I am blessed because...


I am blessed because I wake up every morning with breakfast ready on my table,
when there are people waking up to hunger.


I am blessed because I wake up with clothes to wear,
when there are people shivering in the cold.


I am blessed because I wake up knowing that I don't have to walk to school,
when there are people who don't have a school to go to.


I am blessed because I get to eat even if it's not time for breakfast, lunch or dinner,
while some people wonder when the next meal will come.


I am blessed because I am living such a comfortable life, playing sports, joking around with friends, using the internet and sleeping whenever I want,
when some people are using their last bit of strength to make sure they survive hunger, illness and pain.


I am blessed because I have friends to talk to when I'm in pain, to laugh with when I'm in joy and to be my aid when I'm in need,
when there are people who feel sad, sorrow and pain without anyone
to lean on.


I am blessed because I have a caring Mum, an awesome Dad and a loving little sister, while there are people who will never know who their parents are.


I am blessed because I know I am loved by God.

The people in pain, the people in hunger, the people in sorrow,
the people who lost everything, the people who kill, the people who
steal, the people who hate, the people who persecute, the people who is the worst of all humans, are loved by God too. They just need to know it.







I am blessed, are you?

If you think you're not, remember this, God loves you, no matter who you are.
You just need to know it. =

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
