My grandparents were Presbyterian missionaries with the Nez Perce Indians around 1912, Rev A Roy Thompson and Dorothy Thompson, and later in Puerto Rico wher my father was born in 1916.


We have a family grace and I am looking for its source or other variations:


We thank thee Farther, wise and good, for Christ and home and daily food.

Bless to our use this food we take,

And keep us all for Jesus' sake.


Comments please. Thank you.

You can find an almost identical blessing in a old newspaper (St. Petersburg Times, Sept 5, 1954), if you Google the first line of the blessing. 


Also, you may be interested to know that the house your grandparents lived in in Westwood Massachusetts is on the market:  52 hillcrest place westwood ma.  I may be mistaken but from county records it appears that your grandfather purchased the land and built the house.  It is a very interesting architectural style.  I wish I knew who the architect was but I have no idea how I would even go about researching that.


Good luck to you!
