Counting My Blessings

I am thankful for my blessings
Not a day does ever go by
Where my heart reaches toward Heav’n
And my eyes can’t help but cry
Each need my Saviour does provide
Never slacking nor does He sleep
His timing is truly perfect
In His palm my life He keeps
There are times my needs are many
Some met before I even ask
At times the Lord remains silent
Yet he’s working on the taskMy Shepherd lovingly does care
For each intimate of details
He carefully does touch them all
With His hand which never failsI thank You Lord for loving me
For this love I do not deserve
It was free for me to receive
Now with gladness do I serve!

Thank you, Lord…

For my husband, John, and giving him a strong body and mind to lead our family.

For my son, Aaron, and giving him the gift of teaching to mold tomorrow’s young minds.

For my son, Adam, and giving him a love for his country to serve as a Marine.

For my Pastor and church family and the blessing they are to me.

For my dear friends (you know who you are) who touch my heart and challenge me.

For my brother and his dear wife for opening their lives so we may join in.

For my health – for without it, I could not use the gifts You have given to me.

For meeting each need in our lives as we praise Your Name and share the blessings with those who will hear us.

I’m eternally grateful for these and too many to record here. I love you, Lord!Kate Plourde
