I received a bit of this in an e-mail. It was written by Charles Patridge and Greg O'Brien. It was sent me in a Christmas thingy complete with music. Beautiful!
I'd like to pass some of what they said on to you.
If you have food in your refrigerator, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are better off than 75% of the people in the world.
If you have money in the bank and change in a dish somewhere you are in the top 8% of the people in the world.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment, the pain of torture or starvation, you are better off than the 500 million who have.
If you have gone to a church meeting without fear of harassments or fear of even death, you are not part of the 3 billion who have not ever done so.
If you woke healthy rather than in sickness, you are better off than the millions who will not survive the week.
If you can read this be thankful, for 2 billion cannot do so.
This is not an exact quote nor is it a complete one. It's just a little info I'd like to pass on.
