Life's Storms

Claude Joseph Vernet, The Shipwreck, 1772, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Count Your Blessings, Johnson Oatman, Jr. 1856-1922

When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

So amid the conflict, whether great or small, Do not be discouraged, God is over all; Count your many blessings, angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey's end.

Have a wonderful Sunday. Pappy
