I was thinking about a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ post, but for this post I think being ‘wordless’ might go a bit underexpressed! This post is not about photography! It’s about reality!
If you think that life treats you unfairly, check this out!
Photos from Mumbai slums! (The truth is much worse than these pictures!!!) 😦
If you have never experienced the danger of battle,
the loneliness of imprisonment,
the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation,
you are ahead of 20 million people around the world
If you have food in your 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 hold up your head with a smile
on your face and are truly thankful,
you are blessed because the majority can,
but most do not.
If you attend a church/mosque meeting without fear of harassment,
arrest, torture, or death,
you are more blessed than almost
three billion people in the world.
If you have money in the bank,
in your wallet, and spare change
in a dish someplace, you are among
the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
If you woke up this morning
with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million who won’t survive the week.
If you can read this message,
you are more blessed than over
two billion people in the world
that cannot read anything at all.
If your parents are still married and alive,
you are very rare.
If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them
or even touch them on the shoulder,
you are blessed because you can
offer God’s healing touch.
How many of us think that we are not blessed, or complains all the time about silly problems, or worry about unnecessary things and feel bad about what ‘GOD’ has not given us yet!
Think again!! Look Around!! See the Good!!
You are so blessed in ways you may never even know!!!!
Keep smiling!!! Think Good, Do Good!!
