Choose to be Grateful

Often when we count our blessings, we forget many of them.  So today I will share a few with you that we never think about:

 

If you woke up this morning                          

with more health than illness,                          

you are more blessed than the                          

million who won’t survive the 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 20 million people                          

around the world

 

If you can attend a church meeting                          

without fear of harassment,                          

arrest, torture, or death,                          

you are more blessed than almost                          

three billion people in the world.

 

 If you have food in your store or refrigerator,                          

clothes on your back, a roof over                          

your head 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 someplace, you are among                          

the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

 

 If you can 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 can read this message,                        

  you are more blessed than over                          

two billion people in the world                          

that cannot read anything at all.

 

 You are so blessed in ways                          

you may never even know.
