Luncheon Blessing

"When we lived in Pennsylvania, my sister, Shay, and I hosted an autumn luncheon for our college club," relates Rebecca Lohr of Hartville, Missouri. "I wrote this blessing, which we said before our meal."

Thank You for the harvest, a bounty of Your love. Thank You for the autumn leaves, a treasure from above. Thank You for the colored hues of orange, red and gold. Thank You for these golden days before the winter cold. Thank You for our friends so dear, we'll while away the minutes. Thank You, Lord, for every day and for Your presence in it.
