Our Dinner Time Blessing

A few weeks ago I shared our dinner time rhythm and since then have had a few requests for the blessing we use, so today I will share it with you.
Earth we thank you for our food,
For rest and home and all things good,
For wind and rain and sun above,
But most of all for those we love.
I found this verse in the summer, can’t quite remember where, and it really spoke to my heart and soul. Since then, it has been the beginning of all of our meals.  Reece refers to it as “our story” and looks forward to hearing it.

This blessing gives us a chance to give thanks for the many things in our life we are grateful for and also allows as a moment to breath and slow down before we begin our meal.
How do you express your gratitude before your meals?
