If you think these are an amazing use of dirt.
Look in the mirror, and see what the Lord
did with a little dust.

Tess was a precocious eight year old when she
heard her Mom and Dad talking about her little
brother, Andrew. All she knew was that he was
very sick and they were completely out of money.
They were moving to an apartment complex next
month because Daddy didn't have the money for
the doctor's bills and our house. Only a very
costly surgery could save him now and it was
looking like there was no-one to loan them
the money.

She heard Daddy say to her tearful Mother with
whispered desperation, "Only a miracle can save
him now."

Tess went to her bedroom and pulled a glass
jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet.
She poured all the change out on the floor and
counted it carefully. Three times, even. The
total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here
for mistakes. Carefully placing the coins back
in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped
out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to
Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief
sign above the door. She waited patiently for the
pharmacist to give her some attention but he was
too busy at this moment.

Tess twisted her feet to
make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her
throat with the most disgusting sound she could
muster. No good. Finally she took a quarter from
her jar and banged it on the glass counter.

That did it! "And what do you want?" the pharmacist
asked in an annoyed tone of voice. I'm talking to
my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in
ages, "he said without waiting for a reply to his
question. "Well, I want to talk to you about my
brother," Tess answered back in the same annoyed
tone. "He's really, really sick...and I want to
buy a miracle."

"I beg your pardon?" said the pharmacist.
"His name is Andrew" Continued the girl,
"and he has something bad growing
inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle
can save him now. So how much does a miracle cost?"
"We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm
sorry but I can't help you,"the pharmacist said,
softening a little.

"Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't
enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me how much
it costs."

The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man.
He stooped down and asked the little girl, "What
kind of a miracle does you brother need?" "I don't
know," Tess replied with her eyes welling up. "I
just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs
an operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I
want to use my money." "How much do you have?"
asked the man from Chicago. "One dollar and eleven
cents," Tess answered barely audibly. "And it's all
the money I have, but I can get some more if I
need to.

"Well, what a coincidence," smiled the man. "A
dollar and eleven cents - the exact price of a
miracle for little brothers." He took her money
in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her
mitten and said "Take me to where you live. I want
to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's
see if I have the kind of miracle you need."

That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong,
a surgeon, specializing in neuro-surgery.
The operation was completed without charge and it wasn't
long until Andrew was home again and doing well.

Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain
of events that had led them to this place. "That
surgery," her Mom whispered, "was a real miracle.
I wonder how much it would have cost?" Tess smiled.
She knew exactly how much a miracle cost ...one
dollar and eleven cents.

A miracle is not the suspension of natural law,
but the operation of a higher law.
