Yawning, Marcia got up out of bed and pulled back the heavy curtain, "It's snowing!"

Large, fluffy snowflakes fell in the gentle breeze in the back yard.

Grunting, Bob pushed the power button on the television remote. As the TV blared on, 'Winter Storm Warning' scrolled across the screen in bold, red letters.

The meteorologist's voice ominously proclaimed: "A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the following counties...."

"Oh, I can't stand this!" Bob barked back at the TV, "It's just gonna be a couple of inches. I'm so sick of these 'chicken little' weathermen!"

"'The sky is falling, the sky is falling!'" Marcia said, mockingly.

"Very funny!"

An advertisement popped on the screen and Marcia reacted, "I wish I could get new shoes for Christmas..."

Bob grunted, "Yeah, right...."

Bob got dressed, went outside and started shoveling a path toward the street.

Just as Bob was lifting the shovel to throw some snow, a school bus turned the corner near his home.

One window near the back of the bus was open.

As the bus passed, a pair of sparkly dress shoes flew through the window and landed near his feet in the fresh-fallen snow.

"Hey!" Bob yelled, as a red-headed girl stuck her head out and gleefully waved.

Bob picked up the shoes, and immediately noticed a gold post-it-note attached to one shoe with a shiny paperclip.

In red-and-green writing the note read,
"Merry Christmas, Grandma. Love, Heather"

"Marcia!!!" Bob yelled toward the house, grumbling. "…little monsters…"

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
