i have been blessed

God is so very good to me.  i am sure that by now everyone has heard the song, "i have been blessed".  you can find it everywhere on youtube.  i am a fan, that's for sure!  every time michael hears it, he gets all's his fave.  i love it, too.  how amazing that God has blessed us all so abundantly.  i certainly am undeserving of any shred of  grace and mercy, yet every day He loads my pail with blessings.  i have just been thinking about how Christ loves and cares for me even when i do not love and care for Him as i should.  shelby and michael are gonna attempt to sing it sunday nite.  i hope it goes well.  anyway, just thought i'd share with ya.  im jottin down the lyrics, just in case you haven't heard it yet.  i may even try to video them singing it 2moro nite....we'll see!

When He moves among us, all that He does

All of His mercy and all of His love
If the pen of the writer could write every day
Even this world could never contain, how I’ve been blessed.

Warmth in the winter, flowers in spring
Laughter of 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

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

Arms that will raise, a voice that will 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.

A mother and father, nurtured and raised
Sisters and brothers, memories made
Our pastor to lead us, this altar to pray
Stripes that can heal, the blood that still saves.
I have been blessed.

We live in a country, the greatest on earth
That flag stands for freedom and what it is worth
She stands in the harbor, Miss Liberty calls
All have given some, but some gave it all
So we can be blessed.

He’s my shoulder to lean on when I am down
The 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.
