Blessed

"Blessed"  by Brett Dennen 

I welcome the sun,
the clouds and rain,
the wind that sweeps the sky clean
and lets the sun shine again.
this is the most magnificent life has ever been.
here is heaven and earth
and the brilliant sky in between.


blessed is this life
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive.
blessed is this life
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive

 
 
I dwell in the darkness
I live in the light
I sleep in the afternoon
and become the noise in the night
I trespass in temptation
suffered in sacrifice
but I awake each day with a new sunrise


blessed is this life, oh
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive
blessed is this life, oh
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive


I've been feeling pretty sorry for myself lately, taking granted how fortunate I really am.  Then I heard this song on Pandora.  I've only heard it once before, 2 years ago, right before things in my life got crazy crazy.  

I am blessed.
