Count our Blessing as we Should

   Today I had some time off from work and decided today to  meditate, write in my journal  and count my blessings.  I had a lot on my mind and had been complaining all week about all the things that had annoyed me ...Like my bills, a flat tire, a cold that just wouldn't go away and not enough time to get all of my Christmas shopping done. ..These complaints took a back seat when I heard about a tragic story on the News concerning 20 little children and 6 teachers that were gunned down in Newtown  Conn, Friday, by a young troubled man by the name of Adam Lanza. http://news.yahoo.com/evidence-hints-deadlier-plan-conn-massacre-195025644.html

My heart and prayers goes out to all the parent's and the families who lost there loved ones in this tragedy during this Holiday Season..... My prayers also goes out to my co-worker Sarah, who lost her mother to cancer on Monday..And our dear blogging friend... Lorraine of Flower Lady's Musings
http://flowerladysmusings.blogspot.com/  who lost her husband DH...also to cancer. 

May we always focus on the good
And count our blessings as we should.
May all our complaints depart
And thank God with a grateful heart.

Our troubles may be the same,
But we can still praise His good name!
Our load may be hard to bear,
But thank God, the Loadbearer is there.

We will forget to complain
And not mention life’s pain,
If our days are filled with praise,
And we thank God in all our ways.

Don’t think that things are so bad,
And don’t live with a heart so sad.
Countless blessings are ours each day.
Let us thank God when we kneel and pray.
