I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.

My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the
Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received."

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels
sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from
people all over the world. Then we moved on down a long corridor until we
reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section.
Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and
delivered to the living persons who asked for them." I noticed again how
busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station,
since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for
delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a
very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there,
idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment Section," my angel friend
quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed. "How is it that? There's no
work going on here?" I asked.

"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they
asked for, very few send back acknowledgments.

"How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I asked.

"Simple," the angel answered. "Just say, "Thank you, Lord"

"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.

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

"And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the
world who has that opportunity."

Also

"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness....! you are more
blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. "

"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of
imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are
ahead of 700 million people in the world"

"If you can attend a church meeting without the fear of harassment, arrest,
torture or death .. you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion
people in the world."

"If your parents are still alive and still married .. you are very rare."

"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you are
unique to all those in doubt and despair."

"Ok, what now? How can I start? "

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that
someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than
over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you want, pass this along to
remind everyone else how blessed we all are.

"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."
I praise the lord that i have this, i thank him with all my heart.
The most stirring thing that I seen this summer, was a young half naked African girl, crawling on her hands and knees down and old dirt road, to get to where she was going. There was an outbreak at that time of the polio virus. My prayer at that time certainly wasn't for myself, I can tell you that. But for the millions of poor and lame people, and even the saints of this world that are having a hard time. But thank God he hears the crys of the poor and helps them...but only by other men with merciful hearts...as we seen this summer when all countrys gathered together to raise money for these people.

My prayer is still on these things, may God help us to pray for the poor and the needy. And most of all for the poor,who are of the household of faith.

Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Psalms 144:15 excellent verse. I felt good reading that! Actually, felt great! :smile:

How about excellent? GOD never fails to amaze me, and anyone else.

Praise GOD every second, every breath!
