Why do I or you have to count blessings? Do we hear it right? Count your blessing?
There is a big disparity between being fulfilled and being rich.
You can be filthy rich and still you are not fulfilled. On the other hand, you can also be very fulfilled by just having a decent income. And still you can be very rich and very fulfilled.
The wall that divided richness and fulfillment can be how grateful we are today. Counting our blessings is not just a matter of 1, 2, 3, and so on. It is not just a matter of numbers. It is more on how our feeling of gratitude that we are blessed indeed. That there is someone greater than us who loves us. That there is someone greater than us. Someone who in many ways has been wishing for our prosperity, success, and happiness. Someone who can fulfill our deepest longings and emptiness in the deepest recesses of our hearts and souls.
And this someone can only be acknowledged if we count our blessings. That I count my blessings. And you in turn count your blessing.
