Giving Thanks #8

And it came to pass that I did return to our tents, bearing the beasts which I had slain; and now when they beheld that I had obtained food, how great was their joy! And it came to pass that they did humble themselves before the Lord, and did give thanks unto him. --1 Nephi 16:32
We are grateful for FOOD! Food tastes AND smells good. We need food to live. Food is colorful. Family meals at home create a special bond. Romantic dinners, too. Sometimes food brings JOY (ie a great piece of CHOCOLATE!!). Vegetable gardens reap healthy benefits. Family car vacations experiencing a new restaurant with a new kind of food. Volunteering to serve in community soup kitchen feeds the hungry--also our souls! Being able to contribute to humanitarian efforts to feed others in need is a blessing as well!

Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. --Acts 14:17
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.  --1 Timothy 6:8

  1. I think they wrote a song about it: "Food, Glorious Food!" I'm grateful for it too!
