    This is great for the Thanksgiving Season. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!


    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 is 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."

    "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 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 are
    very rare."

    "If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm,
    you're 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 care to, pass
    this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are

    ATTN: Acknowledge Dept .
    "Thank you Lord, for giving me the ability to share this message
    and for giving me so many wonderful people with whom to share it. "

    If you have read this far, and are thankful for all that you
    have been blessed with, how can you not send it on ??? ?

    I thank God
    for everything, especially all my family and friends

    Thanks Tac, I sometimes get bogged down with worries, and this is a good reminder of how petty my worries are compared to the big picture.
