What happens in Heaven…

A friend sent me this so i thought i would share it with you. It’s a timely & inspiring message about gratitude. Gratitude is an attitude – its a choice! And a habit…..

When you are consciously grateful for what you already have you will begin to attract more to be grateful for – Try it!

“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.”

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

Turn your “stressings” into “blessings” – Look for the silver lining in everything.
