Count Your Many Blessings
© 2008 Marilyn Ferguson

Count the stars up in the sky
Where the eyes of God doth lie.
Count the many grains of sand
Found throughout this wondrous land.

Count the birds up in the air
Feathered friends are everywhere.
Count the lakes and rivers too
Found beneath a sky of blue.

Count the sunsets all aglow
Where the lovely rainbows flow.
Count the fireflies in the night
Makes for quite a stunning site.

Count the waves upon the sea
Hear their splashing melody.
Count the snowflakes swirling down
Tumbling like a circus clown.

Count the planets hung in space
Each one in its proper place.
Count the thunder in the storm
Where the bolts of lightening form.

Count your blessings one by one
Where the Godís promises are spun.

Photos: The Shenandoah River flowing through Waynesboro Virginia taken at Ridgeview Park

The Shenandoah River is mentioned in John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads," which associates the river with the state of West Virginia. In fact, both the Shenandoah River and the Blue Ridge Mountains are, with the exception of the tiny geological fingertip near Harper's Ferry, entirely within the commonwealth of Virginia. The Shenandoah is one of the rare North American rivers that flows to the north.
