I haven’t had a lot of riches and sometimes the going has been tough. But I have love ones all around me and that makes me rich enough. I thank God for his blessings and the mercies he has bestowed me. If Good gives me the strength and courage when the way gets steep and rough, I’ll not ask for other blessings, I’m already blessed enough.
