I Have Been Blessed

 I don't know about y'all, but I am very easily distracted and tend to get things out of perspective.  Sometimes, I have to force myself to stop and be thankful for all that God has done for me and is going to do for me, which is something I am not proud of.  After all Who deserves my praise more than my Heavenly Father?

Here is a song that helps me remember just how blessed I am.  Please, take time to read the words and I pray that it helps you remember how blessed you are!

"I Have Been Blessed"
Verse 1:
He moves among us, all that He does.
All of His mercy, all of His love.
If the pen of a writer, could write everyday;
Even this world could never contain.
How I've been blessed.

Verse 2:
Warmth in the winter, the flowers in spring,
the laughter in summer; the changing of leaves. 
Food on my table, a good place to sleep.
Clothes on my back and shoes on my feet.
I have been blessed

Chorus:
I have been blessed God's so good to me.
Precious are His thoughts of you and me. 
No way I could count; them there's not enough time. 
So I'll just thank Him for being so kind.
God has been good, so good.
I have been blessed .

Verse 3:
Arms that will raise, a voice that can talk, 
Hands that can touch; legs that can walk. 
Ears that can listen; eyes that can see. 
I've got to praise Him, as long as I breathe.
I have been blessed.

Verse 4:
A father and mother who nurtured and raised
a brother and sister memories made
our pastor to lead us the altar to pray
stripes that can heal the blood that can save
I have been blessed 

Verse 5:
We live in a country the greatest on Earth. 
Where the flag stands for freedom and what it is worth. 
She stands in the harbor, Miss Liberty calls. 
All gave some, but some gave it all. 
So we can be blessed.

Verse 6:
He's my shoulder to lean on when I am down. 
That rock where He leads me; when I'm overwhelmed. 
The place where He hides me under His wings.
He's not just a song; He's the reason I sing.
I have been blessed.
