Overcoming Depression #1
Whenever I am feeling:
lonely, sad, or blue;
dear Heavenly Father,
I am free to seek
my solace from despair
Whenever I am so
fatiqued, I find
all the necessary
strength that I need.
Whenever sleep won't
come I need not count sheep
just praise the Lord for a
good night's sleep!
'When I'm worried and can not
sleep, I count my blessings
instead of sheep. And I fall
asleep counting my blessings.
When my bank roll is getting
small, I think of when I
had none at all. And I
fall asleep counting my blessings...'
