The Common Table Prayer: Free Printable

I didn’t forget to post this morning….I was just contemplating what I wanted to say.

I have often been found making jokes over the past week regarding the rapidly evolving Coronavirus situation.  I do that.  Call it a coping mechanism…or whatever you want.  It’s how I do life.

I’m not going to get into what I think about whether it’s overblown, not being taken seriously enough, or if my family has enough toilet paper to make it through the next few weeks.  (I do know I have plenty of scrap fabric….so we’ll be good, I think)

If you have questions or concerns, I DO suggest you look to the CDC (they are called the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL for a reason)  If you want a more personal opinion: see how your friend or family member that is a Health Care Professional is living their life and taking care of their family.  We go about this the same way…all the time.  We go to work, deal with the diseases everyday, and wash our hands a lot.

What I WILL say is this is the first time my husband and I have discussed the spread of disease and germs so thoroughly with our children. (with the exception of when my mom was sick and couldn’t come visit)  We don’t get to protect them from the world around us…the world and it’s problems will find them.  So we make sure we are part of their safe place and sounding board.

As we sat around our dinner table last night….

we discussed what’s happening, and some of the possibilities of what is to come….

and We Prayed.

We prayed the Common Table Prayer and Return Thanks that we do every sit-down meal.  If you’ve prayed this prayer before, it’s likely you rush through and never give it another thought….but I urge you to slow down.

Ponder each line.

It’s so good.

It’s so NEEDED.

And that is why I knew I needed to share this project I made back in July of 2012 with you.  Please feel free to print and use in your own home.  The Super Large Framed version is what’s hanging in our kitchen right

CIRCA July 17, 2012 from my previous blog:

I have a great idea for some artwork for our Kitchen Dining Area…but I needed to first make the Subway Art Print.

While I was at it, I thought I’d share 🙂  It’s a 4×6 jpeg….but think how fun it would be printed out 2ft. x 3ft.!
