God has given us so many Blessings. Everywhere your eye can see there are Blessings for us to enjoy. Such Blessings include the sun to warm our skin, the breeze to blow our hair, wonderful smells to enlighten our senses, stories to warms our hearts, music to move our feet, and food to speak to our souls.
Why on earth would anyone think of themselves as anything less than rich? The answer is simple. There are many differentiations of the term rich. For example, the definition of rich is to have a great deal of money or assets. According to the Wall Street Journal, a net worth of $1.4 Million will put you in the top 5% of Americans. Yet, the wealthy today view this figure as chump change. This just goes to show you we all view being rich differently.
I decided to take this to Facebook by posting the question, “Are you Rich?” I assumed everyone would discuss their current financial status. I expected comments such as, “I’m in-between jobs, my bills are skyrocketing, or I’m barely making ends meet”. To my amazement, everyone discussed how rich they are in life.
Here are just a few of the comments:Betty M. L. I am as rich as can be because of "GODS" love...With His love who needs material things...He provides all I need or want...♥
Colleen B. The richest! (2) Phenomenal kids & a husband that sings first thing in the morning. Who could want 4 anything more?
Sheila H. I may not be rich as far as money goes far from it but I have a lot of love. To give and that is given to me. I am the oldest of 8 siblings and I have 8 children of my own with 4 grandchildren and 1 on the way. So I know without a shadow of a doubt all my kids and grandchildren love me and I love them back! :))
Junior A. Not rich at all. Live week to week. But as long as I have God in my life I'm the richest man in the world.
Robbie P. I'm rich in blessings of family and success. Not so much with money, but that doesn't bother me.
Michael S. I am Rich in so many ways; God blessed me with a Great family as I was growing up and now I have a Great wife and some friends who love me.... Yes I am rich.....But most of all God sent His Son to die for me.....How RICH I am!!!!!!!
Danshell W. Even if I reflect back to my impoverished childhood I can say that I AM and Always have been Rich. There are so many other things that can add WEALTH to your life and they have nothing to do with money. I feel Very Rich. I watch the World News also which only helps me realize just how RICH I am. Be Blessed All!! :-D
MsChris R. I have a roof over my head, full frig, transportation, good people in my life, great family, ppl that love me/that I love too, great health, mentally strong, spiritually grounded, aging very well... I am very blessed to be so rich =D
Jeff B. Yes I am! I am rich because of the love of my wife, family, and friends. It doesn't get any better than that!
Chrissy E. I am very rich. I wake up every morning and put my feet on a floor of a home. I go to my fridge and eat food that I don't worry what I will do when it runs out. I take my daughter to a school with her in nice clothes and shoes on her feet. I get into a car and drive where I need to go... I'm not walking. I am rich because God has blessed me. Be blessed to be a blessing to others. Americans forget just how rich we are.... I am rich with love and freedom, opportunity. :)
hope your having a great week
For the record, I’m not saying money doesn’t matter because it does. If you do not have a suitable income you would not have a roof over your head, clothes on your back or food on the table. I personally seek the need to relax and enjoy life with what I presently have. Learn to claim your present moment by fully enjoying the richness of what’s all around you. It’s been there all along. Have you noticed it?
