A little boy meets a man, or so he thinks?
|A little boy stands with his family in their Sunday best. The warmth from the bright sun and chill in the breeze makes for a surreal day. The little boy begins to rock back and forth, then side to side as he tires. He comes to rest on the leg of the man next to him. The man reaches down and places his hand on the young child's head and says “ Its OK Joseph, rest on me if you're tired.” The little boys eyes expand in bewilderment. How did you know my name, he asks? “I know everything” says the man with a gentle voice. The little boy baffled and shaking his head replied “Mommy said Only God knows everything,” in such a tone that his mother had to shush him. Knowing this can't be, the little boy bitterly questioned the man “Why are you here?” “I'm here for Anna” the man spoke gently. The little boy starting to sniffle and rubbing his eye with one hand says “That's my sister, that's why I'm here.” The man quietly says “I know, I'm here to bring her home.” Fuddled by what the man had said the little boy replies “We can't take her home, she died.” The man whispers” I know.” “Mommy says Anna is going to heaven today” the little boy tells the man. His curiosity now getting the best of him. He turns to look at the man only to see a beautiful blue sky with innocent clouds, and a soft voice whispers, “That's where I'm taking her.”|
