Count The Blessings

Count The Blessings Don't count the heart aches. Don't count the sorrows. Don't count the tears that you have cried over the years. Count the smiles you bring to peoples" faces. Count the good times you had through the years. count the friends that you have made. Count the blessings that you recieve everyday. give thanks to the Lord for sending those blessings your way and don't ever be afraid...

    This poem is so true, we do need to count our blessings and not see our failures and negative things! The Lord is forgiving and loves us all, he just wants us to be near to him and talk to him and to be grateful of what he has given us! I am grateful every single day of what I have, I have a wonderful life now, and I'm so happy he has given me what I have! Your poem is inspiring, and I hope it touches many lives as it has touched mine! What a beautiful and wondrous piece this is my friend!!
