Spiritual Reflection: Drinking from my saucer

DRINKING FROM MY SAUCER

As I go along life’s way I’m reaping better than I sow,
I’m drinking from my saucer ’cause my cup has overflowed.

Sometimes the going’s get 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 drinking from my saucer ’cause my cup has overflowed.

Oh, remember times when things went wrong my faith wore somewhat thin,
But all at once the dark clouds broke and sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe about the tough rows that I’ve hoed,
I’m drinking 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 ’cause I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy to help others bear their loads,
Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer ’cause my cup has overflowed.
