My Heaven Experience


Back in 03, I found out I had a brain tumor. I was 8. I didn’t know what to think of it. My parents were both terrified. They sent me to children’s hospital in St. Louis. On our way there I passed out in the back seat. I was having a seizure. My step dad was speeding to get me there faster. When we arrived they had to do an emergency incision on my head to relieve pressure off my brain. The doctor snipped a blood vessel. I died.

While all this was going on I found myself in a dark area. I spotted light ahead so I followed it. I then ran into a staircase that went up, so I followed it. As soon as I made it to the top I saw my dad and Him standing at the gates waiting for me. The gates opened for me and I ran to my dad to give him a hug. He was crying with excitement to see his little boy, I was so very happy to see him. My dad passed away in 2000. But I remember my dad pleading not to take me that I was to young.

So as He and my father were talking I wandered off to a big table, I look down. I see me covered in blood. I was scared. I asked, “Am I going to be okay?” He said, “Yes my son I’m making some changes and I’ll send you on your way.” My dad was so happy, but he started crying. I walked up to him and told him, “Don’t worry daddy He said I was going to be okay.” I wrapped my arms around him an told him I loved him, he said he loved me too. As I pulled back my dad’s face was fading away. Everything turned dark again.

I woke up in a hospital bed. I look over and my mom is crying. I look up and there’s Angel’s surrounding my room. I told my mom not to worry that They told me everything was going to be okay. She freaked and said, “Sweetheart nobody else is in this room, who told you that?” With excitement I said the Angel’s in the room mom!” She freaked out. Ever since then I’ve had two more tumor surgeries and three shunt surgeries.

I am on my fifth year of college and I’ve earned six years free. Two through high school, A+ program and I won a $4,000 scholarship doing competition through Ozarks technical community college in construction. I suffer short-term memory loss and I now have epilepsy. But, I don’t like to put dis in front of my ability.

I love sharing my story because it inspires other people that someone like me could do such great things. Every time I tell it, I feel a cold breeze through my body, and I know it’s my dad. I love you dad.
