You Are Blessed

You Are Blessed

If you own just one Bible ... you are abundantly blessed. 1/3 of all the world does not have access to one.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

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 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death ... you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

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 someplace ... you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married ... you are very rare, even in the United States.

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 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.

If you prayed yesterday and today ... you are in the minority because you believe God does hear and answer prayers.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

If you believe in Jesus as the Son of God and as your Saviour ... you are blessed as being part of a small minority in the world

Sept.2012 Get Away

Our Sept. 2012 vacation get away was such a Blessing to both of us. Just had to share a tid bit with you.
On Sept. 8th, Ron & I went down to Little Rock to the Childrens Hospital to deliver 3 "HUGH" boxes filled with Baby Blankies. Hats, & Bootie sets, Toddler afghans, Baby Hats, Childrens Hats, Baby Clothes, Dolls, Etc. Everything hand made & delivered with LOVE...
After we left the Childrens Hospital, we went over to the State Capital. I was just in AWWWWW from it's size and we were able to go inside and give ourselves a tour through the Capital... It was Absoutly AWESOME!!!! Never in my life did I figure I would be allowed to do ssomething like this... Even the Supreme Court office was open... What a wonderful place.. We had such a Grand time.. If you ever have an opportunity to do this,. make sure you do, you won't be sorry..
Next we went down to the River Market and walked around. Enjoyed myself BUT, wouldn't go out of my way to do this again...
Next on  Sept. 9th, Ron and I went to Bentenville to the Crystal Bridges.. OUTSTANDING Muesum
and as you can see from the outside around the meuseum, their is several paths/trails and we walked for what I felt was 3-5 miles, in reality it was more like 2 1/2 miles... Beautiful day but boy oh boy did my mussles hurt
                               This is a photo of the Arkansas Traveler. MOST important for everyone interested in coming to this muesum, it's FREE to go through the muesum and walk about the trails... ETC. A Gift from "Wal-Mart" Honestly
Sept 10th, We went to Har-Ber Village in Grove Okla. to Celebrate our 41st Wedding Annivsary. Now Har-Ber Village is a village filled with cabins 100 yrs old all originals donated by families of original owners, etc. filled with belonging from different erra's & times...

Wonderful time,  This is our second visit to Har-Ber Village. We both has so enjoyed walking and remembering when & why things were the way they were back when life was simple
This photo was just on one of the trails around the village.
 This is a photo of the church, Statue of Christ facing the Harbor, Breath taking is how I felt.
