Come to the Table

Updated on November 17, 2012

A Poem of Thanksgiving

Come to the table

Prepared by loving hands.

Share the abundance;

Our gifts to you.

You do not know me

I am a stranger

Today I open my heart

I give you the bread of life

Prepared by loving hands.

Come to the table;

It has been dressed with love.

A fine array of harvest

From our garden to you.

You do not know me;

I am a stranger.

Today I open my eyes;

I see we are the same.

Flesh, bone, skin, blood

Our humanity binds us.

Come to the table

Prepared by loving hands.

From this table I offer food;

From this table I offer drink;

From this table I offer mercy;

Come to the table

Prepared with loving hands.

You will not be turned away;

Come and sit by my side.

You are among friends.

No longer strangers

Only family.

Come to our table;

Prepared with hands of love.

      I really enjoyed the 'You do not know me' and 'You do not know me' which finally led to the "No longer strangers" line. Good stuff:-)
