My favorite hymn of all time is "To God Be the Glory." (I do realize many people younger than 25 have no idea what a hymn is, but I love the old hymns as much as the 'new' worship music.:) The hymn is written by Fanny Crosby who wrote over 8000 hymns. Today I was doing a little reading about her and found her first poem. It is pretty amazing for an 8 year old. By the way, Fanny was blind.
O what a happy soul am I!
Although I cannot see
I am resolved that in this world
Contented I will be
How many blessings I enjoy
That other people don't
To weep and sigh because I'm blind
I cannot, and I won't!
Just a little something to help you start to get into an attitude of gratitude as Thanksgiving approaches.
