Giving thanks for our food is a good habit, but too often we rush through it. Today, for each thing you eat, give true and meaningful thanks. Thank God for the animals, the plants, the soil, the work of farmers, packers, shippers, cooks. Think of every element that went into bringing the food to your mouth and thank God for it.
