In the spirit of Christmas, the
following is something to ponder........
If you woke up this morning with more
health than illness...you are more blessed
than the million who will not survive this
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 or temple
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
you are among the top 8% of the world's
If your parents are still alive and still
married...you are very rare, even in the
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
If you can hold someone's hand, hug them
or even touch them on the shoulder...you
are blessed because you can offer healing
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.
