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



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 lay down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.

It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Lying 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

Please Re post this and within the hour you will have caused a multitude of believers to pray to God for each other. Then sit back and feel the Holy Spirit work in your life for doing what you know God loves

This is so Beautiful as I needed to see this as I lost my wife eleven months ago. Each day that goes by I know she is healed from all her hurts and is with my dad and mom and they are sharing many things together. Just knowing she is with Our Lord makes me feel good as one day I will see her again.

I understand what you're saying. My husband passed away 2 1/2 yrs ago and it feels like yesterday. I'd like to find a letter like this from him. I know he's in Heaven and is young, healthy, and no one else can ever hurt him again. I miss him everyday and will always love him. I'm looking forward to the day that he meets me on the road and we walk in together. He wrote me a little note when we started going together and I kept it safely for all those years. I haven't been able to find it and no one would be interested in it. I would love to find that little note again. He was telling me that he loved me and if was changing my mind about us, we'd just have to sit down and discuss it until I changed it back.

I held my full term baby boy who died 5 minutes before birth in my arms and I felt God take his soul from his body. It was so very hard-but I knew where my baby went=directly to God. Which helped ease my pain and knowing some day-OH ya Some day-I get to see him again.

Made me cry, so beautiful. But why is there no real stories of this.. All these unanswered deaths, diseases etc. How do we really know they are now pain free, happy, looking down on us? How do we really know where souls go and if they do go?

I lost my son to AML cancer, He was 17 when he died in my arms and I closed his eyes. That was in 2003. This letter is written to a T about me, except the only things I received are letters like these showing up on my computer. I never blamed God, I thank him for the awesome 17 years that I had with my son. He was a gift that I will always love.

I understand as well. My brother overdosed after being clean for so long in may....he passed June 3rd and was only 21. I keep wrestling with God, wondering where He is or how could He let this happen...we had just prayed that God would protect Sean from relasping and overdose...30 minutes before we got the call. This article made me cry so much. I hope Sean is free from the pain of addiction too.

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. He would have been 97. He died in 1988. He had Cancer. He knew he had Cancer. After he said his good by's to my sister and myself, he prayed for about 5 or 6 hours. He died a peaceful death. Never said a word, just made the sign of the cross. He was a man of great faith. I learned a lot from him.

I lost my dear mum a week before Christmas, she died after having a brain tumour, and was in a Coma for many many days.. I never got to hold her hand and let her know I was by her side nor able to whisper in her ear and say "good-bye mum I love you with all I breathe" ... It totally tore my life apart... The hurt I have is still so raw and everyday is as hard as the last... I would do ANYTHING just to have a letter like that from her so I know she is happy and with her parents and sister, it would help so much for me to nice on.... The story of the mothers' letter was very beautiful..

How precious:) It is a comfort to have this insight...a little window into the heart of God. Sometimes we thing we that we know what God does and does not allow. I am a firm believer in the impossible. I have seen God move in mysterious ways. We cannot put Him in a box and tell Him what he can and cannot do..He is God, and his mercies are forever...His love is boundless. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Just imagine what we could see, if we would see life through the faith of a child:)

I lost my husband 7/17/11 from complication due to liver cancer, he suffered so much for more than 7 months....I was actually blessed to be in the room 3 days before he went to be with the Lord when "someone" I could not see came to talk to him (I believe it was the Lord or one of his Angels) when this "someone" left my husband was more relaxed and more at peace than he had ever been...I knew it wouldn't be long after that....over the next 3 days he slowly went inside himself and became unresponsive and at 9:55 am on 7/17/11 he lost his long and difficult war with that horrible, horrible cancer....he is with me everyday, sometimes I'm even lucky to get a glimpse of him wandering through the house or feel him lay down next to me in bed at night, I know he is happier than he has ever been and that he is waiting for the day I am lucky enough to come and be with him and all of my furry four legged babies that have gone before me...that day will be my true blessing.....

I also found a letter from my son a while I was cleaning his room and pulled out his bed and found the letter stuffed down on the side of the bed . He said he was sorry for any times his misbehaved ( He was the best kid ) and sorry he had to go and said for his little brother to be good and how much he loved us . It was written in crayon and he was 13 and we never expected him to die but he woke up sick and was on life support that day
