Not to be uttered in the presence of a priest!! Others: .... If God spares me, I'll be seventy next April. I am as God made me . As God made them, He matched them. . And the corollary .... God made them but the devil matched them! . God mend it. 'We'll never see the face of God!' God never closed one door but he opened another . DEATHS: God be good to him. . May heaven be his bed. Lord have mercy on him. 'God made man, man made sin And God made the hole To shove the devil in!' God spare you your health and give you long days. God's good, but the divil's not bad either! . God's Horse: a term given to a particularly large, hairy, dark caterpillar that was common in days gone by, and was avoided as it brought 'bad luck'.
