Count Your Blessings

I got this off the Faith Sisters forum.....

Words: John­son Oat­man, Jr., in Songs for Young Peo­ple, by Ed­win Ex­cell (Chi­ca­go, Il­li­nois: 1897).

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

Kimberly and the Big Step

We got so tickled at Kimberly playing on the hearth. We had kept telling her "no" each time she got up there but for some reason she was just fascinated with it and kept climbing up. This time I decided to record her. Then was trying to get down but was afraid to make the "big step" that she needed to take to do it and was really telling us about it. Finally Rebecca went over to help her and you could really see the releif on her face when she saw that she had some help. She was just too cute!

Wedding Scrapbooks

I finally got Alyssa and Chayce's wedding scrapbooks finished and uploaded all the page photos to my facebook page. I may upload some of the pages here, too. There are a lot of them. I was so proud of the fact that I finished before Christmas - until I cleaned off my scrap desk and found ANOTHER stack of pictures that I had not done for Chayce and Nicole's album. I am starting to wonder if I will ever finish that one and be able to move on to something else!?!

Here is the link if anyone wants to check out my scrapbook photo album.....
