These days are really tiring to the core. I can hardly go to sleep. I’ll be able to take a nap  soon as I get home but that would only last for an hour or two. Then it’s work time again.  The feeling that you’re shortchanged for everything adds to the burden too. I don’t know how to explain it. Sigh.

I’m sure nobody wants having this feeling – a sense of unsatisfaction and discontentment. do you get these moments when you feel that everything could still be much better than it is now? When you feel that a lot of people are standing on better ground and being washed down with cleaner rain? Yes, I know it’s unhealthy but I’m not sure myself where this is coming from so I guess it’s worth listing down the possibilities. Maybe through this I can get this out of my system and feel a whole lot better… If you have seen my Friendster account before, you should have noticed three words written under the “About Me” area. “Happy and contented…” Now I’m thinking, do I post another one which says- “Gloomy and unsatisfied…?” Nah. I’ll get over this. Maybe I just really lack sleep. I’ll just count my blessings, and tomorrow, my Friendster account will just be a reflection of what and how im feeling… “Happy and contented…” These thought made me remember also what we used to sing when I was still living with my Uncle Pastor.

Count Your Blessings

When upon life’s billows
You are tempest tossed
When you are discouraged,
Thinking all is lost
Count your many blessings,
Name them one by one
And it will suprise you
What the Lord has done.

Chorus:

Count your blessings,
Name them one by one
Count your blessings,
See what God has done
Count your blessings,
Name them one by one
Count your many blessings,
See what God has done.

Are you ever burdened
With a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy
You are called to bear?
Count your many blessings,
Ev’ry doubt will fly
And you will be singing
As the days go by.

When you look at others
With their lands and gold
Think that Christ has promised
You His wealth untold
Count your many blessings,
Money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven,
Nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict,
Whether great or small
Do not be discouraged,
Godis over all
Count your many blessings,
Angels will attend
Help and comfort give you
To your journey’s end.

And have you noticed my new multiply theme? A friend www.ejo23.multiply.com made that. He’s such a nice and sweet person.

That’s one thing I should be grateful for right?
