Giving thanks before eating
Updated: Sep 27, 2020
giving thanks before we eat allows us to feel blessed for all of the nourishment we are given.
Before we eat all of the delicious foods that we have before us, we say thank you to all of the people who tended to the production of the foods and gathered and delivered the food to us. We thank those who prepared the food. We give thanks to our creator for our blessings.
At the Bear Tribe Medicine Society gatherings where we enjoyed an abundance of good food, we would give thanks for all of the plants, and animals that gave of themselves for our nourishment.
Appreciation and reverence.
Whatever foods we are enjoying, we can take time to experience our gratitude for the blessing of having those foods prepared for us; to nourish our being and satisfy our hunger.
