As I sit here sipping my cup of coffee and organizing my files in my computer, I found this email and thought this little verse was appropriate for our 2010 Tea And Coffee Quilt Along. Of course my email had music added and it was beautiful...sorry I do not know how to add music to a blog (yet) as I have heard several. But right now this early in the morning 'slience is golden' as I organize my thoughts FOR TODAY...may your day be blessed too. Please have an oatmeal cookie...they have zero calories. (C:

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 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 loving ones all around me,
And that makes me rich enough.
I thank God 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 Lord, help me not to gripe,
About the tough rows I have hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
To help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.
