Santa Grants Last Wish To Terminally Ill Child Who Dies In His Arms

For the last nine years, Eric Schmitt-Matzen  has dressed up as Santa to spread  joy around  Kanoxville, Tennessee.  A few weeks ago, a nurse called him from a nearby hospital and she said there is a very sick 5 year old boy who wanted to see Santa Claus. Soon he rushed in to the hospital where he met the boy’s family and gave them a toy for him. Schmitt Matzen sat down on his bed and had a pep talk. He gave him the present but the boy was so weak to open it. When he saw what was inside, he flashed a big smile and laid his head back down. Santa hugged the boy as the child died in his arms.

Verse of the Day

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NIV)
