Autumn Grace #9: Give Us Grateful Hearts

Give us grateful hearts,
Our Father,
for all Thy mercies,
and make us mindful
of the needs of others
through Jesus Christ 
our Lord.


This is the traditional Hess family grace, so I was delighted to find it on a painting at a yard sale a few years ago. I hang it in the dining room each autumn. It's from the Book of Common Prayer, and it's good to think about the words and not just say them.

Grace and peace,
Virginia Knowles
