when you're down to nothing, God's up to something

CENTER]this is one of the coolest things ive ever read!
*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

*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

*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
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 t his letter. I
think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off
to you. God said for m e to gi ve yo u 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 Jes us 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.*
