Howard County Sheriff Jerry Marr got a

     disturbing call one Saturday afternoon a

     few months ago.  His 6-year-old grandson

     Mikey had been hit by a car while fishing in

     Greentown with his dad.  The father and

     son were near a bridge by the Kokomo

     Reservoir when a woman lost control of her

     car, slid off the bridge and hit Mikey at a rate

     of about 50 mph.

        Sheriff Marr had seen the results of accidents

     like this and feared the worst.  When he got

     to Saint Joseph Hospital, he rushed through

     the emergency room to find Mikey conscious

     and in fairly good spirits considering what had

     happened to him.

        "Mikey, what happened?" Sheriff Marr asked.

        Mikey replied, "Well, Papaw, I was fishin' with

     Dad, and some lady runned me over, I flew into

     a mud puddle, and broke my fishin' pole and I

     didn't get to catch no fish!"

        As it turned out, the impact propelled Mikey

     about 500 feet, over a few trees and an

     embankment and in the middle of a mud

     puddle.  His only injuries were to his right

     femur bone which had broken in two places.

     Mikey had surgery to place pins in his leg.

     Otherwise the boy is fine.

        Since all the boy could talk about was that his

     fishing pole was broken, the Sheriff went out

     to Wal-Mart and bought him a new one while

     he was in surgery so he could have it when he

     came out.

        The next day the Sheriff sat with Mikey to keep

     him company in the hospital.  Mikey was enjoying

     his new fishing pole and talked about when he

     could go fishing again as he cast into the trash can.

        When they were alone, Mikey, just a matter-of-fact,

     said, "Papaw, did you know Jesus is real?"

     "Well," the Sheriff replied, a little startled.

     "Yes, Jesus is real to all who believe in him

     and love him in their hearts."

        "No," said Mikey.  "I mean Jesus is REALLY real."

      "What do you mean?" asked the Sheriff.

        "I know he's real 'cause I saw him." said Mikey,

     still casting into the trash can.

        "You did?" said the Sheriff.

        "Yep," said Mikey.  "When that lady runned me

     over and broke my fishing pole, Jesus caught me

     in his arms and laid me down in the mud puddle."
