Grateful

It is a time of gratitude.  So many of you have written in regarding the Siyahamba Project and Sparks From The Fire.  It’s all worth the long hours of writing when there’s so much feedback.

I’ve spent the weekend trying to answer the stacks of mail.  I’ve got several days to go.  In fact, I’d better get back to the task before me right now.

Grateful
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I wake up every morning
And I am grateful
I’m alive
And every time I count my blessings
I realize that I am here with You

And when each night
I turn the light down
And thank You for my life
Sometimes it is the only way
I know how to pray
I’m grateful for this day

And when I don’t remember
To give it up and thank You lord
I lose a little life perspective
And drift around
Till sense has been restored

And when the slings and arrows
Of great misfortune come my way
I try to stop and count my blessings
And just be grateful
Grateful every day

For a heart that beats
For the breath that rises
For a child that sleeps
In his mother’s arms
For the love of life
Grateful for the way my life has turned
Thankful for the little things I’ve learned
Grateful for the wisdom of the wise

I wake up every morning
And I am grateful
I’m alive
And every time I count my blessings
I realize that I am here with you

And when the slings and arrows
Of great misfortune come my way
I try to stop and count my blessings
And just be grateful
Grateful every day
