Not Rich In Money


I may not be rich in money but I'm rich of happiness
I don't care about money
Why?
Money can't buy everything, especially feelings
Money can't last forever

I'm happy even though I'm not rich
I have a good life, I have wonderful friends and families, and most of all: I am loved and cared
Being loved and cared is far better than having money
What will you choose?
Money or friendship and love?

I am grateful for all the things God gave me
Money doesn't matter
So what if you have a lot of money
But do you feel happy?
Being happy is more important than money
Why?
Because if you're not happy... it's hard to heal unhappiness as time goes by

I am happy as long as my family and friends care about me
I am happy to have such wonderful friends and family that supports me everyday
I am happy
Even if I'm poor... but I'm happy because my family and friends fill my heart with laughters, jokes, and smile in which all the burdens and stress flows away like the wind

Being poor is good though
You see poor people that are happy
Because they have each other
You can do anything with each other and do anything together

I am thankful God...
Thank you forgiving me such a wonderful life with the best friends and family in the world
Thank you for making me feel happiness everyday
Thank you God, for supoorting me, my family, and my friends
Thank you God, for protecting everybody in this world. Even you.

    This is a beautiful poem, such a beautiful message. Your words speak of an incredible message... you don't need money to feel like the richest person in the world, as long as you have love. Love is the true happiness. Can I share your poem with those I love? I would be honored to share your poem with my friends and family so they too can share in your blessed message. Thank you.

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
