FINALLY:

http://www.ajokeaday.com - 11/24/11:


A Taliban was sitting in a cave when he heard over a dune the voice of one American solider: "One American solider is better then 10 Taliban fighters," so the Taliban angrily sent over ten of his high-ranking soldiers.

After a lot of gun fire and yelling and screams of agony, the Taliban heard the voice again. "One American solider is better then 100 Taliban fighters."

So the Taliban sent over 100 of his highest ranked soldiers, sure of victory. After a lot of gun fire and yelling and screams of agony the Taliban heard the voice again. "One American solider is better then 1000 Taliban fighters."

So the Taliban sent his toughest, meanest, personal guards over the dune. After hundreds of bullets fired, and explosions and the screaming and crying, it was over. The Taliban now wondering what happened goes over the dune where he found a wounded Taliban solider who said, "Don't send anymore men; it's really a trap. There are really two of them!"

Count Your Blessings

Words by Johnson Oatman, Jr., 1897
Music by Edwin O. Excell


When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Refrain:
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings—wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
