We are so Blessed!

There is nothing like taking in a sunrise while enjoying a cup of coffee and a good book..........

You know do you realize how blessed we are?
 It is truly, very shocking. 

Did you know:

~If you own just one Bible, you are abundantly blessed. One-third of all 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 millions who will not survive this week.

~If you can attended a church meeting with our fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blesses than three billion people in the world.

~If your parents are still married and alive, you are very rare, even in the United States.

~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 money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are in the top eight percent of the world's wealthy.

~If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep, you are richer than seventy-five percent of this world.  


Wow. When I read those for the first time I nearly cried. We really don't realize how blessed we are until we see the pain of this world. I hope that helped you. It sure gave me a lot of perspective. When I think of it, it makes me feel so silly fighting with my siblings. It's not worth it. 
Thank God for what He has given you!
