Grateful

On a day so close to Thanksgiving, I feel even more grateful for everything the Lord has blessed me with in my life. Most importantly today is knowledge of a loving Father in Heaven and elder brother, Jesus Christ.

I would like to share lyrics to a song entitled Grateful.

I've got a roof over my head
I've got a warm place to sleep
Some nights I lie awake counting gifts
Instead of counting sheep

I've got a heart that can hold love
I've got a mind that can think
There may be times when I lose the light
And my spirits sink
But I can't stay depressed
When I remember how I'm blessed 

Grateful, grateful, truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed
And duly grateful

In a city of strangers
I've got a family of friends
No matter what rocks and brambles fill the way
I know that they will stay until the end

I feel a hand holding my hand
It's not a hand you can see
But on the road to the promised land
This hand will shepherd me
Through delight and despair
Holding tight and always there

Grateful, grateful, truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed
And duly grateful

It's not that I don't want a lot
Or hope for more, or dream of more
But giving thanks for what I've got
Makes me so much happier than keeping score

In a world that can bring pain
I will still take each chance
For I believe that whatever the terrain
Our feet can learn to dance
Whatever stone life may sling
We can moan or we can sing

Grateful, grateful, truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed
And duly grateful

Truly blessed and duly grateful.

I hope you are able to keep this message in your heart through this Holiday season and throughout the entire year!
