Thanks at the table

cicada[Just in time for the cicadas! Yum!]

Bountiful God! the eyes of all wait upon thee, and thou givest them their meat in due season. Grant that we may have greatful hearts for the provisions of thy hand which are now before us, and let them nourish our frail bodies, that we may have strength to pursue our respective avocations. Keep us in thy love, and finally save us, through Jesus Christ. Amen.
