A man died and his newly arrived soul in Heaven was met by the Saint in Heaven. The saint took the soul for a tour around Heaven.
Both of them walked side by side inside a large workroom filled with angels.
The Saint 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 the people of the world.
They walked again until they reached the 2nd section, and the Saint told the soul, “This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are packed and delivered to the persons who asked for them down on earth.”
The soul saw how busy it was. There were so many angels working in that room since so many blessings 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 stayed there idly, doing nothing. “This is the Acknowledging Section,” the Saint told the soul.
“How is it that, there is no work here?” “That’s the sad thing,” the Saint answered.
“After the people receive the blessings they asked for, very few send their acknowledgments”.
“How does one acknowledge God’s blessing?” asked the soul in wonder. “Simple,” the Saint answered,
“Just say, “Thank you, God.”
This weekend, just acknowledge all your blessings, be grateful, just say Thank You God and Stay blessed forever.
