    AN ANGEL

    Every Sunday afternoon, after the morning service at the church,
    the Pastor and his eleven-year-old son would go out into their town and
    hand out Gospel Tracts.

    This particular Sunday afternoon, as it came time for the Pastor
    and his son to go to the streets with their tracts, it
    was very cold outside, as well as pouring down rain. The boy
    bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said; "OK dad, I'm
    ready."

    His Pastor dad asked, "Ready for what?"

    "Dad, it's time we gather our tracts together and go out."
    Dad responds, "Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring down
    rain."

    The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking "But Dad, aren't
    people still going to Hell, even though it's raining?"

    Dad answers, "Son, I am not going out in this weather."

    Despondently, the boy ask, "Dad, can I go? Please?"

    His father hesitated for a moment then said, "Son, you can go.

    Here are the tracts, be careful son."

    "Thanks Dad!" And with that, he was off and out into the rain.

    This eleven-year-old boy walked the streets of the town going door
    to door and handing everybody he met in the street a Gospel Tract.

    After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking,
    bone-chilled wet
    and down to his VERY LAST TRACT.

    He stopped on a corner and looked for someone to
    hand a tract to, but the streets were totally deserted.

    Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the
    sidewalk to the front door and rang the doorbell. He rang the bell, but
    nobody answered. He rang it again and again, but still no one answered.
    He waited but still no answer.

    Finally, this eleven-year-old trooper turned to leave, but
    something stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell
    and knocked loudly on the door with his fist.

    He waited, something holding him there on the front porch. He rang
    again and this time the door slowly opened.

    Standing in the doorway was a very sad-looking elderly lady. She
    softly asked, "What can I do for you son?"

    With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, this little
    boy said: "Ma'am, I'm sorry if I disturbed you, but I just want to tell
    you that
    *JESUS REALLY DOES LOVE YOU* and I came to give you my very last
    Gospel Tract which will tell you all about JESUS and His great LOVE."

    With that, he handed her his last tract and turned to leave She
    called to him as he departed. "Thank you, son! And God Bless You!"
    Well, the following Sunday morning in church Pastor Dad was in the
    pulpit. As the service began, he asked, " Does anybody have testimony or
    want to say anything?"

    Slowly, in the back row of the church, an elderly lady stood to her
    feet.

    As she began to speak, a look of glorious radiance came from her
    face, "No one in this church knows me.. I've never been here before.

    You see, before last Sunday I was not a Christian. My husband
    passed on some time ago, leaving me totally alone in this world. Last
    Sunday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, it was even more so in
    my heart that I came to the end of the line where I no longer had any
    hope or will to live.

    So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into the attic of
    my home. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof, then
    stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my
    neck.

    Standing on that chair, so lonely and broken hearted I was about to
    leap off, when suddenly the loud ringing of my doorbell downstairs
    startled me. I thought, "I'll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go
    away." I waited and waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get
    louder and more insistent, and then the person ringing also started
    knocking loudly. I thought to myself again, "Who on earth could this
    be? Nobody ever rings my bell or comes to see me."

    I loosened the rope from my neck and started for
    the front door, all the while the bell rang louder and louder. When
    I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes, for there
    on my front porch was the most radiant and angelic little boy I had ever
    seen in my life.

    His SMILE, oh, I could never describe it to you! The words that came
    from his mouth caused my heart that had long been dead, TO LEAP TO LIFE
    as he exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, "*Ma'am, I just came to tell
    you that JESUS REALLY DOES LOVE YOU." Then he gave me this Gospel
    Tract that I now hold in my hand.

    As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain, I
    closed my door and read slowly every word of this Gospel Tract. Then I
    went up to my attic to get my rope and chair. I wouldn't be needing them
    any more.

    You see I am now a Happy Child of the KING. Since the address of
    your church was on the back of this Gospel Tract; I have come here to
    personally say THANK YOU TO God's little angel who came just in the nick
    of time and by so doing, spared my soul from eternity in hell."

    There was not a dry eye in the church. And as shouts of praise and
    honor to THE KING resounded off the very rafters of the building.

    Pastor Dad descended from the pulpit to the front pew where the
    little angel was seated. He took his son in his arms and sobbed
    uncontrollably.
    Probably no church has had a more glorious moment, and probably
    this universe has never seen a Papa that was more filled with love &
    honor for his son... Except for One.
    This Father also allowed His Son to go out into a cold and dark
    world. He received His Son back with joy unspeakable, and as all of heaven
    Shouted praises and honor to The King, the Father sat His beloved Son on
    a throne far above all principality and power and every name that is
    named.

    Blessed are your eyes for reading this message. Don't let this
    message die, read it again and pass it to others.

    We will meet in heaven!

    Alot of times we don't get out and spread the news that Jesus loves everyone no matter who they are like we should. Ever chance we get we should tell someone about Jesus. What if this 11 year old boy didn't go out and give the tracks out and tell people that Jesus loves everyone the little old woman would of took her life. So you never know who you might touch by just letting them know there is someone that loves them know Matter who they are.Need to tell the everybody the new that Jesus is alive and has gone to prepare a place for that we may have life for everlasting. A place where there will never be any more sorrow or sicks don't have to worrier about our family and friends leaving us her on earth. where the family circle will never be broken and to me that would mean alot to never have to lose a friend or family member again.

    P.S. JESUS LOVES YOU !!!!!!
