COUNT THE BLESSINGS….by Carl Gooch

Count the Blessings

Have your eye grown so accustom to the dark,
That you are blinded by the light of truth?
Has this sinful world so closed your heart,
That it is no longer open as in your youth?

The world twists and distorts your thoughts,
Confusing you as to what is and isn’t real.
They use lies and half truths to deceive,
Playing upon your emotions and how you feel.

You have been set adrift on and angry sea;
Only death and destruction lay before you.
Listen with anxious ears to the words of love;
Sweet and true, revealed by the Spirit to you.

Our fight, dear brothers, is not with flesh;
But against the rulers and spiritual forces of evil.
Those who refuse to see and will not hear,
Will forever be blind and hear only babble.

Let not your mind be clouded with doubt;
Test and approve these things I speak about.
Search the Holy Scriptures, receive His love.
Count the blessings that come from God above.

NEW YEAR’S GREETING

NEW YEAR’S GREETING:

A New Year’s Blessing for you,
God’s Blessing on what you’ve been through…
Whether troubled or not
It is what we’ve got,
So look for the joy bubbling, too!

—Jonathan Caswell

THANKFUL THIS YEAR

THANKFUL THIS YEAR

 

My wife and I are thankful

For blessings from the Lord…

While we may not have a “bank-full”,

Our lives are rarely bored.

We’re thankful for relatives,

Especially those who speak….

To us in commonalities

Like flood stage of the creek.

We’re thankful for family

And friends who remember…

That we are God’s children,

And Diana’s birthday in September.

We pray that we’ll be taken up

In the Rapture, really soon…

And until then, enjoy what life we can,

Whether morning, night or noon!
