A table prayer

My dear, sweet wife and I got into Jan Karon's "Mitford" series of books years ago and we devoured them.  Karon's depiction of Father Tim, serving a colorful cast of characters in a small town in North Carolina made for such joy. I wrote this table prayer in my journal; I believe it is from "At Home in Mitford," although I didn't note the page.

Accept, O Lord, our thanks and praise for all You have done for us.  We thank You for the blessing of family and friends, and for the love that surrounds us on every side.  Above all, we give You thanks for the great mercies and promises given to us in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whose name we pray.  Amen.
