Letter To God

I got this from my e-mail and this is great! In fact I had a good laugh after reading it. It really made my day! They said that laughter is the best medicine. I agree with that. It's time to laugh folks. Read on.

There was a man who worked for the post office whose job was to proces s
all the mail with illegible addresses. One day, a letter came addressed
in a shaky handwriting to "God" with no actual address. He thought he
should open it to see what it was about. The letter read:

Dear God,

I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday
someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had
until my next pension payment. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had
invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have
nothing to buy food with, have no family to turn to, and you are my only

Can you help me? Please, hear my prayer.



The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other
workers. Each one dug into their wallet and managed to come up with a
few dollars.

By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which he put into
an envelope and sent back to the woman's return address. The rest of the
day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner
she would be able to share with her friends.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the
same old lady to "God". All the workers gathered around while the letter
was opened.

It read:

Dear God,

How can I ever thank you for what you did for me? I now truly believe in
God, and in Miracles. Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a
glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told them
of your wonderful gift.. By the way, I noticed there was $4 missing. I
think it might have been those bastards at the post office.
