I'm not sure if I have put this in the right place!
As of late my family and I have been saying a short meal blessing before we eat dinner. Nothing formal usually, the kids insist on doing it and will say something like "thankyou for this meal".
Does anyone else do this? If so, what are your favourite blessings/verses?
I did a google search and came across a few good ones. Actually thinking of writing my own one though. These are my favourites:
This food comes from the earth and the sky
It is the gift of the entire universe
And the fruit of much hard work
I vow to live a life that is worthy to receive it
(This ones a Bhuddist blessing)
Lady and Lord,
Thank you for this food which we’re going to eat
Thank you for the earth in which it grew,
the rain that watered it,
the wind which gave it breath
and the sun which gave it life
Thank you for the life which was given so we can eat
Earth who gives to us our food,
Sun who makes it ripe and good,
Dearest earth and dearest sun,
Joy and Love for all you’ve done
