Counting My Blessings


Makes ya think.

Woke up this morning


Our furnace

Is giving us problems.

What to do?

After checking the obvious,

We called the furnace repair people.

It’s a little chilly,

But not too bad.

We have lots of sweaters and blankets

To stay warm.

As I sit here,

I realize what a blessing that is.

I know that

Having a roof over our heads,

Food in our stomachs


Clothes on our backs

Makes us richer than most.


At times like these,

I realize just how blessed we are.

It would take a lifetime

To count my blessings.

And that certainly gives

Lift to my wings.

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving (Psalm 69:30, NIV).
