Our kids love to fight over who gets to pray at mealtimes. (Sigh.)
Sam's prayer is quick and simple: Dear God, thank you for the food. Amen.
Vava's changes based on the season: Dear God, thank you for the food and Merry Christmas.
Kachi's is my favourite: Dear God, thank you for God. Amen.
And I think he's onto something. Because all our gifts come from God. All our food, all our comfort and family and joy, all our shelter and warmth and peace - all from God.
And at Christmastime, especially, when we remember that babe who traveled so far -
Thank You, God, for God.
It's a pretty good prayer after all :).
Merry Christmas friends.
