50th Anniversary Grace

Dearest Lord, God above,

Who gave us hearts and taught us love,

Bless all who gather here today

To celebrate from far away.

Family and friends, we all rejoice.

Our spirits and hearts are all one voice.

Our feast is prepared, our table spread.

We thank You for our daily bread.

We humbly ask your presence, Lord.

Nourish us with your Holy Word.

We ask this here in Jesus name

As he once in Cana did the same.

I think we are all plagued with feelings of guilt and inadequacy, especially when it comes to our spiritual lives and exercise routines. However, Christ came to set us free. Free from guilt and regrets; he wants us to be joyful and light like little children, who can laugh and rejoice and feel thankful.
