One of my favorite hymns tell us to “Count your blessing, name them one by one,
County your blessing, see what the Lord has done.” We are a people God has rewarded.
Do we have a roof over our heads?
Do we have a source of heat for our homes?
Do we have clothes to protect us from the elements?
Do/did we have a spouse that loves/loved us?
Do we have the means to pay our debts?
Do we have at least one friend in whom we can confide, if necessary?
Are we able to enjoy God’s fall display of color?
Do we have enough to feed our families?
Can we travel freely, if we choose to?
If we can answer ‘yes’ to most of these questions, then we are a blessed people.
WE ARE NEVER ALONE.
