Sunlit Sunday Week 3


I've never made a fortune, and it's probably too late now. 
But I don't worry about that much, I'm happy anyhow
 
And as I go along life's way,
 
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
 
I'm drinking from my saucer,
 
'Cause my cup has overflowed.
 


Haven't got a lot of riches,
 
and sometimes the going's tough
 
But I've got loved ones all around me,
 
and that makes me rich enough.
 
I thank G
OD for his Blessings, 
and the 
Mercies HE 's bestowed. 
I'm drinking from my saucer,
 
'Cause my cup has overflowed.
 

I remember times when things went wrong,
 
My faith wore somewhat thin.
 
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
 
and the sun peeped through again.
 

So L
ORD , help me not to gripe, 
about the tough rows I have hoed.
 
I'm drinking from my saucer,
 
'Cause my cup has overflowed.
 



I don't know who wrote this poem but it goes with Sunlit Sunday and I felt it was perfect to share.  I am joining in My Little Home and Garden's Sunlit Sunday and Simple Things Sunday.

Hi, Ruth

What a lovely poem and some good advice is found in it. I just looked it up and it was written by John Paul Moore.
