Welcome!

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!

*
