WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN |
This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen and is so true:
Idreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. Wewalked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.
Myangel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, "This Isthe Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer areReceived."
I looked around in this area, and it was terriblybusy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminouspaper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
Theangel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section.Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed anddelivered to the living persons who asked for them."
Inoticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels workinghard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested andwere being packaged for delivery to Earth
Finally at thefarthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the Door of a verysmall stati on To my great surprise, only one angel was Seated there,idly doing nothing. "This is the Aknowledgment Section," My angelfriend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed "How Is it thatthere 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.
"Ifyou have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roofoverhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. Ifyou have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish,you are among the top 8% of the world's wealth y ."
"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 aremore blessed than the many who will not even survive this day ."
"Ifyou have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness ofimprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation .. Youare ahead of 700 million people in the world." ;
"If you canattend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture ordeath you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people Int he world ."
"If your parents are still alive and still married&nbs p;...you 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?
Ifyou can read this message, you just received a double blessing in thatsomeone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessedthan 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.
