Count Your Blessings!

When you are tempted to groan in complaint,

Count your blessings.

When you think you should be farther in life than you are,

Count your blessings.

When it seems what you have is small compared to your neighbour’s,

Count your blessings.

When life’s expectations are not met by your standards,

Count your blessings.

When you are surmounted with the cares of this world,

Count your blessings.

When what tomorrow holds fill your mind with worry,

Count your blessings.

Yes, if you can name your blessings,

Go ahead and name them.

Some people don’t have what you have,

What you have is their own answer to prayers,

That’s why you have to count your blessings.
