In 1942, Irving Berlin wrote a charming little song titled “Count Your Blessings.” In it he advises that worry and sleeplessness can be diminished by replacing your list of worries with a list of good things in your life.
“When I’m worried and I can’t sleep, I count my blessings instead of sheep, and I’ll fall asleep counting my blessings.”
It may sound cute and simplistic, but it’s actually a valid technique.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead, and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet or purse, or even spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the word’s wealthy.
If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them, or even touch a shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer God’s healing touch.
May your days be many and your troubles be few. May all God’s blessings descend upon you.
