All My Blood..

I read this story many years ago - I wanted to share it with you today.. I hope you are as blessed as I was... and still am..


There was a little girl named Liza who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies, needed to combat the illness.

The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liza."

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded.

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice. "Will I start to dies right away?" Being young, the boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give her ALL his blood.

What a blessed story this is. Jesus gave all of his blood, for the sins of the whole world, that through him, we can have life everlasting. I also remember reading this some years ago. It watered my eyes then, and it did today. Thanks for this post. May God bless you
