We gather around this feasting table,
Humbled by our bounty,
Lord of abundant life:
We have so much more than we need.
We confess that we are poised,
Fork in hand, ready to overdo.
Help us to learn better how to live as
Grateful, if overstuffed, children --
Delighted, surprised and generous
With the sharing of our good fortune.
Bless us now as we enjoy it amidst
Food - Friends - Family
We give you the heartiest
Thanks for your diligent
Love from Patton Place
Thanks to daughters Merry and Judy, and also to sister-in-law Geraldine, for helping so I could better enjoy my guests.
As always I was inspired by the blessings of a lifetime.
It was a hopping good time.
(P.S. Tiny ceramic frogs were my choice of favors!)
