Unique blessing

“Jesus Christ is the head of the home
The silent listener to every conversation,
The unseen guest at every meal.”

This well known blessing has been present in many homes over the years. It speaks of a number of important things in our faith experience. The first is that it acknowledges Christ as the leader of our lives and of our homes. Secondly, the blessing reminds us that Christ hears all of our conversations, even those that we wish he couldn't hear. Lastly, it implies that Jesus is present with us where ever we go - when we eat, when we sleep and when we work.

I invite you to pray this blessing today and to live as if it is true.

Living in Grace
