Angels Among Us

Almost everywhere these days, there's  a lot of talk about angels.  Books have been written about them.  Certainly, in the Bible, they are mentioned numerous times.

Without a doubt,  I feel angels protect us from harm.  Once, our daughter was involved in a horrible car accident. A drunk driver, who had downed a 12 pack of beer and then got behind the wheel of a car, rammed into her car. 

When my husband and I were called to the accident scene and saw her mangled car, the police prevented us from going to her. Emergency workers removed our precious daughter from the heap of mangled metal with the jaws of life. Except for an ankle injury, minor scratches, and the psychological trauma of being in such a horrific crash, she was unharmed.

No one can tell me she had not been protected by angels that fateful night. No one. She could easily have been killed on the spot. Angels saved my "baby" girl's life. Even now, as I write this, tears fill my eyes and run down my cheeks, just remembering.  My heart overflows with immense gratitude to God for sparing her life and for sending His angels to protect her.

I think angels come in the form of friends. During some pretty lonely years in the southwest, away from family and all familiar, my heart literally ached until I met a very special friend. We are kindred spirits and remain in close contact today, even though separated by thousands of miles.

The angels shown in the above photo are part of her collection.  It would be appropriate to have her in the photo, too, because she is definitely an angel to me and always will be!

Would it be too cheesy to say that my mom is my angel? Well, I don't care if it is, because she is my angel. In the moments of need, she's been there for me, with a loving hug, smart advise and a good meal to peace the soul :o)
Touching story Susan! and very pretty figurines.
have a lovely day!

A very close call...yes, and angels can be unknowns as well! I have a couple of tea angels sitting around too....

I believe angels are all around us, and I have a few special ones in my life. I definitely believe that they protect us in many instances.

Oh I believe angels are there. How many near misses - or we just turn away at the right time? Yes, I believe that our friends are our angels too!

I've never had the pleasure of seeing, being with or experiencing anything to do with an angel...I think I'll wait till I die and go to heaven..ha ha ha.

"Angels saved my "baby" girl's life."

Miraculous. Incedible.

None of these words are enough.

I am so glad to have read this. God bless you!
