SO MANY BLESSINGS

by:
Connie Bratcher

There are so many blessings in this life,

How thankful we should be.

The sunrise, sunset, the mountains and streams,

Such magnificent sights to see -

Springtime splendor, the flowers in bloom,

The moon and stars at night,

Gloriously beaming down on us,

Shining their light so bright...

So many blessings flood our souls

Causing our hearts to shout,

Simple things we see each day

That some never think about.

There's the countryside with cattle on the hills,

Peacefully feeding their young,

And the songbirds singing such melodies

Like never before heard sung.

To watch them diligently building their nest,

As each plays its own part,

Then seeing them care for the baby birds

Truly touches the heart.

Such wonderful blessings indeed,

In heaven and earth surround;

We can see them in our family and friends,

If we'll just look around.

Let us always count our blessings,

Naming them one by one.

Then with thankful hearts we'll worship God,

And praise Him for all He's done.

Yes, so many blessings along life's way,

And every one of them free;

Thank You, Lord, for giving to us

The spiritual eyes to see.
