What Happens in Heaven









This is one of the nicest mails I have seen and is
so true:


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." AMEN
