As Robert reads the words "In God We Trust" on a quarter, he is pulverized by a speeding truck. Upon his arrival in purgatory, Robert learns he is going to@#$%— but he's given a second chance. On his return to Earth, he must score the points necessary to gain entry into heaven while the minions of purgatory use everything they've got to to stop him.

This was a cute short movie you can watch on the internet:

I like the message and it's funny too!

Yes, I agree.  I really enjoyed it too.  I'm going to sticky this one for awhile so it always appears near the top of the list.

I searched Google and this is what I found:

Production company: Watch Out For The Bears, 269 South Beverly Drive, # 225, 90212 Beverly Hills, USA, tel. +1-323-6561588, fax +1-323-8520499.
Foreign sales agent: Atom Films, 815 Western Avenue, Seattle, USA, tel. +1-206-2642735.

I don't know if its up-to-date though, but its worth a try.

When you're down to nothing, God is up to something."
 

 This is beautiful! Try not to cry.
 

 She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room.
She said:  "How is my little boy ?  Is he going to be all right ?  When can
  I see him ?"

The surgeon said, "I'm sorry.  We did all we could, but your boy didn't   make  it."
Sally said, "Why do little children get cancer ?  Doesn't God care any more?   

Where were you, God, when my son needed you ?"
 

The surgeon asked, "Would you like some time alone with your son ?  One of
the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the
   university."
Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good bye to son.   

She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.   

 

 "Would you like a lock of his hair ?" the nurse asked.
Sally nodded yes.........  The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it
   in  a plastic bag and handed it to Sally.
The mother said, "It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for Study.   

He said it might help somebody else.  "I said no at first, but  Jimmy said, 'Mom, I won't be using it after I die.   

Maybe it will help some  other little boy spend one more day with his Mom." She went on, "My Jimmy
had a heart of gold.  Always thinking of someone else.  Always wanting to   help others if he could."

Sally walked out of Children's Mercy Hospital for the last time, after
spending most of the last six months there.  She put the bag with Jimmy's
belongings on the seat beside her in the car.

The drive home was difficult.  It was even harder to enter the empty house.
She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his
hair to her son's room.

She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his
room exactly where he had always kept them.  She laid down across his bed
and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.

It was around midnight when Sally awoke.  Laying beside her on the bed was
a  folded letter.   

 

The letter said:

"Dear Mom, I know you're going to miss me;  but don't think that I will ever
forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to say "I Love
You".  I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day. Someday we
will
  see each other again.  Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you
won't be so lonely, that's okay with me.  He can have my room and old stuff
to play with.  But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably
wouldn't like the same things us boys do.  You'll have to buy her dolls and
stuff girls like, you know.   

 

 Don't be sad thinking about me.  This really  is
a neat place.  Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed
me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything. The angels
are so cool.  I love to watch them fly.  And, you know what?  Jesus doesn't
look like any of his pictures.  Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him.
Jesus himself took me to see GOD !  And guess what, Mom ?  I got to sit on
God's knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important.  That's when I
told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and
everything.  But I already knew that wasn't allowed.  Well, you know what
Mom ?  God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this
letter.  I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this
letter off to you.   

 

 God said for me to give you the answer to one of the
questions you asked Him 'Where was He when I needed him ?'  "God said He
was
  in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross.  He was
right there, as He always is with all His children.  Oh, by the way, Mom,
no  one else can see what I've written except you.  To everyone else this is
just a blank piece of paper.  Isn't that cool ?  I have to give God His pen
back now. He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life.
Tonight  I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper.  I'm sure the food will be
great.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you.  I don't hurt anymore.  The cancer is all
gone.  I'm glad because I couldn't stand that pain anymore and God couldn't
stand to see me hurt so much, either.  That's when He sent The Angel of
Mercy to come get me.  The Angel said I was a Special Delivery !  How about
that ?

Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me.

WinkPlot summary for
In God We Trust (2000)
While standing in the middle of the street contemplating the motto on a quarter, Robert is killed by an on-coming SUV. In the waiting room of the afterlife, a punctilious clerk, Gil, pulls up Robert's record on the computer and tells the young man that he's @#$%ed. Lots of little bad things have added up, and his score is negative. Robert bolts back to earth, with Gil and his colleagues in hot pursuit. Robert visits his girlfriend, drinks a smoothie with his dad, foils a robbery, and dances. His positive points are accumulating as Gil (and death) close in. Is it up or down for our Bobby? Little things can mean a lot.Star

we believe God wants you to know ... that God will give you everything you need once you are ready to receive.
 
God is abundant and is only waiting for you to make yourself ready to receive what you truly need. Think now what can you do to make yourself ready?

we believe God wants you to know ... that your body speaks the truth.
 
When in doubt, ignore the thoughts in your mind, and pay attention to your body, - it doesn't lie.
