God’s Been Good to Me

Another Poem I found from my I”deals Thanksgiving Magazine”  It happened to be by the same author, Clay Harrison.

And this is another painting of my mother’s. I enjoy showing off her paintings with a nice poem or story. When this was done it was a large picture (sorry don’t have the measurements), that she sold to a friend of hers, it looked beautiful on the wall. One of my favorites.

God’s Been Good to Me

I’m mindful of the blessings
That come my way each day.
My heart is overflowing
Each time I kneel to pray.

I’m thankful for the seasons;
Each one’s a masterpiece.
I’m allowed to work the land,
But God still holds the lease.

I’m grateful for the friendships
That brighten sorrow’s way,
Because my cup of happiness
Sustains me everyday.

I love the children and the flowers
That decorate my life
And the quiet, gentle hours
Free from worry and strife.

I’m grateful for eyes that see
The beauty of it all
Because God’s been good to me
And blessed me through it all.

I’m thankful for the little things
That fill my life with love.
The best things in life are free;
They come from God above!

Clay Harrison
