Blessed Indeed

Written by Ms. Nancy:

As I reflect on my life in the United States of America, I am so thankful for all of God’s blessings. It is so easy to take all of these blessings for granted in our day to day lives. However, I hope the following poem will remind us to count our blessings on those days when life throws us a curve and we wonder “Why Me God?”

God, Forgive Me When I Whine
Today, upon a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair.
I envied her, she seemed so happy, and wished I was as fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch. But as she passed, a smile
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have 2 legs, the world is mine
I stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold it had such charm.
I talked with him, he seemed so glad. If I were late, It’d do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me. “I thank you, you’ve been so kind. It’s nice to talk
with folks like you. You see,” he said, “I’m blind.”
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have 2 eyes, the world is mine.
Later while walking down the street, I saw a child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play. He did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said, “Why don’t you join the others, dear?”
He looked ahead without a word. And then I knew, he couldn’t hear.
Oh God forgive me when I whine.
I have 2 ears, the world is mine.
With feet to take me where I’d go.
With eyes to see the sunset’s glow.
With ears to hear what I’d know.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I’ve been blessed indeed, the world in mine.

Lots of love,

Ms. Nancy
