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 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 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
God's healing touch.
If you prayed yesterday and today...
you are in the minority because you believe
God does hear and answer prayers.
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 who cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings,
and pass this along to remind your
friends how blessed we all are!
