Miracles

A TRUE EXAMPLE OF A MIRACLE FROM GOD….


A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet.

She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to
be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes.

Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her
way 6 blocks to Recalls Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief sign above the door.

She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was too busy at
this moment. Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing…She cleared her throat with the most
disgusting sound she could muster. No good, finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That
did it!

'And what do you want?' the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice. I'm talking to my brother
from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages,' he said without waiting for a reply to his question.

'Well, I want to talk to you a bout my brother,' Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. 'He's
really; really sick ... and I want to buy a miracle.' I beg your pardon?' said the pharmacist.

'His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a
miracle can save him now. So how much does a miracle cost?'

'We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I can't help you,' the pharmacist said,
softening a little. 'Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me how
much it costs.'

The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man He stooped down and asked the little girl, 'What
> kind of a miracle does your brother need?'

'I don't know,' Tess re plied with her eyes welling up. I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he
needs an operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money.'

'How much do you have?' asked the man from Chicago 'One dollar and eleven cents,' Tess
answered barely audibly And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to.'

'Well, what a coincidence,' smiled the man, “A dollar and eleven cents…the exact price of a miracle
for little brothers.”‘ He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said 'Take me to where
you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you need.'

That well dressed man was Dr Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed free of charge and it wasn’t long until Andrew was home again and doing well.

Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place. 'That surgery,' her Mom whispered
'was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost?'

Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle cost….one dollar and eleven cents....plus the faith of a little child.

In our lives, we never know how many miracles we will need.

A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the operation of a higher l a w.

I know you'll keep the ball moving!

Here it goes. Throw it back to someone who means something to you!

A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end. It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends. But the
treasure inside for you…..is to see the treasure of friendship you've granted to me.

Today I pass the friendship ball to you. Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you.





Driving in the rain


I wonder how many people know about this ~ A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago and totaled her car. A resident of Kilgore, Texas she was traveling between Gladewater & Kilgore. It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and literally flew through the air. She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence!

When she explained to the highway patrolman what had happened he told her something that every driver should know - NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON. She thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.

But the highway patrolman told her that if the cruise control is on when your car begins to hydro-plane and your tires lose contact with the pavement, your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off like an airplane.

She told the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.

The patrolman said this warning should be listed, on the driver's seat sun-visor -
NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY,
along with the airbag warning. We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and drive a safe speed - but we don't tell them to use the cruise control only when the pavement is dry.

The only person the accident victim found, who knew this (besides the patrolman) was a man who had had a similar accident, totaled his car and sustained severe injuries.
NOTE: Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE) will not allow you to set the cruise control when the windshield wipers are on.

If you send this to 15 people and only one of them doesn't know about this then it was all worth it. You might have saved a life
