“Give us this day our daily bread …” (Matthew 6:11, NKJV)
In the midst of preparing, I want to remember and be praying:
You only are the maker
Of all things near and far
You paint the wayside flower,
You light the evening star.
The winds and waves obey you,
By you the birds are fed;
Much more to us your children,
You give our daily bread.
We thank you then, Creator,
For all things bright and good,
The seed time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food. Amen.
””Matthias Claudius, 1740”“1815
