When I read this eight years ago it changed my pre-meal perspective and consequently my prayer. Now instead of asking God to bless my food, I bless God, the provider of my food.

    Sis Mary,

    I loved this story about blessing our Father, the provider for our food! I have never thought of it that way.

    Thank you!
    Mary

    Thanks Mary.
    Isn’t it neat how we do something for years and then our perspective is changed? When I read this, it revolutioned saying “grace.”
    Hope to see you soon,
    Mary
