Miracle of Love

Magnificent Promises

This Wednesday, I would like to share a story that was emailed to me.  This is a touching story of love and one of God’s miracles. The Miracle of Love by an Unknown Author – Story submitted by Cindy. I hope you enjoy it.

The miracle of love, true story!

Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling.

The new baby was going to be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in Mommy’s tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met her.

The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen, an active member of the Creek United Methodist Church in Morristown, Tennessee, USA.

In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every three, every minute. But serious complications arose during delivery and Karen found herself in hours of labor.

Finally, after a long struggle, Michael’s little sister was born. But she was in very serious condition. With a siren howling in the night, the ambulance rushed the infant to the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital, Knoxville, Tennessee.

The days inched by. The little girl got worse. The pediatrician had to tell the parents there was very little hope. Be prepared for the worst. Karen and her husband contacted a local cemetery about a burial plot. They had fixed up a special room in their house for their new baby they found themselves having to plan for a funeral.

Michael, however, kept begging his parents to let him see his sister. “I want to sing to her,” he kept saying.

Week two in intensive care looked as if a funeral would come before the week was over. Michael kept nagging about singing to his sister, but kids are never allowed in Intensive Care.

Karen decided to take Michael whether they liked it or not. If he didn’t see his sister right then, he may never see her alive. She dressed him in an oversized scrub suit and marched him into ICU. He looked like a walking laundry basket.

The head nurse recognized him as a child and bellowed, “Get that kid out of here now. No children are allowed.

The mother rose up strong in Karen and the usually mild-mannered lady glared steel-eyed right into the head nurse’s eyes, her lips a firm line, “He is not leaving until he sings to his sister.

Then Karen towed Michael to his sister’s bedside. He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle to live. After a moment, he began tossing. In the pure-hearted voice of a 3-year-old, Michael sang:

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when the skies are gray.

Instantly the baby girl seemed to respond. The pulse rate began to calm down and became steady.

Keep on singing, Michael,” encouraged Karen with tears in her eyes.

You never know, dear, how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.”

As Michael sang to his sister, the baby’s ragged, strained breathing became as smooth as a kitten’s purr. “Keep on singing, sweetheart.

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my arms”.

Michael’s little sister began to relax as rest, healing rest, seemed to sweep over her. “Keep singing, Michael.” Tears had now conquered the face of the bossy head nurse. Karen glowed.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. Please don’t take my sunshine away…

The next day… the very next day…the little girl was well enough to go home.

Never give up on the people you love. Love is so incredibly powerful.

  • The Woman’s Day Magazine called it, “the miracle of a brother’s song”.

  • The medical staff called it a miracle.

  • Karen called it a miracle of God’s love.

This is a true story that happened in 1992 in Tennessee, USA. The baby girl’s name is Marlee (picture on the right). As of 2012, Marlee is 20 years old, and she thinks she is normal like any other girl

A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones. Proverbs 17:22


Wow, what a great TRUE inspirational story!  God can use a 3-year-old child to heal a sick baby.  The true and pure love of this child song and the prayers of his parents, God used to heal his newborn sister. Praise God, what a miracle.

Our God still performs miracles every day. Is God performing miracles in your life? The greatest miracle that God does, is to transform a lost sinner into a child of God or Christian.     

In closing let me ask you a question. Have you experienced the miracle of God? Maybe you have never experienced the miracle of having a relationship with God. Or maybe you had the experience of that miracle but have lost that initial excitement you once had. If this sounds like you, there’s no better time to get a great relationship with God. 

Please… if you don’t know Christ or have fallen away, it’s time to make it right. It’s time to pray. Tell God you believe His Son Jesus paid for your sins and rose again. Tell God you are sorry and want to start living for Him. He will forgive your sins and mistakes and give you Everlasting Life with Him… and place His Spirit deep within your heart. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

I pray that God will truly Help and Bless you. If you would like for me to pray with you, please email me at Bob.L@magnificentPromises.com.
