Thoughtful Spot Sunday . . .

At this time of the year, I always reflect on how blessed I am and how grateful I am to all of those who have, and will bless me along the way.  In church we sing a beautiful song called, "Because I Have Been Given Much".  As you read these lyrics, think of all the blessings you have been given, and maybe some ways you can bless others in their lives.

Because I Have Been Given Much

 Because I have been given much, I too must give.

Because of thy great bounty, Lord each day I live.

I shall divide my gifts from thee with every brother that I see,

who has the need of help from me.

Because I have been sheltered, fed by thy good care…

I cannot see another’s lack and I not share-

my glowing fire, my loaf of bread-my roof’s safe shelter over head,

that he too may be comforted.

Because I have been blessed by thy great love dear Lord,

I’ll share thy love again according to thy word.

I shall give love to those in need. I’ll show that love by word and deed,

thus shall my thanks be thanks indeed.
~Written by Grace Noll Crowell~

When I am counting my blessings,  for which I am so very thankful, let me remember those who have helped me and blessed my life in so many unspeakable ways - I am so thankful for all of you who are so dear to me.  Today, let me also remember to give thanks for you, to the God we worship together.
