Blessings Abound!

Lately I’ve been thinking often of the old song Count Your Many Blessings.

Count Your Many Blessings

I think some of this comes from looking at the beauty in the Autumn colors. What incredible blessings abound everywhere you look.

Some of you know that I have been dealing with a lung infection since mid-August. Yesterday I heard the good news that it is improving with medication. YEAH!

So I thought I’d share some of my abundant blessings lately:

Lung Infection Meds to help it improve it
Rheumatoid Arthritis IV drug has to stop No major R.A. symptoms without IV
Wearing a mask in public Most people very friendly and most are understanding
Can’t work at garden center Most of my work can be done from home
Fatigue from lung infection Family & friends who have given prayers, food, support & encouragement
Rich is retiring God has provided in incredible ways after 38 years at Rockwell
Rich is retiring He will be busy in his shop catching up on blacksmith projects
Rich is retiring He will work on my “honey-do” list
Rich is retiring Road trips, vacations, time at the lake, Bumpa & Ama time
Rich is retiring He will be around to process all the butternut squash, spaghetti squash, Delicata and acorn squash from the garden

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.

Refrain:
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.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, ev’ry doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]                                             ~ Johnson Oatman, Public Domain

May you enjoy God’s abundant blessings in your life as well ~ Faye
