We have a plaque above our stove in the kitchen that reads “There is always something to be thankful for”. But I ask myself, “How often do I think about those things?” When occupied with a difficulty in life….your mind tends to forget to count your blessings. So that is what I am going to do this week… write a list of things I am thankful for.
Over the years this song has been a great source of encouragement…..
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed. When you are discouraged thinking all is lost. Count your many blessings name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy that you are called to bear? Count your many blessings and your doubt will fly, and you will keep singing as the days go by.
Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God hath done! Count your blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
I am going to start my list with “Cancer”. Why Cancer? Cancer has made me look at all the things I am thankful for.
May you have a wonderful day counting your blessings and being thankful.
I am thankful for each one of you!
