Something to ponder.....Posted by marie on 6/12/03 at 21:07 (121705)
The following is something to ponder:
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
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
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
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
you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.
If you can read this message, you just received a double
blessing in that someone was thinking of you, you are wealthy
enough to have an internet connection and power on, 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.
