Fishing Pole
A  Little Boy & His Fishing Pole

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 Sheriff.

"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."


And so.........

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


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.
