Thank the Lord for all that we have!!!!!!!!

I am on my way to Madurai via Bangalore.....the flight is delayed i don't know the reasons......so i have a lot of time...two hours of wait....great....i can do something worthwhile.....last evening i was with my friends for a dinner.....the friend of mine has a small business and he is doing well for himself...but generosity and love, charity and sharing is his mantra....he believes in sharing what he has.....he is a good Catholic....with a lovely son and wife....he shared with me while dinning and said that he learnt from one of his consultants who does not share his faith but believes and reads a lot about Jesus....this holy man said that thank the Lord for every moment and you will the wonders that God works in life....there is nothing that the Lord does not grant....but if we thank and express our gratitude he grants all......that you have a home, a shelter, a wife and children, bank balance etc...you have everything and still you are unhappy....he said then go to your window and look outside....you will find poor people....eating and drinking, sleeping....no proper shelter in summer, winter and monsoon.....yet they are happy......God has given us so much that we have no reason to be sad and unhappy.....the more we thank Him the more he pours His gifts on us.....every problem that we face we must first thank the Lord for having given us a little problem to worry about....not to blame and accuse anyone but to be with the problem....as you thank for it, the Lord then shows us the way to solve and overcome, he shows us the light to touch and feel the problems....he also leads us to those people who have more problems than us.....
The poor ones in their sickness and illness, they have no grantee of receiving good treatment as they cannot afford an expensive treatment.....they cannot be sure of their bank balance as they don;t have any bank accounts....some of them die due to non availability of funds to get treated.....the dead ones are carried on shoulders as it happened in Orissa.....the man could not afford a transport to carry the dead body ....so he carried the body....there are others who carry it on bi-cycles....but they do not complain....thank the Lord for what they have and receive....they are the most happiest people on earth....their smile is not plastic but real and genuine one....it comes directly from a contented and happy heart and soul.....on the streets of Mumbai....thousands sleep...no mosquitos and rats disturb them.....they sleep a million dollar sleep....rats play on their bodies yet they don't get disturbed.....morning they thank the Lord for that wonderful sleep which eludes from those who have good bed and beddings....till late night one is not able to sleep.....
