This was a quote from Our Daily Bread (devotion) this morning,
“Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
and you will be singing as the days go by.”
Today I count my blessings and the song takes flight from heart. I combat the negativity and discontentment that are rehearsed and try to reign. Today again choose to count, give thanks, and enjoy the grace, so much grace...
