I found a blessing I love in the book, the creative family, by amanda blake soule. It seems like the perfect blessing to use before our evening meal.
Earth, we thank you for this food,
For rest and home and all things good,
For wind and rain and sun above,
But most of all for those we love.
Here are others I have found:
Earth that grows for us this food.
Sun that makes it ripe and good.
Dear earth dear sun,
Our loving thanks.
We give to you on this day.
for the golden corn and the honey from the bees
for golden sun and the apples on the trees
for fruits and nuts and berries we gather on our way
we thank our loving Mother Earth. we thank her everyday
Blessings on the blossom.
Blessings on the fruit.
Blessings on the leaf and stem.
Blessings on the root.
Blessed Be our Hearth and Home,
and our Family, wherever we Roam.
Blessed Be this Food, our Feast
May we always Dwell in Love and Peace.
Lord and Lady, watch over us,
and bless us as we eat.
Bless this food, this bounty of earth,
we thank you, so mote it be.
