Thank You Lord…

Thank You Lord…

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’s 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.”

Also…

“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 meeting 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 are unique to all those in doubt and despair.”

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.

 “Ok, what now? How can I start?”

 Thank You Lord!

      Hi our dear friend Island Traveler, how special it is that you take the time to encourage us when you are always so busy Thank you, I hope you received our e-mail but as you can see God gives gifts and uplifts even when we can’t see a way.

      Yes we do indeed have earthly Treasure Island Traveler that we can give thanks to God for but it is nothing to what we will have in Heaven, we can store up more Treasure in one geniune Love outreach shown in words and actions then a lifetime of saving money or material goods….How good is that!… you must be very rich indeed and your interest must be accumalating daily on a grand scale, God knows our heart and you can be sure He never short changes us.

      Christian Love from both of us – Anne

          Wow that was quick dear friend, were you waiting, you sure have a lot of faith that God never lets us down and always leads the way to Victory, please keep praying, we still have bridges to cross and the waves are very high but your support and others keeps us from giving up!

          Love you always Dei in Christ Jesus, must be about time for another Award, I wonder if we could give one to God for His constant Faithfulness but it would need to be very, very, very Bigggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg but we already have the symbol to put on our Blogs when we pass it on for Him … The Cross…on second thoughts let’s just Love Him, each other and everyone else and even the hackers with all our heart, I’m sure that is a Award He would hold in High esteem and even cherish.

          Christian Love Annie.

    Hello Anne! I’m so glad to see you back again! I hope your computer issues are resolved. I have missed you so much! My heart sings with gladness in harmony with this message from your heart. This is a small taste of heaven…unity, praise, peace and joy before our wonderful Lord. I appreciate your words that echo His truths. When we begin our day, it is always an amazing experience to be reminded of all He did yesterday, all He is going to do today and what is in store for tomorrow, through His love and mercy. I don’t know if you have Thanksgiving traditions where you live, but I know you will be in thanksgiving anyway. Blessing upon blessing for you and Ron….love you…Donna

      Hi Donna, thank you for your kind words, sadly my Computer is still a worry but once again God gave me this gateway, I will visit you soon dear friend.

      You are right Donna there is aways much we can give thanks for, all good things come from God and He can do no evil or does He willingly allow it but He tolerates it patiently giving His Children time to come to heart repentance.

      Christian Love Anne
