What do you think of the weather today?
Do you grumble and complain?
If the day is hot and sunny
do you say, "Why doesn't it rain?"
If you're eating cornbread and beans,
do you whine, "I wish I had steak."
Are you being so ungrateful your
thoughtless words make God's heart break?
Don't dare be a grumbler today!
Lift up your eyes and look around.
Do you see what God has done for you?
Look how your life with blessings abound.
Get on your knees right this minute.
Name all the gifts He's given you.
Tell Him thank you for every one,
even the rising sun and the morning dew.
Praise Him for the gift of abundant life,
for the sacrifice of His Son, His one and only,
for the people He's surrounded you with.
With God by your side you'll never be lonely.
Now you're finally getting the true picture.
Watch for those blessings every day.
You'll see how rich your life really is.
Praise and thank Him by the words you say.
