I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Somewhere in the World Today

I have never heard this song, but at the Ladies Retreat I was at this past weekend, I saw these words, and they touched my heart, and I haven’t stopped thinking about this.

For my sons:

Somewhere in the World Today by Wayne Watson

Somewhere in the world today
A little girl will go out to play
All dressed up in mama’s clothes
At least the way that I suppose it goes
Somewhere in the world tonight
Before she reaches to turn out the light
She’ll be prayin’ from a tender heart
A simple prayer that’s a work of art

Chorus
And I don’t even know her name
But I’m prayin’ for her just the same
That the Lord will write His name upon her heart
‘Cause somewhere in the course of this life
A little boy will need a godly wife
So hold on to Jesus, baby, wherever you are

Somewhere in the world out there
That little girl’s learnin’ how to care
She’s pickin’ up her mamas charms
Or maybe, swingin’ ’round in her daddy’s arms
Somewhere in the world to be
Though the future’s not real clear to me
Their’s could be a tender love
Grounded in eternal love above

Repeat Chorus

Five Special Blessings to Me Today: Brendyn, Tyler, Madelynne, Adreya, Wyatt

Have A Blessed Day!

A Favorite Song

The McCormicks have a CD out, and his song is on there. It is one of my favorites. It is aptly named I Have Been Blessed. Here are the lyrics.

When He walks among us, All that He does.
All of His Mercy, and all of His Love
If the Pen of the writer, could write every day
Before leaving this world, he could never contain
How I have been Blessed
 
Warmth in the Winter, Flowers in Spring
Laughter in Summer, the changing of Leaves
Food on my Table, and a good place to sleep
Clothes on my back and Shoes on my Feet
Oh, I Have Been Blessed.
 
CHORUS: I Have Been Blessed
God is So Good to Me
Precious are His thoughts of You and Me
No way I could count them, there’s not enough time
So I’ll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good, He’s so Good.
Oh, I Have Been Blessed.
 
Arms that can raise, and a Voice that can Talk
Hands that can touch, and Legs that can walk.
Ears that can listen, and eyes that can See
Oh, I’ve got to praise Him as long as I breathe
‘Cause I Have Been Blessed
 
A Father and Mother, who nurtured and raised
Sisters and Brothers and memories made
Our Pastor to lead us, This altar to pray
Stripes that can Heal, Oh, and Blood that can Save
Oh, I Have Been Blessed
 
CHORUS
 
We live in a Country, it’s the greatest on earth
Our flag stands for freedom and what it is worth
She stands in the Harbor, Miss Liberty calls
All Have Gave Some, Oh but some gave their All
For me to Be Blessed
 
He’s my shoulder to lean on, When I am down
The rock that I run to, When I’m Overwhelmed
The Place where He hides me, Is under His Wing
He’s not just a song, He’s the reason that I sing
That I Have Been Blessed.
 I Have Been Blessed
God is So Good to Me
Precious are His thoughts of You and Me
No way I could count them, there’s not enough time
So I’ll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good, He’s so Good.
Oh, I Have Been Blessed.
God has been good, He’s so Good.
Oh, I Have Been Blessed.
