When the Blessings Come

When the Blessings Come

When the blessings come,
Flooding o’er our soul,
We are richly rewarded
Knowing God has control.

When the blessings come,
We are filled with joy,
Not something we’ve done,
But what God employs.

When the blessings come,
Happiness new again starts –
A cloudburst flowing
Though our hearts.

— Charles B. Mayes

When we sit awhile and think about all the trials God has helped us through, sometimes the thoughts of his blessings rush over us like a powerful spiritual surge.

I appreciate what Larry Pine wrote in his South Bay Concert News (March) referring to my Poetry Reading on February 6th, 2015, the following:

“The Christian poetry of Charles Mayes added a creative break to the Bethel Hymn Sing. Even poems with motions for Children’s programs . . . ”

Already in 2015 we’ve have visitors to this site from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Barbados, Indonesia, India, Saudi Arabia, and the Philippines.
