|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, 1740–1815I hope every table is found with loved ones and many blessings! I’m going “off air” until Monday, November 28th!
