30 Days of Gratitude Challenge: Day 16
Do you say grace before meals, eve when in public? It’s a great way to praise God. Begin today to say grace before you eat, wherever you are.
Sometime in the last few years I’ve written a story about this… I’ll try to find it. But anyways… I used to be great at it, started to slack, attended a retreat where someone else talked about trying to bless himself in public but unnoticeably, then I got back into the habit of praying before each meal — but also not trying to hide it while at work.
Then last year for Nora’s Faith Formation it was an “assignment” to pray grace before each meal and to memorize the prayer. So for a while we were very meticulous about it. But over the last bit I know I have not been perfect – remembering most of the time, but not 100%.
So I resolve today to say grace before my meals, every time, no matter where I am. (Wish me luck.)
