Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Food for thought


A phrase my father used about the words people say was, "You draw more flies with honey, than you do with vinegar."

I have always loved that phrase, and try, try to always remember (but don't always succeed).

Lisa, at My Own Sweet Thyme, gives more thought to our words, and just how they would taste in our own mouths.

My dad said that too. I just love the way dads often have such clever and concise ways to get a point across.

Thanks for the link!
