A Poem - Blessings Abound

Updated on January 4, 2017

There are doctors strong and stout...

Blessings

I cannot count your blessings.

I suspect you cannot, too.

And, if I count my blessings,

There would be no time to do.

Sickness can be a blessing!

Our body's fighting "all out"

To get us back to singing.

There's no cause to frown or pout.

Those medicines are blessings.

There are doctors strong and stout.

There are hospitals, if needed.

They'll sort the whole thing out.

Once back and among the living,

with strength and health to spare,

I suggest we count our blessings,

and look for God in there.

.

There are hospitals, if needed.

      "Sickness" can be a blessing. My dad had cancer and praised God till the end. He was our miracle, a blessing.

      My hubby and I count our blessings everyday. Despite trails and tribulations and never enough finances God has blessed us with health and for that we are truly thankful. I also say a morning and nighttime prayer because it is always good to know the Lord is near. Blessings to you and yours.

      Thanks for the reminder to count blessings, and for sharing that there are blessings which are usually not counted.
