Count Your Blessings (by Johnson Oatman)

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.
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.
[*And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.]
Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep 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 [*wealth can never buy]
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

As we sang this last Sunday in church I knew I just had to share it with you.  Take time to count your blessings today and to thank God for them.  He deserves all the praise, honor, and glory for them.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Psalm 107 (NIV)

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving day.  ML is busy cooking us up a turkey and I am working on the sides and desserts.  We are having a small celebration at our house today with close friends but will miss spending time with our families.

After the friends and food are gone we will be getting our Christmas on.  Carols will be playing, decor going up, and hot chocolate will be served!  Watch out Noah.  Your parent’s may go a little crazy tonight.

Now it’s your turn.  Link up your post sharing what you are thankful for.  Not a blogger but still thankful?  No worries, leave a comment below sharing what you are thankful.  I look forward to hearing from everyone.  It is such a blessing each week!  I’ll be back next week with our final Thankful Thursday post and linkup.
