering walls are thin,
    May they
    Strong to Keep
    Hate out and Hold
    Love in

    My fav is #14 (yours)! On my way to a house blessing today (friend moved due to abuse). I googled “house blessings” And feel that LOVE-G-d-divine order-(whatever you call the holy) Led me here😁. I am a songwriter, so, with your permission, I will put your words to music?

    I would also like to gift you —and anyone who reads THIS – a free link to my song HOME (is where your heart is). (Share my email if this feels right). Thank you so very much Jennifer. Have a blessed day.

    I loved #2 because a home with humanity and generosity is a divine place to live in. The World needs such many many homes to spread love and humanity.
    All other thoughts are also really good.

    I love the Irish ones, especially 1 and 15. Possibly because of my Irish roots. Thanks, Jen for all.
