A Haiku - Blessings

Updated on February 9, 2015

When you need a blessing, one is always available.


Trouble sleeping now?

There's no need to count some sheep.

Blessings now abound.


Family can be one,

Eternal life another.

Choose your true blessings.


God knows you His child

He blest with free agency.

Use it wisely now.


Some blessings are earned.

Count them all and you can sleep.

Thanking God for each.




Visualize even a few of the many blessings you have had and those you have now.

      What a good idea! Much better to count our blessings than to count sheep - much prettier too!! Ann

      We have to look beyond our tribulations. Here I sit with a broken leg, but I still feel so blessed. I think you got it right!

      Hello Demas - Sometimes we don't know the blessings that we have earned, but we can ponder doing them and making sure not to delay action. Blessings, Debby

      Counting sheep is pulling the wool over your eyes. Yes, you can perhaps get to sleep that way, but counting your blessings is an eye opener to a more restful sleep. It assures you that you are not alone, and can even lead to happy dreams. Blessings.
