Here's another from Theresa's friend....sorry yall i cant send it to the regular email. Isnt it amazing how much you can do, when you just have a little FAITH? Hope all is well,

Sada S

>>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 Rexall's

>>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 about 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 replied 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."

>>"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 law.. 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 to see is 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.

>>MY OATH TO YOU...

>>When you are sad.....I will dry your tears.
>>When you are scared.....I will comfort your fears.

>>When you are worried.....I will give you hope.

>>When you are confused.....I will help you cope.

>>And when you are lost....And can't see the light, I shall be your

>>beacon.....Shining ever so bright.

>>This is my oath.....I pledge till the end.

>>Why you may ask?.....Because you're my friend.

>>Signed: GOD
