This morning after church I was visiting with a gentleman from our congregation. We stood just outside the church house, discussing some of our concerns: jobs, rising gasoline prices and financial woes.
"But you know", I said, "We have so many more blessings to be thankful for than negatives in our lives." He nodded and smiled in agreement for he has had his fair share of hardships and trials, yet continues to believe and have faith.
The very moment I turned to walk towards my car, the church bells began playing a new song. Its title: "Count Your Blessings".
