Bless This Food

Giving thanks before meals is the most common form of spiritual nourishment.

Continued from page 3

A favorite of mine was one my son came up with when he had to say grace because he had started eating without saying grace first: Forgive me Lord, I'm a little late. Bless the food that I just ate!

Short But Sweet

Bless this bunch. Bless this lunch.

"Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub. Yeah, God!"

For health and food and love of friends, For everything the good Lord sends. Father, we thank thee.

I think my personal favorite is: God's neat, lets eat!

I learned this one in college...a feisty old nun taught it to a whole bunch of college kids... "Good food, Good meat, Good God, Let's eat." During the Fridays in Lent the prayer was changed..."Good food, No meat, Good God, Let's eat."

Being the clown of the family, I had a favorite of my own: Dear God, Holy Ghost, whoever eats the fastest, gets the most! My parents didn't appreciate it, of course.

Not by Bread Alone

Back in Girl Scout days we sang the "Johnny Appleseed blessing" taken from the American folktale: 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 seed. The Lord is good to me.
