The Birth of a Prayer

"We've said this grace since my daughter and son were born," writes Jenny Wilcox of Lone Tree, Iowa.

Thank You, dear God, for the beautiful day,
for home, for care, for happy play
for health, food, love, family and friends
for everything Thy goodness sends.
Thank You for the rest when the day is done
and the love that takes care of us—everyone. Amen.
