A GRATEFUL HEART

Hello dearies, would love to share with you guys an article I got long time ago which I just found few days ago. It was a printed out e-mail and the sender said “Have never been to heaven but this is a must read. Please do not delete, you will be blessed” I was blessed and I’d like for you guys to share in the blessing.



WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN
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 1st Section and said: “This is the Receiving Section”. Here, all petitions to God said in prayers 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 down a long corridor until we reached the 2nd 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 doing nothing.
“This is the Acknowledgement 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 received the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgements.”

‘How does one acknowledge God’s blessings? I asked.

“Simple, the angel answered. Just say thank you lord.”
What blessing should they acknowledge? I asked.

“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 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 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 this world! If you can attend a place of worship without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by and blessed more than 3 billion people in the world. If you can wear shoes, it is a priviledge because there are many with either one leg or without legs out there! If you can admire beautiful works of nature, remember there are many who can’t see. If you can eat with your mouth, millions have food but cannot eat. Living in your house? Many are living in the hospital. Many don’t have houses to live in. complaining about tomorrow, many don’t know today! If your parents are still alive and still married, you are very rare! If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you are unique to all those in doubt and despair.”

‘Okay, 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 2 billion people in the world who cannot read at all.” Count your blessings and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.


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. A thankful heart is not only a joyful heart but a getting hand.

Please Do Share with a grateful heart.

Love

THREE TIPS FOR DEALING WITH 'STRANGERS'

Before a person became a friend, he/she was a 'stranger', then maybe an acquaintance before attaining friendship. In life, many circumstances or situations tend to take us away from family and friends that we are so used to and safe around such as NYSC, industrial training, internship, law school, medical school, competitions or even relocation.

THANKFUL FOR HIS HELP

My heart is filled with gratitude. At the end of last year, I wasn’t in a good place. There was this heart-gnawing fear. A new phase was coming in my life and the uncertainty of the future just ate me away. My relationship with God was on a zig-zag lane and the downward lane seemed to last for longer periods than the upward. I was honestly so scared about the future. A lot of what ifs.
