When 7-year-old Jase wanted to send a birthday card to Daddy in Heaven, his mom, Teri Copland, never expected a reply. But a special angel at the postal service went the extra mile to make sure the little boy got a reply!
Little Jase from Scotland lost his dad in 2014. And even though his father isn’t with him anymore here on earth, the sweet 7-year-old believes “everyone should get a card on their birthday, even if they don’t get a present.”
So, when his late father’s birthday rolled around, Jase wanted to send a birthday card to Daddy in Heaven.
“Jase remembers his dad and is very like him in personality,” mom Teri Copland explained. “He loves looking at his pictures and reading the stories his dad’s friends have written in a memory book.”
Tender-hearted Jase picked out a card for Daddy and popped it in the mailbox. On the envelope, he wrote a special request for the postman:
“Mr Postman, Can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday? Thanks.”
That could have been the end of it. But thankfully, God made sure Jase’s letter wound up in the hands of one of his special angels here on earth!
Special Reply To Boy’s Birthday Card To Daddy in Heaven
A few weeks after Jase mailed the card, Teri got quite the surprise when she checked the mailbox. A letter from the Royal Mail waited for little Jase!
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to contact you about how we succeeded in the delivery of your letter to your dad in heaven. This was a difficult challenge avoiding stars and other galactic objects en route to heaven.
However please be assured that this particular important item of mail has been delivered. Royal Mail’s priority is to get out customers’ mail delivered safely. I know how how important your mail is to you. I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely.”
The letter blew Teri away and delighted Jase.
“I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card,” Teri said.
But the postman’s kind gesture also did wonders for Teri, too.
“You didn't have to make the effort to do this,” Teri explained in a thank you she posted on Facebook. “You could have just ignored it. But the fact that you have made the effort for a little boy you've never met is such a lovely thing to do. Royal Mail you've just restored my faith in humanity.”
God shows His love for us in many different ways. And sometimes, it’s through that random act of kindness from a stranger.
Be sure to share this story to remind others of the huge impact one small act of kindness can have on someone else!
