We are celebrating my father’s birthday, near my hometown in PA, before driving back home. A family tradition has been singing the Doxology before each meal, so whenever our family and friends get together, we join our voices in song. Every table blessing sounds different because of the unique vocal mix. Sometimes we sing in unison and other times in harmony. It was nice to have my father’s baritone voice singing along with tonight’s meal as we praised God for our food, for each other, and for the many blessings in our lives.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise him all creatures here below; Praise him above ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen
