A Kitchen Prayer

Bless my little kitchen, Lord
I love its every nook.
And bless me as I do my work,
Wash pots and pans and cook.
May the meals that I prepare,
Be seasoned from above,
With your blessings and your grace,
But most of all - Your love.
As we partake of earthly food,
The table you have spread,
Weíll not forget to thank you, Lord,
For all our daily bread.
So bless my little kitchen, Lord,
And those who enter in;
May they find naught but joy and peace,
And happiness therein.


I didnít have potatoes, so I substituted rice.
I didnít have paprika, so I used another spice.
I didnít have tomato sauce, so I used tomato paste.
Not a half can, a whole one, I donít believe in waste.
A friend gave me the recipe, she said you couldnít beat it.
There must be something wrong with her, I couldnít even eat it!
