“Gratitude is an opener of locked-up blessings.” ~ Marianne Williamson
Are You Blessed?
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 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.
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 prayed yesterday and today...you are in the minority because you believe God does hear and answer prayers.
If you can read this now, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

“We need deliberately to call to mind the joys of our journey. Perhaps we should try to write down the blessings of one day. We might begin; we could never end; there are not pens or paper enough in all the world.”~George A. Buttrick
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
~W. T. Purkiser
“Some wish blessings, others pray for them. Some send blessings and they become one.”~ Joyce C. Lock
P.S:May you always run out of paper on which to write down your blessings……and may you find yourself…..
