    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
    And as I go along life's way,
    I'm reaping better than I sowed.
    I'm drinking 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 all 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.

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

    So LORD, help me not to gripe,
    about the tough rows I have 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,
    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.


    When I think of how many people in this world have it worse
    than I do, I realize just how blessed we really are.

    I don't know who the author is. My Aunt sent it to me.

    It was too beautiful not to share.

    that was given to me by a neighbor. The song has been made popular by a unique southern gospel singer named Michael Combs, but I believe it was written by Jimmy Dean...and he makes good sausage too!

    Thanks for giving all a chance to read.

    Blessings,
