Fwd: Boys...


I read this after Thanksgiving, but I wanted to pass it on anyway. Just think about it for a few minutes and be very, very grateful for your place in life.

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 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 are among the
top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still are very rare, even in the United States.

If you hold up your head with
a smile on your face
and are truly 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 are blessed
because you can offer God's healing touch.

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, & remember to
"count your many blessings, name them
one by one, and it might surprise
you what the Lord has done".
