What Happens In Heaven

I dreamed that I went to Heaven and a angel was there to show me around. We walked inside, side-by-side to a very large room filled with angels... My angel guide stopped in front and said "THIS IS THE RECEIVING STATION"... here all petitions to God said in prayers are received. I looked around this area and it was so terribly busy, with angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world...
Then we moved on down a corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel said to me, "THIS IS THE PACKAGE AND DELIVERY SECTION". Here the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living people whom ask for them... I noticed again how very very busy the angels were since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for earth.
Finally at the furthest end of the corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station... To my surprise, only one angel was seated there idly doing nothing... "THIS IS THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT SECTION" my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed. " How is it that the is no work going on here?" I asked. " So sad" the angel sighed.. "After people receive the blessings they ask for, very few send back acknowledgements"." How does one acknowledge God's blessings" I said. " Simple" the angel answered. Just say " Thank you, Lord" " What blessings should be acknowledged" I asked.
" 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 have money in the bank, in a wallet or change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy. And if you are reading this on your computer, you are part of 1% in the world who has that opportunity... If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the people that won't survive this day. If you have never experienced the fear of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or pains of starvation, you are ahead of 700 million people in the world... If you attend church without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are envied by and blessed more than 3 billion people in the world. If your parents are still alive and still married, you are rare... If you can hold your head up and smile you are not norm.... You are unique to all those in doubt and despair."

If you are reading this on my blog you have just received a double blessing... Someone was thinking of you and wanted to share... and you are so very blessed over the 2 billion people in the world whom cannot read at all."

"ATTENTION ACKNOWLEDGEMENT DEPARTMENT" " Thank you Lord for giving me the means to share this message with so many people... I do so thank you for all I am able to have and enjoy in life and especially for my family and my friends...."

Beautiful post. It is so very easy to forget to be thankful for what we have been given,. I will keep the picture created by the last room in my mind and hopefully keep that angel a bit busier in the future.
