Clay Aiken Gala Lovin'

Today's blog features Clay Aiken graphics, a new music video recap of Clay's Champions Gala of the past weekend by SueReu , and more. Enjoy!!

Drinking From My Saucer

I’ve never made a fortune And it’s probably too late now.

But I don’t worry about that much, I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way, I’m reaping better than I sowed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, “Cause my cup has overflowed.

I don’t have a lot of riches, And sometimes the going’s tough.

But I’ve got loved ones around me, And that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings, And the mercies he’s bestowed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong, My faith wore somewhat thin.

But all at once the dark clouds broke, And the sun peeped through again.

So God, helped me not to gripe About the tough rows that I’ve hoed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage When the way grows steep and rough, I’ll not ask for other blessings, I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy To help others bear their loads.

Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,

‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Hi Ashes,

I just love all your blogs and this one really put a big smil on my face this evening.

SueReu's video and "Drinking From My Saucer" are wonderful......and Clay is such a cutie. I love him hugging the Spamalot Bear, Too Cute.

Hope your doing well and staying away from the nasty flu bug.

Wow Ashes! Beautiful blends and just love all of them. Thanks so much for your creativity and amazing talent. Wonderful blog and enjoyed watching the montage. So glad that the Gala was a success and everyone who attended had a nice time. It's so good listening to Clay sing again and Moonriver is one of my favorite songs.

The poem you posted is awesome. Very inspiring and so true. I always love reading poems, quotes, etc. Appreciate you including it in your blog.

Cheers & have a wonderful weekend.
