Blessings Counted

For sunshine, for quenching rain,
For relief of our pain.

For green leaves on trees so tall,
For Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

For midnight, for afternoon,
For starlight and for the moon.

For laughter,
For children's smiles,
For walking with us across the miles.

For tears of joy, for hearts that care,
For the ability to love,
For the ability to share.

For gentle guidance,
For constant love,
We owe our thanks to God above.

This is my poem. It was published years ago in an anthology. I'm completely shocked to see it online. I don't know who posted it, but thank you for not altering it.

God bless,
Marsha, A friend of mine gave me a little book called "Priceless Gifts" that she received from the Salesian Missions. Your poem was one of the poems that was in it. I wanted to share it with everyone on the forum so they could be lifted up the way I was.

Being a cancer survivor since 1991 I count my blessings everyday.

Thank you both! one for writing it and the other for sharing it with us here..God Bless
Coincidence? I don't think so. A published poem showing up on a "firearms" forum visited by both the author and someone moved by the work, is nearly impossible, but as we know, "nothing is impossible."
