Just a couple things I wanted to say

Posted by @jakedduck1, Dec 31, 2018

The first is a Hymm I like, the second a message a friend sent me. Both offer an excellent message.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

1. When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
2. When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
3. Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
4. And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
* Refrain:
* Count your blessings, name them one by one,
* Count your blessings, see what God has done!
* Count your blessings, name them one by one,
* *Count your many blessings, see what God has done.
* [*And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.]
5. Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
6. Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
7. Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
8. And you will keep singing as the days go by.
9. When you look at others with their lands and gold,
10. Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
11. Count your many blessings—*money cannot buy [*wealth can never buy]
12. Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
13. So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
14. Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
15. Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
17. Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.

If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation you are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering.

If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all.
