“Let us give thanks for this meal, saying, We thank you, Living God.
For this breath, for this heartbeat, for the gift of these companions, we thank you, Living God.
For this nourishment and flavor, for soil and sunlight, air and rainfall,
for all to whom this food connects us, from field to farm and store to table, we thank you, Living God.
As we share this meal together, may our thirst for peace be strengthened and our hunger for justice deepened,
until all are fed, and safe, and well.
We thank you, Living God. Amen.” (source)
much to be thankful for today.
These little ones.
Fresh dried beans from our CSA box this week.
Our wood stove to cook lunch and keep the house warm when the power is out.
Sunny dry days and safe places for my children to run and climb and play.
Lazy mornings together.
A new season approaching.
Still being able to make some coffee this morning, even after breaking our third french press this year.
And oh, so much more to be thankful for every day.
Wishing you a warm and restful thanksgiving.
