The Angel who visited a girl with leukemia

Today is the eve before Christmas, when billions of people across the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who humbled himself and became incarnate as a man.

Why?

Because He loves us so.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16

Christmas Eve is an appropriate time for a reminder of His unimaginable, unfathomable, infinite love for us — each and every one of us — despite ourselves.

In an episode of AOL’s new series “Help From Beyond,” Bella recounts an encounter she had one night in her hospital room.

Mere days before Bella’s 15th birthday, she was diagnosed with leukemia. Lying in her hospital bed, knowing that childhood leukemia is deadly, Bella was frightened and in despair.

At 1:02 am, a male nurse walked in with a cup of ice. He wrote his name on the blackboard, “Wahkan,” and listened to Bella pouring her heart out. Wahkan comforted the gravely ill girl, then told her: “It’s not your time.”

The next morning, Bella asked her female nurse “Where is Wahkan?”

The nurse told Bella she was her nurse last night, and there were no male nurses in that hospital.

But Bella had not imagined her encounter. The plastic cup that had contained ice was still there by her bed. So was the word “Wahkan” on the blackboard.

Later that morning, Bella’s doctors were stunned that her blood counts had drastically improved and told her the leukemia would go into remission in a week.

Wahkan is a Native American boy name, which means “Sacred.” The name Wahkan is not among the top 1,000 most common names in the United States for the last 128 years.

In other words, Bella could not have made up that name.

Still don’t believe Bella?

My husband had a similar experience while waiting in pre-op for his cardiac surgery. I’ll tell his story on Sunday!

Liberal HuffPo Recruits Child Labor As Bloggers

Arianna Huffington

Adam Clark Estes reports for The Atlantic Wire, Sep. 9, 2011, that Huffington Post, which doesn’t pay their bloggers, is now recruiting teenagers as young as 13 to blog for free.

Jeff Bercovici at Forbes reports that AOL’s Huffington Post Media Group is gearing up for the launch of its next vertical, HuffPost High School, which “will be unique in that it will be the only site produced by minors: Its editor, wunderkind Myles Miller, is only 17, and it will feature the work of teenage bloggers.”

Already, when AOL acquired HuffPost back in February this year for a reported $315 million, one of HuffPost’s unpaid bloggers, Jonathan Tasini, got so angry he initiated a class action lawsuit against The Huffington Post over alleged labor law violations related to their blogs.

A former president of the National Writers Union compared the effort to child labor and called Arianna a couple of bad things. “I assume for the no-ethics, no-morals owner the next step after middle school students is importing work from surplus slave labor in China,” he told Bercovici who raised a few of his own concerns about privacy. “Should teenagers who can’t legally vote, drink or have sex be allowed to decide for themselves what to publish in a place where it could potentially be read by millions of people?”

Hmm… Aren’t the Left supposed to care about workers — their pay and their rights — and about “the children”?

Warning!!!! And Yikes!!!!

This morning the Muslim Brotherhood warned the United States that if United States meddling in Egypt continued, they intend to cut off America’s supply of 7-11, and Motel 6 managers.

If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T, and AOL customer service reps.

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more presidents, either.

   It’s gonna get ugly, people.

If any of you had any idea how ridiculous the title is, well let’s just say I’ve had lots of probs lately. Anyway I have been meaning to post this for a while. Found it on AOL a few weeks back. It’s like 20 favorite programs for your PC. I am using a couple. Take a look maybe there is something you can use. I am not endorsing any product, cause we don’t do that. Just passing on something I found and maybe somebody can find something they can use.

 OH, by the way, they are all free programs
