The Strains Of Life

The perfect song to reflect on a not so perfect week.

I know there are a few others that have faced some unusual challenges this last week.

Regardless of what is happening, “count your blessings, count them one, two three”.

 

“Strange Cup Of Tea”

Sometimes I wake with a weary head and
I wonder how I’ll ever get through
Then I think of the things you said
how you told me to my self be true
My faith in things unseen,
My belief that it’ll all work out
May seem like a strange cup of tea,
but if it’s all right with you than it all
Right with me

On my feet I walk, with my legs I run
In my arms I’ll hold another day
With my head I think, from my heart I sing
And with my hand to my face, I pray

There are times I feel with the stains of life
I could just turn around, turn around walk away
Then a strength like a beam from above
lifts me up by the hand and it leads me to say
Good things for good people you see
good things they seem to all work out
May seem like a strange cup of tea but
if its all right with you well then its all right with me

On my feet I walk, with my legs I run
In my arms I’ll hold another day
With my head I think, from my heart I sing
And with my hand to my face I pray

Getting by ain’t enough for me
I know what I like I like what I see
I’m not only flesh and blood but
I’m heart and soul I know

Sometimes I feel at the end of the day
was it worthwhile or have I settled for less
I sit back and you’re there by my side sincerely you say,
we’re both so blessed
Count your blessing count them one, two, three
don’t give up cause it’ll all work out
It may seem like a strange cup of tea but
if it’s all right with you, it’s just fine with me

On my feet I walk, with my legs I run
In my arms, I’ll hold another day
With my head I think, from my heart, I sing
And with my hand to my face, I pray
