For them.


When we were growing up, my mom had my brother, sister, and I sing the "special music" for a few nursing homes' chapel services.  One of the numbers we did was a medley involving "Count Your Blessings".  Our kids 3yrs and older actually did really well during rehearsals (including Rowen, who had a hard time even facing forward during the actual performance!).  It was fun, and while we won't be taking them on the road any time soon, I hope my parents enjoyed it :) 


{When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed}


{When you are discouraged thinking all is lost}


{Count your many blessings}


{Name them one by one}


{And it will surprise you what the LORD has done}


{Count your blessings}


{Name them one by one}


{Count your blessings}


{See what GOD has done}


{Count your blessings}


{Name them one by one}


{Count your many blessings}


{See what GOD has done}


Happy 35th anniversary to my parents, even tho it wasn't a surprise, it was a great party!
