Do you pray at the table?

Today’s quote is all of Psalm 37. It discusses doing good and trusting in the Lord. He is faithful and just to those that take His words and heed His commands. Ignore the ones that are evildoers, they will receive nothing. I saw it flash on Facebook and had to write it down – but now it’s gone. Basically, it said, “Where you are is where God wants you. If you are following His will.”

That picture is of my wall in my dining room. Ignore the orange paint and read the words. It’s the words of a prayer that my dad has said at the dinner table all of my life. It’s simple, yet effective, in it’s thanking of God. I have also taught my babies how to add on the end, “And bless the hands that prepared it.” I’ve been teaching them this prayer for nearly 3 months. I had it put on the wall of our dining room to help them in learning it. I’ve even told them the story of my mother always adding, “And bless the hands that prepared it,” at the end. They giggle but they always say it after the prayer. Last night, Caiden actually added that part before saying, “Amen.” It was awesome and I get to pass down a little history.

This morning, I attempted a Quiche. It was pretty simple. I had all the ingredients except the Swiss cheese in my fridge.


  • 8 slices of bacon, crisped and crumbled
  • 4 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 eggs, beaten (do this first!)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk


Line bottom of 9 inch pie pan with bacon and cheese. Mix up ingredients until smooth. Pour into pan. Cook on 350 for 35-40 minutes. My flaky oven took a little more than 40 minutes. Don’t open the oven during the cooking process or your Quiche won’t get as light and fluffy as it can.

There is none left. Both babies, Nanny and ex #1 ate every shred of it. I call that a win! Try it for your family. It’s really not all that hard and the ingredients aren’t many.

I don’t have a lot else to say, this morning. I’m sure I’ll think of something later.

Thank you for listening,

  1. My two year old’s favorite part of the prayer…”Dear Jesus” (haha) and “AAAMMMEEEN”.

    • The part I love the most is when the baby, Brendan (4), bows his head. He doesn’t do it casually or calmly. It’s like he closes his eyes and throws his head down to bow it. It can’t be described adequately – it’s a “must see.”
