I first heard this word as a child when we ‘said grace’ before meals.
“Bless us O Lord and these thy gifts which we are about to receive through thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.’ Granted it was spoken hurriedly by us kids, the words all run together so we could move on and dig into the delicious dishes on the table (for it was mostly said before holiday meals.) Few of the words were contemplated or understood by me at the time. But it is never too late.
Through Thy Bounty
Bounty speaks of generosity and liberality. Of abundance and beauty, like a garden overflowing with life. Bounty realized, understood and appreciated elicits thankfulness to the Giver.
