What Really Happens in Heaven

This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen and is so  true:  

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom  filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the  first section and said, ' This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.  '  

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with  so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous  paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.  

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.  

The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked  for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them." I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being  packaged for delivery to Earth.  

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This  is the Acknowledgment Section, my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed."  How  is it that there is no work going on here? ' I asked.  

"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the  blessings that they asked for, very few send back  acknowledgments"  

"How does one acknowledge God's blessings? " I asked..  

"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord.  "

"What blessings should they acknowledge?"  I asked.  

"If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead 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, you are among the top  8% of the world ' s wealthy. "  

"And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."  

"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness .. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. "  

"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the  loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the  pangs of starvation ... You are ahead of 700 million  people in the world."

"If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment,  arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more  blessed than, three billion people in the world."
"If your parents are still alive and still married ..you are  very rare."  

"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and  despair......."
