After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; His body leaned forward and both hands rested on an object. The collapsed house had broken his back and head.
With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He hoped that this woman could still live. The cold, stiff body, however, told her she was dead in complete safety.
He and the rest of the team left this house and we’re going to search the next collapsed building. For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruined house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his had through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly, he screamed with excitement, “A child! There is a child!”
The whole team worked together; carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 months old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice for saving her son. When her house fell, she used her body to protect her son. The little boy slept peacefully when the team leader took him.
The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside the blanket. There was a text message on the screen. It said, “If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.”
This cell phone was passing around from one hand to another. Everybody that read the message wept.
“If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.”
For some, the idea of losing one’s life to save another is indisputable.. Her love is eternal, and her protection is endless. She dies knowing that life will continue, thanks to her sacrifice.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”- John 12:24
