Sunday Servings.

I've never made a fortune 
 And it's prob'ly too late now;  
But I don't worry 'bout that much,  
I'm happy anyhow!

  And as I go along life's way  
Reapin' better than I sowed.  
I'm drinkin' from my saucer, 
 'Cause my cup has overflowed!

Haven't got a lot of riches,
And sometimes the going's tough;

But I've got loving ones around me,

And that makes me rich enough!
I thank God for His blessings
And the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinkin' from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed!

I 'member times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin;
But all at once the dark clouds broke
And light peeped through again.
So, Lord, help me not to gripe
About tough rows I've hoed.
I'm drinkin' 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!
May I never be too busy
To help others bear their loads.
I'll keep drinkin' from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed!

Jimmy Dean

Have a great week ahead everyone.
