The Man Who Died and Went to Heaven [a Very Short Story]

A certain man died and went to heaven. He was granted a chance to go round God's premises and below was his observations as the angel Gabriel took him around.

They entered the first department, a very big
hall where so many angels (in their millions)
were busy sorting letters.

The man was surprised and asked in amusement, "what are they doing?"

Gabriel answered, "they are sorting letters of
prayer requests according to their categories,
for people who are sick, seeking jobs, need
deliverance, for divine intervention etc.

They moved into the next department where
they saw almost the same set up, but this time, the angels were packing letters into boxes and sealing then.

Again, the man asked what they were doing and the angel told him that they were sealing God's letter in reply to the request made by people on earth for healing, jobs and so on.

Lastly, they went to the last department where they saw only one man sitting and dozing with nothing much to do. This time, the man asked the angel slowly, "why is this man sitting here?"

Gabriel turned and looked at the man, this
department is not always as busy as the other

The angel here is supposed to be receiving letters of thanksgiving from people on earth who have recieved their replies of blessing, healing and so on...

From God, but none of them seem
to remember where the blessings came from.

That is why this department has only one man to take care of all the duties, and he is never busy, that's why you see him dozing

The man's heart was moved, tears dropped from his eyes and he wished he could go back to Earth to inform his brothers and sisters...
