Count 'Em Up - They're There For the Seeing

Brother John, one of my chaplain in arms at WHC, lead worship on Friday morning. His theme was "The Blessings of God."  I found the words of wisdom he shared as Food for Thought meaningful and enlightening.  He shared them with us.  I now share them with you.

"God in His inscrutable designs at times allows certain things to happen that are most incomprehensible to us ... So we should trust in God's providence in all situations and give praise and thanks.  God at His own time will bring the good out of even a seemingly terrible situation."
  -  Ganaka J. J.

        "Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
           Count your gains instead of your losses.
              Count your joys instead of your woes;
                 Count your friends instead of your foes.
                    Count your smiles instead of your tears;
                       Count your courage instead of your fears.
                          Count your full years instead of your lean;
                             Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
                                Count your health instead of your wealth;
                                   Count on God instead of yourself."

The Heart Of My Heart is in the city where she was born, offering her gifts on mission with others from Grace.  I miss her.  She is my great blessing.
