THE FARMER'S WIFE: Remembering 10 Years Ago {a personal story}

TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013


I thought I'd share something I read a week ago
over at the Farmer's Wife.

The Farmer's Wife

It was both heartbreaking and beautiful.

The poem below says it all.

The Farmer's Wife: Remembering 10 Years Ago {a personal story}:  I am going to take you back 10 years ago today. On April 11th, 2003, I woke up and got ready for the day.  My co-workers and I had a ...



Drinking From My Saucer

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.

I haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's tough.
But I've got loved ones 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 God, help me not to gripe about
the tough rows that I've 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.
