Thanksgiving Blessings

We are counting our blessings today!  How about you?

-thankful for the completed work of Christ
-a home that gives us shelter
-a job that Jeff loves
-children who are growing in Godly wisdom
-freezers, a refrigerator and shelves stocked with wonderful foods
-hands that are willing to work
-minds that are capable of learning
-music in our home
-sweet snuggles from little guys
-a shoulder to lean on when the day has been wild
-tools to get a job done
-medical help when it is needed
-friends who encourage
-books, books and more books
-Gods' amazing grace

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 has done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you alre called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.

When you look at others, with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you his wealth untold;
Count your many blessings, money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict, whether great or small, 
Do not be discourage, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey's end.

Count your blessings, name them one by one;
Count your blessings, see what God hath done; 
 Count your blessings, name them one by one;
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
