The Christian custom of saying grace is their way of saying thanks this is wonderful.
A thanks-giving prayer is good for those who have a God to give thanks to, and if they haven’t it is still good to be thankful.
Grace is a prayer. When you pray you are talking to yourself, God is in your head.
If you are grateful you are happy, if you are dissatisfied and wanting, you are not happy.
The bird of paradise lands on the hand that is not grasping.
Words are not deeds, actions speak louder than words.
Therefore to take the time to savour, appreciate and enjoy your food will please the provider, who ever they may be.
I do not disrespect anyone with a sincere belief in a God. I am expressing my honest belief.
That actions and intentions are more important than only saying thank you.
I try to really appreciate what gifts come my way.
