We had a good day. We shared a wonderful meal with friends and family. We have a safe, warm home, and we are all healthy. Much to be thankful for.
In our family, we always hold hands and say or sing grace before meals. The graces are very simple, and the kids always participate. These say it all:
For health and strength
And daily bread
We give our thanks, O Lord.
For flowers and bunnies
And birds that sing,
We thank you, God, for everything!
The sun, the moon, the earth, the rain,
And the work of many hands
Have brought us this food,
And we say, Thank you!
Oh, the Lord is good to me,
And so I thank the Lord,
For giving me the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the apple tree,
The Lord is good to me,
