A Little Boy & His
This true story is about someone in Indiana
and I couldn't resist passing it on....
gives one pause for thought....
Howard County Sheriff Jerry Marr got a disturbing call one Saturday afternoon a few months ago.
His 6-year-old grandson
Mikey had been hit by a car while fishing with his dad. The father and son were near a bridge by the Kokomo Reservoir when a woman lost control of her car, slid off the bridge and hit Mikey at a rate of
about 50 mph.
Sheriff Marr had seen the results of accidents like this and feared the worst. When he got to Saint JosephHospital, he rushed through the emergency room to find Mikey conscious
and in fairly good spirits.
"Mikey, what happened?" Sheriff Marr asked.
Mikey replied, "Well, Papaw, I was fishin' with Dad, and some lady runned me over, I flew into a mud
puddle, and broke my fishin' pole and I didn't get to catch no fish!"
As it turned out, the impact propelled Mikey
about 500 feet, over a few trees and an embankment and in the middle of a mud puddle. His only injuries were to his right femur bonewhich had broken in two places. Mikey had surgery to place pins in
his leg. Otherwise the boy is fine.
Since all the boy could talk about was that his fishing pole was broken, the Sheriff went out to Wal-mart and bought him a new one while he was in surgery so
he could have it
when he came out.
The next day the Sheriff sat with Mikey to keep him company in the hospital. Mikey was enjoying his new fishing pole and talked about when he could go
fishing again as he cast into the trash can.
When they were alone, Mikey matter-of-factly said, "Papaw, did you know Jesus is real?"
"Well," the Sheriff replied, a little startled.
"Yes, Jesus is real to all who believe in him and love him in their hearts."
"No," said Mikey. "I mean Jesus is REALLY real."
"What do you mean?" asked the Sheriff.
"I know he's real 'cause I saw him, "said Mikey,still casting into the trash can.
"You did?" said the
"Yep," said Mikey. "When that lady runned me over and broke my fishing pole, Jesus caught me in his arms and laid me down in the mud puddle."
GIVES YOU GOOSE BUMPS DOESN'T IT!?
I asked the Lord to bless you
As I prayed for you today
To guide you and protect you
As you go along your way
His love is always with you
His promises are true
And when we give Him all our cares
You know He will see us through
So when the road you're traveling on seems difficult at best
Just remember I'm here praying
And GOD WILL DO THE REST.
Pass this on to people you want God tobless and don't forget to send it back to the onewho asked God to bless you first.
There is so much good in the worst of us,
And so much bad in the best of us,
That it behooves any of us,
To find fault with the rest of us.
