know there are a few of us worried about ...
........the stock market, the election, or the price of lift tickets,
bottom line is, whatever we think, most of us are incredibly blessed.
I am sharing this because it just seemed to be timely. Feel free to
pass it on, or not. Either way, have a great holiday season.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back,
a roof overhead and a place to sleep... you are richer than
75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare
change in a dish someplace... you are among the top 8% of
the world's wealthy.
If you woke up this morning with more health than
illness... you are more blessed than the million who will
not survive this week.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the
loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the
pangs of starvation... you are ahead of 500 million people
in the world.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of
harassment, arrest, torture, or death... you are more
blessed than three billion people in the world.
If your parents are still alive and still married... you
are very rare, even in the United States.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are
truly thankful... you are blessed because the majority can,
but most do not.
If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them
on the shoulder... you are blessed because you can offer
If you can read this message, you just received a double
blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and
furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion
people in the world that cannot read at all.
Have a good day, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, and
pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
