Sittin' Under the Oak Tree 11-6-18

A dear neighbor/friend from about 30 years ago shared this ?treasure? with me and it is still one of my favorite pieces to read and re-love-all-over-again.

Drinking? From A Saucer

I?ve never made a fortune

And it?s probably too late now.

But, I don?t worry about that much.

I?m happy anyhow.


As I go along life?s journey,

I?m reapin? better that I sowed.

I?m drinkin? from my saucer now,

?Cause my cup has overflowed.


Ain?t got a lot of riches,

Sometimes the going?s rough.

But I?ve got kids that love me

And that makes me rich enough.


I just thank God for His blessings,

And the mercy He has bestowed.

I?m drinkin? from my saucer now

?Cause my cup has overflowed


And I remember times when things went wrong,

And my faith got a little thin.

But then all at once the dark clouds broke,

And that old sun broke began to shine again.


So, Lord, help me not to gripe

About the tough rows I have hoed.

I?m drinkin? from my saucer now

?Cause my cup has overflowed.


And if God gives me strength and courage

When the way gets steep and rough,

I won?t ask for other blessings,

I?m already blessed enough.


And may I never be too busy

To help another bear his load.

Then I?ll keep drinking from my saucer

?Cause my cup has overflowed!
