A Cherished Poem

Although the following poem is quite short I think it speaks volumes. I dedicate it to you my cherished readers!

Count Your Blessings

Have faith in all you do,
And try to reach your goal,
Face the future with a smile,
Play out your special role.

Sorrow will sometimes come your way,
And tears will surely fall,
But there will be another day,
As time brings peace to all.

So lift your head up high,
Count your blessings one by one -
God's gifts are all around us,
Embracing everyone.

  1. that's so lovely, thankyou very much.
    I'm reading it while having my first early morning cup of tea- don't know what our time difference is?

  2. Very sweet, and the illustration suits it beautifully!

  3. What a beautiful poem! Thank you. Those words spoke to me ...sitting here with my beautiful Mum who sadly has Alzheimers. I really love your blog and thanks for your comment too.
    God Bless

  6. Hi friend!
    Your blog is always full of inspiring goodness!

  7. Hi Carla, How are you? I've been catching up on my blog reading, and have really enjoyed reading your news. This poem is beautiful. I wanted to let you know I'm hosting my first giveaway to celebrate one year of blogging, and to say thank you to the lovely people who have followed my blog and/or been inspirational. Your blog was one of the first I found when I started blogging, and your comments and support have really meant a lot to me. It would be lovely if you fancied entering my giveaway. I'm going to be designing and making a piece or two of silver and gemstone jewellery and passing them on to the lucky winners. Hope you're having a great day. Em x
