One of Bob' Favorite Poems Poem by John Paul Moore - Drinking From My Saucer

Ive never made a fortune and it probably too late now.
But I dont worry about that much I am happy anyhow.
And as I go along lifes way, Im reaping better than I sowed.
Im drinking from my saucer because my cup has overflowed.
I havent got a lot of riches, and sometimes the goings tough
But Ive got loved ones around me, and that makes me rich enough.
I thank God for His blessings, and the riches Hes bestowed
Im drinking from my saucer, because 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 God, help me not to gripe about the tough rows that Ive hoed.
Im drinking from my saucer, because my cup has overflowed.
If God gives me strength and courage when the way grows steep and rough
Ill not ask for other blessings, Im already blessed enough.
And may I never be too busy, to help others bear their loads;
Then Ill keep drinking from my saucer, because my cup has overflowed.
