Dear Y.B.M.:

At this writing, I am sitting in my vehicle in front of a United Parcel Service office in Hamden, Connecticut, waiting for them to open so that I can pick up an important package.

By the way, so that you will know, due to the nature of my work, I travel a lot, so I will be writing these letters from all over the United States. I was born in Brooklyn, New York, mostly raised in New Bern, North Carolina, and at this writing I reside in Atlanta, Georgia.

I trust that you have come to know your Creator, God, by believing in His Son, Jesus Christ as your Saviour. That is, indeed, the most important thing that you will ever do in your life. Congratulations, if you have made that all important decision. If perhaps you have not done so, please do not procrastinate, for tomorrow, as they say, is not promised you.

Now, in this letter, I would like to share with you how it is that you can obtain the coveted blessings of God in this life. Those who are genuinely happy and successful in this life are those who have been blessed by God. You may ask, "well, what is a blessing, anyway?" I've heard older folks in my family use the term often, and I myself used to wonder, "What is a blessing?" Well, according to Webster's Third New International Dictionary, it means:

To make happy: give good fortune or satisfaction to; confer prosperity upon…

According to the Nelson Bible Dictionary blessed means: God blesses people by granting prosperity or well-being in the form of both physical and spiritual grace.

And according to the New Westminster Dictionary of the Bible, blessed or blessing means: To bestow divine favor and confer divine benefits. Favors, advantages, conferred by God, and bringing pleasure or happiness in their lives.
