Hi everyone! Here are some interesting facts to ponder during those days when it seems everything is going wrong. We all have those days. I found this post while going through my older files. It is overdue for sharing with everyone again… I received the original copy from one of my friends and believe it is appropriate for everyone. The author is unknown.. The piece is titled the ‘Appreciation Philosophy’. Enjoy….
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 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 percent 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 percent 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 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, and furthermore, you are more blessed than more than two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
