Helping You Over The Mountains of Life

The following is something to ponder: 

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 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 

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 can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder 
....... you are blessed because you can offer healing touch. 

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that 
someone was thinking of you, you are wealthy enough to have an internet 
connection and power on, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over 
two billion people in the world that cannot read at all. 

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