This email seems appropriate!

  1. i just received this email from a former pt. i got close to, and keep in contact with. he is a paraplegic, bilateral amuptee, and frequent pt. of the va. he spends a lot of time online...and spend me stuff...he thinks might interest me. i felt this was soo on time.

    just say "thank you!"

    a newly arrived soul in heaven was met by st. peter. the saint toured the soul
    around heaven. both of them walked side by side inside a large workroom filled
    with angels. st. peter stopped in front of the first
    section and said, "this is the receiving section. here, all the petitions to god
    said in prayer are received. the soul looked at the section, and it was terribly
    busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper
    sheets from all over the world.
    they walked again until they reached the 2nd section. "this is the packaging
    and delivery section. here, the graces and blessings asked for are packed and
    delivered to those who asked for them down on earth." oh, how busy it was!
    there were many angels working in that room, since so many blessing were being
    packed and delivered to earth.
    finally at the farthest corner of the room, the soul stopped at the last
    section. to the surprise of the soul, only one angel was there, hardly doing
    anything. "this is the acknowledging section," st. peter told the soul. how is
    it that there is no work here?" st peter answered, "that's the sad thing.
    after people receive the blessings they asked for, very few send their
    acknowledgments."
    "how does one acknowledge god's blessing?"
    "simple," st. peter answered. "just say, 'thank you, lord'."

    thank you, lord, for that someone who sent me this message and thank you too for
    the chance to share it with others. amen

    Thanks for sharing this Brownie. When I asked how I should pray, I was told to start out by telling God what I was thankful for. Seems that when you start out by thanking Him, the worries of your heart seem to lessen.
