A few years ago, Jackie and I realized we were tired of the “old” grace before meals we had said as kids and we wanted something a little different. That’s just about the time we found this great book: A Grateful Heart- Daily Blessings for the Evening Meal from Buddha to the Beatles (Edited by M.J.Ryan, published by Conari Press, Berkeley, CA)
We found it at Costco! (Also available at Amazon) Anyway, this book has beautiful prayers for all sorts of occasions and we use it especially when we have guests for dinner. I will share more of these special readings with you in the future, but for today, I thought this was fitting.
After yesterday’s Inauguration, it definitely feels like, “ A new dawn , a new day!” as John Legend sang so perfectly last night. It feels, too, like I want to pray for bestowal of all auspicious blessings upon our country, and our leaders and US! We have work to do too! We need to stay positive and patient as the new administration rolls out its plans and tries to make our democratic society a more perfect union.
And so we beseech with the prayer on the right above…and we REJOICE with the prayer on the left! Amen! (On your cellphone they may be bottom and top!)
I am not a particularly religious person, but I do believe in prayer and the flow of positive energy.
That’s all I have for today…Thursday that is. This day kind of got away from me! I’ll have a post for Friday, too…later! Ciao for now! Patty ✌️??
