Saying Grace

“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.” — G. K. Chesterton


  1. Wonderful!
    I do say Grace before the start of many things, but not everything as I should. And I have to remember to say Grace before opening my mouth to discipline my grandson, I think I really hurt his feelings today and there's no taking it back.
    Thanks for sharing this reminder.
    All the best,

  2. Thanks to God for those who thank Him...for all things. I love your sweet spirit, Rebecca...Thank you for a beautiful blog.
    His love is amazing!!!

  3. We are to pray and give thanks without ceasing!!!

    Thank you for the gentle prompting ;-)

  4. I have always said grace before meals, be it at home, visiting or in a restaurant but Rebecca you have made me realize there are many more times during the day I should be giving this post......:-) Hugs

  5. It is so wonderful that we have ready access to our Father. Prayer without ceasing is a way of life for sure. Thank you for reminding us of this great gift we have!

  6. Very sweet post Rebecca! I try to say grace often, at least several times a day! That photo that you chose was very sweet!
    Love Di

  7. Now there are some words to live by. Love Chesterton. Writing this one down.


    PS: And if I am what I eat, oh girl, you wouldn't recognize me. I eat everything!
