with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million who won't survive the week.
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.
clothes on your back, a roof over
your head and a place to sleep,
you are richer than 75% of this world.
in your wallet, and spare change
in a dish someplace, you are among
the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
you are very rare,
especially in the United States.
on your face and are truly thankful,
you are blessed because the majority can,
but most do not.
or even touch them on the shoulder,
you are blessed because you can
offer God's healing touch.
you are more blessed than over
two billion people in the world
that cannot read anything at all.
you may never even know.
