What Happens In Heaven

This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen, and it really puts
things into perspective..

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
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

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 ...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? 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 want, pass this
along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.

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

I read this email a while back and it really touched me. God blesses us so much and we don't even realize it. We don't realize that through all our trials, we are still so much luckier than many others out there, and we are much better off in God's name than the many who are lost.
I've seen this one before but it's so good to realize how fortunate I am again. I thank God almost every day for all his blessing to me--it's amazing!
