Count Your Blessings One by One

The Lord bless you and keep you; the
Lord make his face shine upon you and
be gracious to you; the Lord turn His
face toward you and give you peace.
          ( Numbers 6:24-26 *NIV )

    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.

               Here are even more blessings to count!

                         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 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 world's wealthy.

                         If your parents are still married and alive,
                         you are very rare, especially in this World
                         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 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.

     So let us;
Give thanks to the Lord, for He
is good; His love endures forever.    Amen.
                                                 ( Psalm 118:29 )
