Grace: For all Occasions

You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.

~G.K. Chesterton

Yes, saying grace isn’t just for meals and bedtime. May every breath you take be a hymn of praise and a prayer of thanksgiving. Saying grace is always appropriate and an integral part of thanks-living. Sprinkle your prayers as liberally as your would salt and pepper over the gifts of your day.

Sabbath blessings!
