Counting My Blessings

I count my blessings

for people I love, for a

body in good health.

But I give most thanks

for God’s biggest sacrifice;

sending Christ to Earth.

God sent his son to

live on earth in human form

to live as we live.

He was flogged harshly

and carried his cross to where

he’d be crucified.

Christ was crucified

like a common criminal

to pay for our sins.

I am truly blessed

to know that Christ died for me

and for all of us.
