Saying Grace



We wrap up Picnic Week with this picture from West Virginia, taken in 1938. The folks are saying grace before the start of their picnic. The tradition of saying graces is still a strong one in many parts of the South, and Midwest. I am not sure about other places.

  1. We say grace too here in New Hampshire. God is great and God is good, with his hands we all are fed, give us Lord our daily bread. Amen.

  2. This week has reminded me of some large family picnics on my grandfather's farm, under a huge oak tree, when I was very young. Thanks for the memories!

  3. After 20 years of Catholicism, "Let's eat!" is about all we give it these days in the Midwest.

  4. The eyes of all wait upon Thee, O Lord,
    and thou givest them their food in due season.
