Gratitude One

This morning, while preparing my breakfast, I had a choice: did I want to toast two slices of rye bread, or have a crusty bun instead. Did I want peanut butter on my buttered choice or jam or honey. Imagine, how blessed I am by God who not only gave me something to appease my hunger, but gave me a choice of what I’d like to eat for breakfast!

Dear God, Father of us all, please extend this plenitude to all who go without, many without even the very basics of survival. And, especially bless the children who are innocent of the wars, greed and ignorant decisions we adults make.
