Dear Lord, sometimes, when we watch TV
I make a batch of popcorn and serve ginger ale.
When Native Americans showed popcorn
to the colonists, it must have been a surprise.
There are so many amazing things in our world.
It reminds me of the time our girls were 3 and 6,
and an uncle took them to his garden
and pulled up carrots. They thought that
carrots came from the grocery store.
Thank you for all the healthful and fun
things to eat in our world, Lord. Amen.
You cause the grass to grow for the cattle, and plants for people to use, to bring forth food from the earth, and wine to gladden the human heart, oil to make the face shine, and bread to strengthen the human heart.
Hymn: Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow
