Now, my mother was a Sunday School teacher, my father was a deacon in the local Baptist church, and my brother was the choir director and I was a doubter for as long as I can remember. They did not, however, bring the religion home and we never gave a blessing, thanks or anything resembling a prayer, unless we were feeding a preacher.I was glad of that.
Recently, my SWMBO and I were invited to a family dinner of a good friend of mine and he asked me if I wanted to say the blessing. I was taken aback because I had no prior indication of his devotion. Of course, I begged off ( said "No,thank you.) otw probably would have made a fool of myself or prayed for hours as retribution for asking me in the first place.
Got to wondering, how many cyberspace folks offer a blessing, thanks, prayer or whatever before your meals, and if so, at home in private, in public or whatever. And what do you do if you have company whose religious status you are uncertain of( Yeah, I know, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put!)
I thank Jesus for your replies.
