A preacher went on a mission trip to the island of Tobago where a woman requested the song, "Count Your Blessings." She did so by raising a hand without fingers and speaking from a face with neither nose nor ears. She was a member of the leper colony were the service was being held.
Erma Bombeck once wrote:
"An estimated 1.5 million people are living today after bouts with breast cancer. Every time I forget to feel grateful to be among them, I hear the voice of an eight-year-old named Christina, who had cancer of the nervous system. When asked what she wanted for her birthday, she thought long and hard and finally said, 'I don't know. I have two sticker books and a Cabbage Patch doll. I have everything!' The kid is right."
Psalm 7:17: "I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High." Have you counted your blessings recently?
