My Blessings Overflow Me: Things to Be Grateful for Today

A poem of gratitude and Thanksgiving for all the wonderful things the Lord blesses us with daily, that we sometimes take for granted :)

My blessings overflow me, it surely is a fact.

They trickle down like waterfalls, there is truly is no act.

I'm blessed to see the light of day, to take a nice, warm shower

I'm blessed to say my morning prayers, and rest before the hour.

I'm blessed to eat my favorite foods or even food that's icky,

To have a belly full and nourished, I'm thankful I'm not picky.

I'm blessed to see the world outside, and even my front yard

It may not be Hawaii, but my sight's a precious art.

I'm blessed by all the seasons here, the rain the snow the heat,

I'm blessed to know the plants and critters make God's world complete. 

I'm blessed to be around my family, people that I love

A minute I might want to rough them up, the next I want to hug.

I'm blessed to have an education, even when school can get boring

I'm blessed to have teachers that care, whether I'm failing or scoring.

I'm blessed to play my video games, even when I rage and lose 

I'm blessed to have two working hands, and many games to choose. 

I'm blessed to have a purpose in life, though I may not know it yet 

I'm blessed to know God knows my heart, my future I won't fret.

Sometimes we overlook our blessings, thinking they come in money

But when you see all that God's done, you'll think your complaints are funny.

Our gifts from God are more than wealth, abundant as you'll find

Breathing, walking, and good health

Or simply peace of mind.

So just examine your daily life, I'm sure you'll come to know

The blessings are there, big and small, and bound to overflow!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

I hope this short poem can inspire you of some things to be grateful for today! God bless you and our children, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
