    If you own just one Bible, you are abundantly blessed 1/3 of the world does not have access to even one.

    If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not 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 500 million people around the world.

    If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest or torture of death, you are more blessed that almost three billion people in the world..

    If you have food in your 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 a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.

    If your parents are still married and alive, 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 in God's willingness to hear and answer prayer.

    If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read anything at all.

    PS: Sometimes we need to put things into perspective, we expect so much and appreciate so little!

    Thanks Ace, sometimes no matter how bad things seem we can sometimes forget how truly blessed we are. :smile2:

    I have personally experienced some of the things in ace's post.I believe that it has a lot to do with my beliefs and thoughts on many subjects.I have felt and wondered if God had forsaken me at times.I now believe that I was being taught a much needed lesson.God was blessing me when I thought I had been abandoned.If I had not been sent home to await death,I would never have known all of you.I believe this.Ain;t God great?peewee-williams
