Gratitude

when one considers our world from such a compressed perspective

the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent

the following is also 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 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 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 someplace ... 

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

if your parents are still alive and still married... 

you are very rare, even in the united states and canada.

if you can read this message

you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all

someone once said:
"What goes around comes around.
work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
dance like nobody's watching.
sing like nobody's listening.
live like it's Heaven On Earth."
