A Very Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas and what have you done this year to make the world a better place? What are your plans to improve the world in the New Year? Share your plans with us.

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 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 attend a church meeting
without fear of harassment,
arrest, torture, or death,
you are more blessed than almost
three billion people in 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 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 married and alive,
you are very rare,
especially 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 can read this message,
you are more blessed than over
two billion people in the world
that cannot read anything at all.

You are so blessed in ways
you may never even know.

If you are feeling blessed, repay the blessings bestowed unto you and do something for others.

A blessing cannot be kept. If it stops with you, then the blessing will disappear. The blessing will only keep working if it is continuously passed around. If you are a recipient of a blessing, keep the blessings working by being the source of blessing to other people.

  1. This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. The thoughts given in the poem are so very true. Sometimes I know that I get so busy that I don’t take the time to count my blessings, or even to recognize them. It doesn’t take much to pass along the joy that comes from our blessings…..even if it is just a smile to the stranger that you may pass or however your heart tells you to share. Again you have to stop and listen. Thank you for the posting, Cherokee Billie.
    Merry Christmas to all,

  2. We do take so many things for granted, don’t we!

    Happy holidays to everyone.

    Dear Cherokee Billie,

    This is such a great moment to learn with Lennon’s lyrics. This is one of my favorites, too!

    We are all blessed with something special. However, we do not always remember to thank God for them, thinking the blessings would have come anyway, no matter if we deserve them or not. In truth, God acts just like that. Whether we deserve or not a blessing, this is not what counts, but how grateful we are.

    I usually have a saying that helps me keep my feet on the ground… I know God is holding my hand, so I always ask Him to help ME not let go of His hands. I know he won’t, but I am human… much more prone to forget that it is His hands which lift me up when I am down, they wipe my tears when I am sad, they guide me when I am lost, they comfort me when I am lonely… and many times I forget that His hands are responsible for everything in my life.

    Thank you very much, Cherokee Billie. I still have tons to learn… but thank you so very much for another opportunity for reflection! Wish you’ve had a Merry Christimas.
    God bless you!

    Karina de Cillo
