It was suffocating stench smoke that awake Henry in the middle of the night. He grabbed his baby from his bed and woke up Danny, his elder son, and led him by the hand out of the house.
In the middle of the commotion the elder boy screamed, “my teddy bear is burning” and ran back into the house. The flames rose while Danny was getting his teddy bear and trapped him inside.
With smoke blinding his vision, all Danny could do was scream near the window, “Dad, Help me Please Dad Help.”
The father cried back, “Jump out of the window, do not worry, I will catch you.” Danny yelled back, “But I can’t see you Dad.”
The father cried very loudly, “But I can see you. Trust me, Jump!”
Danny finally closed his eyes and jumped into his waiting father’s arms.
Many a time You called to me;
Jump, for My arms are waiting for you.
Your eyes are upon me O Lord,
And Your hands are gentle with me.
Let me leap into your arms,
For You to carry me into Your fatherly bosom.
A visit from Outer space
