A Very Touching Story......
4/7/2007 1:04:39 AM

******************************************

A Very Touching Story

"When you're down to nothing, God is up to something."

This is beautiful! Try not to cry.

******************************************


She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said: "How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him ?"

The surgeon said, "I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn't make it."

Sally said, "Why do little children get cancer ? Doesn't God care any more? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?"

The surgeon asked, "Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the university."

Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good bye to son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.

"Would you like a lock of his hair ?" the nurse asked.

Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally.

The mother said, "It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for Study. He said it might help somebody else. "I said no at first, but Jimmy said, 'Mom, I won't be using it after I die. Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom." She went on, "My Jimmy had a heart of gold. Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could."

Sally walked out of Children's Mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with Jimmy's belongings on the seat beside her in the car.

The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house.

She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son's room.

She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them. She laid down across his bed and hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.

It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter.

The letter said:"Dear Mom, I know you're going to miss me; but don't think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to say "I Love You". I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day. Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, that's okay with me. He can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn't like the same things us boys do. You'll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know. Don't be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything. The angels are so cool. I love to watch them fly. And, you know what? Jesus doesn't look like any of his pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself took me to see GOD ! And guess what, Mom ? I got to sit on God's knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important. That's when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything. But I already knew that wasn't allowed. Well, you know what Mom ? God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter. I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you.

God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him.

'Where was He when I needed him ?' "God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He always is with all His children. Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I've written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn't that cool? I have to give God His pen back now. He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I'm sure the food will be great.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don't hurt anymore. The cancer is all gone. I'm glad because I couldn't stand that pain anymore and God couldn't stand to see me hurt so much, either. That's when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery! How about that?

Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me.

Hey Brian,

Don't cry you say!   That is one of those stories you don't know if you should cry for sadness because her son is gone or cry of joy because he is with God.  Great story Brian and thanks for sharing it.  God is always up to something.  He has a plan!  :)

Brian you seem to find the most uplifting and heart touching things to share; thank you.

It seems that people don't recognize just how closely children fit into God's plans until they leave us suddenly.

When my little one decided to go, he was only four months old and you would not think had time to touch many lives.

At his services there were more than a hundred people who came up to me to introduce themselves to Jonathon's mom.

His 5 year old sister not understanding death, acted as sort of hostess to her friends, taking them up to the little casket to show them her "brother baby". I don't know what she told them, but they had very serious 5 year old conversations and then went skipping off to play.

It was strangely beautiful. His passing brought people to church who had not been to one in years.

Hi Joe!  :-)

I know what you mean.......you almost hate to read stuff like this @ times....because they pull at those strings in our heart that we try to keep protected.

God is always up to something.........

I may not always understand Him......but I do always trust Him.

Hi Joyce!  :-)

Thank you for sharing your story.  Sometimes it's hard for me to understand why God allows certain things.......sometimes.....a lot of times actually......things make no sense at all.

My good friend Kathy claims that I am tough as nails......LOL.  But in reality - I'm a big softie.  Whenever I have something come across me that touches me in a positive way.....my first wish is to share this feeling of joy with someone else.

Although this posting is a little different - it still touched my heart in a certain way - and I really contiplated not sharing this because it dealt with the death of a child.

However, it does offer a beam of light......an inspirational song of hope and happiness....and it offers the reader a chance to look @ the world, if even only for a blink of an eye.....too see things from the innocent view of a child's eyes.  How blessed they truly are......

Many wishes for a blessed Easter!
