EACH CHRISTMAS I ALWAYS SAY THANK YOU FOR GOD'S BLESSINGS



Photobucket

This time of the year makes me very grateful
For it reminds me of my Dear Lord's birthday
And all the events that took place in his life

That this child grew up to be the King of Kings
That he died for all of our sins to be forgiven
For all he endured because he loved us so much

I recall all that I experienced as I grew up
All the deadly events that I had been involved
Every time I had survived by the grace of God

Some say it was just dumb luck that I made it
Others say it was because of all my training
But I know it was God's Grace that saved me

After all of these years and no matter the events
War, peace, layoffs from work due to the economy
Or whether it had been my own illnesses I faced

I had survived it all no matter how bad it was
For only one reason in every situation we faced
That is because God's Grace cured my body & soul

When I'd thought there was no hope, God was there
When my body was failing me from a heart blockage
He guided the doctors as they raced to open it up

When I was laid off from work, he provided for us
We took care of our kids before worrying about us
And when we were broke out of nowhere help arrived

He has provided for us in good times and in bad times
He's never forsaken my family or I in our time of need
When I thought I'd never find work, he guided me to it

Now as an old man and looking back I can see clearly
That through all those years I've live, God was there
He never left and when I couldn't walk he carried me

It was his saving grace that had always guided me in life
For no matter what he led me to he brought me through it
I had always believed in him, trusted him & followed him

Though my future was never guaranteed I'd chosen to follow
To do what I could wherever I could to help others in need
And to thank God each and everyday for all of his blessings
