Has an angel appeared before your eyes or made its presence known to you in some other way? Here is a collection of stories shared by people who have had angel sightings, angel experiences, dreams, and memories. Some of these amazing stories may make a skeptical person think twice.

Archangel Michael Visitation

I was giving a new client a reiki treatment. My hands were focused on her body as were my eyes. I felt a presence in the room.

When I lifted up my head I saw an angel step through the wall into the room. He was so very tall that he had to stoop so as not to bump his head on the ceiling. My first thought was this must be the Archangel Michael because I had been told once that the archangels are tall. I don't know why I thought it was Michael, I was just sure it was.

I wasn't sure that I should tell my client about the angel visitation, so I kept quiet. Before the session was over the woman asked if I ever sensed angels. I quietly answered, "Yes," as I continued to look over at the beautiful being of light that was sending enormous amounts of love and caring into the room. She then told me that she had always felt a strong connection to the Archangel Michael. So, I told her he was in the room. It was an amazing experience! —Paula

A Blanket From an Angel

My baby was in the hospital having a 4-hour surgery. My estranged husband was not present. At this time, our marriage was crumbling. But even worse, I was afraid for my baby's life. When I arrived in the waiting room an older lady was sitting there working on a quilt with words from the "Serenity Prayer" on it. It said, "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."

She asked me if the little baby boy is mine and when I confirmed, she took my hand and said a prayer with me. I asked who is she is making the quilt for and she replied that God will show her who will need it. Hours later I was called into the recovery room and my baby son was fine. When I came outside the lady gave me the quilt and told me she now knows who she has been making it for. I have kept it in her honor and my now-5-year-old son is sleeping in his bed covered by it.—Alexandra Maria

Angel Force

I was headed home to my children driving in the slow lane. The next thing I knew I was flying in the air in my Ford Windstar. I had no control. When my van landed, it looked like a crane put it there. It was in the ditch perfectly. I had little room to get out. I felt like some force had lifted me up out the ditch. I then saw this man who was so calm. He put a calmness in my heart. I never saw him again. I still can't explain how perfectly my van was in the ditch.—Momma

My Son and His Angel

In my home, we are not religious by any means. One night I was putting my son to bed and he started telling me that the night before, Jesus brought an angel to him because he was scared. He said, "She was so beautiful and her wings were so big they almost touched my walls."

He said she sang to him and laid with him until he fell asleep. He then said Jesus came back to get her, and he brought her back to a door with him where they started to sparkle and then went through the door. Ever since my son has been obsessed with Jesus and angels. He prays to an angel often and prays for Jesus to come back.

The other day he was crying because he said he keeps praying but he doesn't think Jesus can hear him. He said that he keeps praying for him to come back because they make him feel so happy. I acknowledge what he says but I don't push it. I just let him talk about it when he needs to. Not sure what I should do, he gets genuinely sad when he thinks Jesus can't hear him. He is only 4 years old.—Mj_Douce

My Healing Angel

When I was very young, maybe 8 or 9, I went to bed one night with a severe earache. I woke my mother up several times for comfort but nothing made it better. I laid in bed with tears in my eyes and then suddenly the pain stopped. I opened my eyes and saw something like a cloud hovering over me. I was amazed but more so relieved. I knew what it was. I soon after fell asleep in peace.—M

Angels Are Among Us

My 15-year-old grandson and I were putting up garage sale signs several blocks down the street. When I got back in the car to head back home I looked at Dawson, my grandson, he was looking out straight ahead and asked if he could stay the night. No sooner than he asked the question, while driving, in a flash of an eye, I saw huge white angel wings encompass my windshield. At that very second, Dawson shouted, "Grandma, did you see that"? I said,"Yes, I saw huge angel wings covering my windshield." He said, "No, Grandma, I saw a ball of fire."

We were both shocked to have seen two different things. We are strong believers and have experienced many miracles but who is ready for something like this. No trees fell, no storm, why were there angel wings in front of me covering my side of the windshield? And, a fireball flash for him? We cannot understand this. But, awesome! I could actually see the inner wing with all its brilliance and feathers. It was huge! And, it was gone as fast as it came.—Dlapaust

Angel at Night

My family and I were going through a terrible experience in 2006. To make a long story short, I had a chair next to my bed one night while I was sleeping. I woke up looking toward the chair, and there was a little girl dressed in all white with a hat on. She had a beautiful glow, but all of a sudden she walked away. I could not fall back asleep. I was terrified, but to this day, I know she was an angel watching over me. —Eduardo B

We Never Forgot

I’ve never told this story. When I was about 7 years old, I was left at home alone with my nephew who was 3 at the time. We were playing in a back room when something scared us. I don’t remember what I saw or heard, but I knew I had to get out of that house or we were going to die.

I clutched my nephew tightly, both of us screaming and crying, and ran toward the front door. Just before reaching the exit, I saw a tiny ball of glowing white light hovering just above our front door. I stopped dead in my tracks. I could not take my eyes off that ball. Suddenly it started getting bigger and bigger. Eventually, we were totally engulfed by the light.

The next memory I have, I was floating inside this light. It was the purest most beautiful, soft light ever, and I was transfixed by it. It felt so good. I can still feel it when I think about that day. Inside the light, there was no sense of fear, pain, or worry. Somehow I knew everything was okay and we were going to be fine.—Palmetto, FL

Orbs in Photographs

I have believed in angels all my life. In my younger years, I lived an exciting life, threw caution to the wind, and put myself in dangerous situations. I used to think I had worked my angels overtime.

My life changed when orbs showed up in the photos I took at my son's wrestling tournament. I don't see things like that, no matter what other people say they've seen. I was upset! My middle and my youngest son both told me not to worry. They believed they were guardian angels. Since then, I have captured a wonderful variation of these beautiful orbs. One has moth-like wings—gorgeous pink on the top and fairy green on the bottom. Again, since this one was so different, I was a bit upset again. But, when I'm out with them, I always feel so happy. They are playful, fun-loving, and I feel they are a blessing to me. They have helped me with unreasonable fears. I have peace and serenity like never before and see God's hand on everything now. Love and light, they go together.—Penny

Being Touched on Back While Asleep

Last year was the worse of my life. In six months, I lost my brother-in-law, my younger brother passed away, I had my adult son and family removed from my house, and I divorced my absent husband.

I cried years of tears at unexpected times. When I went to bed, I prayed longer and harder than ever. I asked the Lord, through tears, to please give me a sign that He was walking with me. About 3 a.m., I awoke to warm hands on my back and sat straight up. I was alone in the house and believe it was God giving me a sign he was with me. I was not afraid just irritated someone laid hands on me. Then it hit me who it actually was and drifted off to a peaceful sleep.—KC

Beautiful Bright Light

I've never experienced anything like this but it was amazing. Every night I will say a prayer, "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, guard me Jesus through the night and wake me with the morning light. "

It actually happened to me. When I woke up, out of nowhere, I saw a beautiful bright light filling up my room. I thought maybe somebody turned on the light, but I remembered the light in my room is very dim. Then, I thought about my window, but I keep the blinds closed all the time. I soon went back to sleep with a great feeling and a sense of security.—Brishauna

Morning Sun Angel

It started with me seeing a figure at the end of my bed. I also kept seeing purple, green, and white balls of light in my room at night.

One night, I had just laid down. Suddenly, I was outside staring at this woman who had long black hair. Her wings covered the whole of the sky. She was massive. I asked her what she wanted, shouting at her. She smiled, and she told me she was the angel of the morning sun. She flapped her wings three times and my body went all funny. I was back in my room. I could see myself lying in bed, I was on my ceiling.

I straight away researched the angel of the morning sun and I found sculptures of her and pictures. It was— 1,000 percent—the same angel. I'm still freaked out to this day as I had never heard of her before and also didn't believe in this type of thing.—Guest

Bright Light

I was sitting in the garden with my 7-year-old son. Suddenly, I could see out of the corner of my eye a very bright light. I looked to the left and down, and the bright light was on an ornamental angel in the flower bed. Then suddenly, the light disappeared. I have looked on the internet and it says I was visited by my guardian angel.—Fugthiz

Reaching Out

I was 4 years old. I was in my brother's room, crying. This is when I heard a sweet voice called me. I looked up towards the footboard and saw a woman with long hair lying on her right shoulder. She had on a white flowing cloth with light blue trimming surrounded by a white mist. Her arms were extended out with her palms facing upward as if she wanted to embrace me.

She whispered to me, "Come with me, I love you," in Spanish. I kept looking at her when I heard the bedroom door open. I screamed as I saw my mother walk into the room. She ran to the bed, and lifted me up into her arms, and ran out of the room. She sat down and started praying over me and kept pouring a sweet fragrance on my head. I was not afraid of the lady, but I do not know what happened between the time the door was opening and when I started screaming. We moved out several months later. However, to this day, I know I have someone watching over me and protecting me.—Just Stay Here

God Answers Our Prayers in His Timing

I prayed that God would show me an angel, and he did, twice, many years after I prayed for this. Both encounters happened when I was sleeping.

I suppose angels will come to visit us on occasion when we would be most relaxed and receptive to their visitations. The first encounter I had, I was in a dream state walking along a dark path at night. Then suddenly, the entire environment setting lit up with incredibly pure bright light as if the sun itself was shining on me.

Suddenly, I woke up, but no one was in the dark bedroom that I could see. So I asked in bewilderment, "What is it?" as if it was someone I was speaking to. No voice or words came forth, but the angel conveyed thoughts and pictures to my mind telepathically, showing me that I left the side door of the garage open with a picture in my mind. I was reminded to close the door and to lock it. So, I thanked the angel and got out of bed and, sure enough, the door was wide open.—Jeff

Red Lights

When I am at work, I encounter a very intense, red light which shines for about 4 seconds and then disappears. When I have seen this light, I have asked others present if they could see it, but they all say, "No." I wondered if I was seeing things, so I don't always say something when it appears. But, a couple of weeks ago, it appeared, and one of the people with me saw it. In the building where I work, it is impossible for this light to shine in. I saw it again, but no one else has.—A. Yates

Death Angel

When I was 20 years old, I was almost 9 months pregnant. I was sitting in my bed, wide-awake. A vision of a—well, the best way I can explain it—a bright light came into my room. The vision, as best I can say, was like a man, but his facial features were lion-like and it seemed to have a bright light shining through. I don't know how else to explain it. I wish I could draw it, but I'm not artistic. I am 42 years old now. This has haunted me to this day. That night, my baby died due to the umbilical cord. An angel took him, I've no doubt at all.—Sara Scully

Amazed

When I was younger, I was going through a lot of things that a young, 16-year-old girl shouldn't have to endure; You can try to imagine. My mother and I were arguing a lot. She was very angry because she was going through things of her on. She took it out on my little brother and me.

I went to sleep one night after crying and praying to God; I prayed for hours until I drifted off to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night to a bright light in my doorway. It was so bright that I had to squint my eyes to look at this beautiful light. Then, a very tall—what appeared to be a man—walked out of the light to the edge of my bed and kneeled down over me. He spoke my name and put his hand on my arm and started to whisper something in my ear. I could not understand what he was trying to tell me because as soon as he touched my arm I started feeling really tired and fell back to sleep. He made me feel so much comfort. I still think of my angel until this day.—Erica

The Presence

Not long ago, my father was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer and was not given much hope for survival past the Christmas season. Although the odds were devastatingly against him, he chose to go through a round of chemo to take some comfort in the idea that he tried everything he could to be cured. Although God had other plans, I take comfort in my faith that he will be taken care of by Christ and the angels themselves.

I was up in the wee hours of the morning after not being able to sleep in my unending thoughts and prayers. I stood in my driveway in the moonlight and meditated with chills indicating the presence of the Holy Spirit. As I prayed, my cat kept clawing and biting my ankles. I then, telepathically, said, "Jesus, can you please stop this annoying cat from biting my ankles while I am trying to talk to You?" At that very second, the cat refrained and sat up in a calmed state, although he still followed me as I strolled about the driveway. Coincidence?—johnowl01

Angel in the Navy

In 1974, while stationed in Pearl Harbor, someone I had been drinking with spiked my wine with LSD. He did so with several others. We all went back to the base barracks, and some of the guys were going crazy. I prayed for help. A sailor opened his door and asked what was wrong. I told him. He asked me to get everyone and bring them to his room. I did. He asked if we believed in God. We all shared our experiences about God, and that is when I noticed I was sober. It was way too soon for the LSD to wear off, it can be an 18-hour experience. It had only been a few hours since our drinks had been spiked.

The next day, I went to the room to thank the guy. When I went to the room, no one had been in that room for months. I was in communications, and there had been no ship movements. No one, but the guys who had their drinks spiked, remembers the man. It has been a mystery for nearly 40 years. There can be only one explanation, that sailor was either a ghost or an angel. Because of how he spoke of God, I believe he was an angel.—Gordon Marble

My Father Came to Me

My father passed away on February 1, 2012. Soon afterward, I had a dream that my father was waiting for me, but the closer I came to him the further he moved away. He was standing at the top of a flight of stairs which was very high and I could not get to him. It was as if he was watching over me. Then, a few nights ago, he appeared as an angel to my mom's neighbor who was sleeping in mom's bed. He just stood there, and then disappeared, after she told him my mom is being taken care of by me and she is fine. I miss him so much.—Sharon

Moonville Ohio Angels

Moonville, Ohio, is an old town that was overtaken by a plague, almost everyone died. All that is left of the town is a tunnel. We went through the tunnel, and three of my grandsons climbed the hill to the top. There was a thin beam of light that looked like a sword. It was right in front of us. I couldn't see when I looked up to take the picture, the light was so bright. I took the picture anyway.

When we got back to our cabin, I looked at the picture, there was a bubble in the middle of the thin beam of light, it was right in front of my grandson, Jordan. Jordan lost his father at 9 months old, he killed by a train. When I blew up the picture there were angels as plain as day looking right at Jordan. My 5-year-old granddaughter Masyn said, "I told you, Mommy, I saw an angel." I have the picture of the angels in the bubble, I want to share with the world. What a blessing we saw at Moonvill that day.—DianeVentura

Angelic Words

My angel spoke to me once and told me his name. It happened when I came back from shopping. My mom told me to ask who my angel was. I was barely forming the question when he told me one name, Gabriel. Afterward, I could feel him standing near me in a soft light with golden swirls.—Shassari

Digital Angel

Well, I had two angels. One, when I was 10 and I heard someone whisper my name but no one was there. My angel communicates with me by using digits on the clock. Last night, I was on my iPod and I randomly felt someone lightly squeeze or touch my arm. I was confused at first and started looking around but no one was there, so I looked at the time it was 2:23. I just missed 2:22, one of the times when they let me know they're there. I was amazed.—Courtney

Bus Stop Angel

I had a difficult two years full of losses, sadness, and major changes. I was recently diagnosed with depression. I had some very strange experiences and some moments of pure bliss.

One day, I was sitting at the bus stop and something that I couldn't see sat next to me. Something so beautiful that I felt pleasure and tingling all along that side. A very spiritual friend said it was evil, but I didn't feel it as evil. I think it was an angel that wanted to guide me. It has done just that through a chance encounter with a friend of a friend who has set me on the right path to healing all my hurt and resolving my depression and more. This friend of a friend is like an angel here on earth for me.—Rosalola

Angel Helps Me Save My Son's Life

My son called me because he wanted to die, but after trying to convince him that I should fly there to help with the children he hung up. My 7-year-old grandson called me crying and said, "Please, Grandma, come!"

I called the airlines and had to be at the airport for the last 9 p.m. commuter plane. The terminal was under construction so I was left at a shuttle site in the parking lot in the pouring rain. It was 8:45 p.m. I had never used this airport so I was terrified and began crying.

A woman appeared from the black of night and said, "Why are you crying?"

I replied, "I don't know where to board the plane!"

She asked me my flight information, then said, "Don't worry, I'll get you there." Then, a shuttle showed up! She got me to the terminal, and I was the last to board. I stayed up all night with my son, then I called the suicide line at 4 a.m. convincing him to talk with a psychiatrist. A friend came by, went to talk with him, and came out with a loaded gun and sleeping pills that he talked him into giving up! An angel saved him! ~Ruth K

Guardian Angel Encounters

At 18, I was in a car wreck. Out of nowhere, a lady in white clothes like a nurse appeared. She held a towel to my head stopping my severe bleeding as the firetrucks were coming. She said, "You will be fine now."

I looked away and she was gone. I asked the fireman where was the lady. He said, "What lady?" I pointed to where she had come from, and he said she could not have come from that area. That was a 500-foot cliff to the Pacific Ocean.

She had said to me, "I heard the accident and was at the beach and came to help you." All my friends saw her 30 years later. A blonde lady walked over to me and said, "You are going to be okay, everything will be fine." She walked away, and I turn around and realize it's her again, my guardian angel.—Mel S

Angel's Touch

My mom passed away in June 2011. About a month after her death, I was crying a lot. One night, I felt a touch on my arm coming from directly above me. I realized it was my mom, and I felt so comforted. It was the same exact touch I wanted to give her to say goodbye in the coffin but couldn't.—Donna

Beloved Angel

I had an experience where I felt something touching my head in a strange but soft manner. I knew I received a blessing because I was coming from church that day. From time to time, I also see this little orb. And for some reason, I just have a feeling it is my angel, and whenever I see it I smile and say, "Amen."—Faith

Angelic Visitation

It was May 2011, I was not feeling well. Everything seemed to be falling apart. I would spent a lot of time on Facebook and internet. I felt I was challenged by evil spirits. I was feeling like I was dead most of the time. I would see my spirit get out of my body and wondered if my dad would come in a spirit form to bring my soul back to my body.

One night, I was coming from my workplace at midnight in a risky place. I prayed that night. I saw a light from above and I collapsed then. My hands were lifted up by that light. Then, the light danced with me. Ever since then, I am always happy.—Billysigudla

Angels at Christmas Mass

My non-Catholic friend went to Christmas Mass with me and my family. He said that he saw the angels Michael, Uriel, as well as St. Lucy, St. Anthony of Padua, and Mary Magdalene. I was uplifted and felt that I was given a gift of having this shared with me.—Suzanne

Angel Helped With Emotional Release 

I know I needed healing. I wanted help with my emotions and felt I needed them to flow instead of wearing a protective mask or being like a statue.

I asked an angel connected with Mount Shasta for help with these blocked emotions. Within 5 minutes, I had tears of gratitude for a dear friend who brought me to this healing meditation. I cried every morning of the long weekend and released many un-cried tears from old pain. I allowed this healing release to begin a new journey for me. It felt odd, not to be embarrassed by my emotional state of releasing. I felt so good to let go. I was so grateful and realized that angels are always here for us if we ask for their help. What a gift. I had never felt such love, such freedom, and such connection after this retreat.—Syena

Prediction in My Dream

I totally believe in my angel. On the night of November 12, I was praying to my angel to connect with me in my dream as usual. I was woken up by a male voice. The only thing I remember was him saying, "Earthquake between 4 and 5." I was confused by his words if it meant that 4 to 5 was the time or the Richter scale. To my surprise, on November 14, my husband called me around 2 p.m. and asked me if I'd felt the shake that morning around 5 a.m. and that it was a "5" on the Richter scale.—Smreetee

Encounters of Divine Protection

Since I was a young kid, I have never had any doubt that my guardian angel/s protect me whenever I need protection. That is how I've lived and prayed through many encounters of divine protection and safekeeping. Today, I'm a semi-retired veterinarian belonging to our local Guardian Angels group. I developed type I diabetes in 1967, and now I have a lot of faith that Jesus with all His love will always carry me until He needs me at the next level. Bless you all with God's grace and all overpowering love.—Stan in Windhoek, Namibia

Who Is My Angel?

I have several angels and see them each in different ways. My father is rainbows, my grandma is butterflies. There are orbs in pictures. I know they are there when I photograph them. They are red and often in shapes of angels. I have been told I have five.

One day I took my very sick dog, Who, to the vet. We were at a stop light and Who was on my lap getting hugs and love because the day had been tough on my dog. Our light turned green and I began to accelerate. Who coughed and lost breath. I immediately stopped and looked down at him in fear that I'd have to send him back to vet. In seconds, a truck sped through the red light with lightning speed, rocking my SUV. That would have been the end of us. My mouth was open and I gasped, "Huh." Who looked at me (although he is blind). And I said, "Wow, Who, you saved my life with your little cough. He laid his face on my arm as if to thank me for saving his. He is now one of my angels near my heart and at my feet right now.—Angelina

We Both Knew Who He Was

We were in the jungle at Taljai Devi near Pune (India), we knew we were lost. Both of us had almost decided that might have to spend the rest of the night at the jungle, but suddenly from somewhere, a man appeared. His looks were serene in spite of meeting him at that time of day in a jungle. We did not get scared of him at all. He looked so peaceful, there was such serenity on his face. We followed him. Me and my friend both knew that he is either an angel or a man sent by an angel to help us.

One of the signs that you have had an angel encounter is if another person with you feels the same way. And, my friend certainly did. We are so sure that we will never meet or see that man again. I'm sure he wasn't a common man because nobody comes for a walk in that area at 7:30 p.m. when its getting pitch dark. And, he knew the road, which nobody else would know.—Anjum

Angels in Backyard

When I was taking pictures in my backyard one and a half years ago, I looked to see how the photos appeared. I found that a great, awesome cloud came down my alley and three UFOs shaped like pyramids were in my backyard. Three men wearing silver suits and silver cone-shaped hats advanced from the UFOs toward me.

The one closest to me, about 8-feet tall, had a great smile and reached out as if he was going to hug me. He looked as common as any man except for his silver suit. I was overwhelmed with excitement and surprise. Being new to photography, the photos were lost when I was downloading them to the computer. The message error said that the space on the memory card was used up so that I could not transfer photos to it. This was extremely frustrating. Nevertheless, the experience shores up other encounters with the Kingdom of God in various visions.—Edgar Ronnie Barton

My Daughter's Angels

I have a daughter who is permanently disabled. She had open heart surgery when she was only 3 months old. We were told when she was being prepped for surgery that we shouldn't do it and that her prognosis wasn't good. They said that they would make her as comfortable as possible until she passed.

Obviously, we didn't do that and, now, she is simply amazing. Since this surgery, we have been stopped four times in the last year all by different people who have said they see angels all around her and I—100 percent—believe it. God gave me my daughter for a reason and I am grateful for the angels who always take care of her. I just thought that after four different people I don't know have come up to me, and my wife stating that there are angels all around my daughter that they must be on to something. God is amazing.—Tjohnson

Clear Sign

Yesterday, I just asked no one really, "Please, just give me a sign on what to do (I want to relocate from Ireland to Spain but was not sure if I should go for it or not )."

The next day, I was looking through one of my many handbags, and I put my hand in to grab some coins out of it. Suddenly, I found myself with a silver ring in my hand with a coin stuck in the middle of the ring.

The story behind this is that the ring is very important to me. I got it from a boy on my first holiday in Spain when I fell in love with the country, and I thought I had lost the ring forever. I had searched everywhere but could not find it. The coin in the middle of the ring had an Irish harp on it. So, the question remains, its Spain or Ireland? Although I am confused, I still believe this is my own personal sign to change my life.—Lora

I'll Never Leave You, Nor Forsake You

At the age of 15 years old, I was riding my four-wheeler. I tried to climb a hill with my four wheeler by myself, risky since no one was there if I had wrecked it.

As I got to the top of the hill, my front tire came upon a rock in the trail. My four-wheeler began to flip back, and I had already felt the point of feeling helpless at gaining control as the front end was pointing toward the sky. At that point, I knew I was in trouble, and then, in that instant, I felt a hand catch me and drove me forward with so much force I thought that I was going to go over the front of the four-wheeler as it hit the ground. From that day forward, I vowed to never try to climb that hill again. I am now 28 years old and a preacher for Christ. Thank God for that unseen hand that watches over us each day.—Tony

The Squirrel That Saved My Life

I know I have angels by my side. I've been so close to death a few times. For instance, I was driving down the road approaching a major intersection. The light was red, and I hadn't reached the stop light yet before I got there it turned green. I said to myself, "Cool, I don't have to stop, I can keep going." That's when a squirrel ran out in front of me, and I slammed on my brakes. No one was in front or behind me, but I was intending to go through the intersection at the same time a speeding car ran a red in the opposite direction. If that squirrel didn't run out in front of me, I would have been killed. The guy who ran the light was going about 60 miles per hour. Maybe an angel threw a nut across the street for the squirrel or gave him a poke in the rear. Or, maybe, the squirrel was the angel. Oh, by the way, I didn't hit the squirrel. He ran on his little hero way.—Jenny

Angels and Demons

Angels and demons both exist, and, according to the Bible, there are twice as many angels as demons. They are all around us, and we are to judge over them in the future. Be sure to worship and give thanks to God for sending his angels to protect you!—Jan

Angels Are Real

I have been living a reckless life for quite some time. I have put myself in situations that most people would not have survived. As my life became more reckless and dangerous, my family told me "Something has to be watching you or protecting you." I had started to lose my faith, until one night my mother came to my bedroom and told me, "Please change. Death is following you. I have never seen someone go through so much and live. Please change."

After not praying for years, I laid in bed and prayed "Lord, please send me a sign. Anything. I need help because my luck is running out. For my sake and my families sake, help me, please." So, no sign came. That is, until I started to doze off and awoke in a state that I cannot explain. I could not move, I opened my eyes and above my bed was a light. It was the brightest, most beautiful light I had ever seen. It was pulsating and glowing white. It was so bright it lit my room up. Then, it was gone. I know it was an angel sent from God.—Heather

Angel at the Mall

During a very rough time last week, my daughter and I went to the mall. At the bottom of the escalator a lady approached us and started a conversation. She asked me a lot about where I was from, etc.

Then. she told me that this rough time would pass, and that the girls at school were jealous of my daughter, and that she just needs to hold her head up high and not respond. Wow! How did she know there was a showdown at her school the day before? She also said that my daughter will have her pick of colleges to choose from. (She is a straight-A student since kindergarten and is now in 10th grade.) She also looked deep into my eyes and told me that she knew I had been to hell and back but this will all make me stronger.

Before we left, she said that she sees six angels around my daughter and six around me. We aren't alone. Oh! She also reminded me to keep surrounding myself and my daughter with protection, and that it works! I do, I surround myself and my daughter with the white light every day. How did she know?—Lindy61

What I Believe Must Be an Angel

I was the manager of a radio broadcast station. I worked the morning show in which I had to wake every morning at 3 a.m. to get all my prep together by 5 a.m., which was airtime. The night before, I abruptly woke up at 11:00 pm. I had been sound asleep by 9:30 p.m., yet felt I had to call the radio station urgently. I was initially disoriented, yet driven. I was barking orders to my equally-sound-asleep husband who responded beautifully to my orders. I asked my husband to get on the cell phone and get ready to call 911.

When I called the station, the talent on air informed me that there was a stranger in the studio with a gun. I signaled my husband to call 911 while I asked to speak to the stranger who was highly agitated. I was able to talk to the man who threatened my friend, my staff member, and engaged him until the Sheriff's office arrived and my staff member was saved. There is no other explanation other than an angel informed me of danger and guided me through handling it.—Pjbcww

Sitting in Silence

The other night I came to stay for the Christmas holidays with my dad and brother. My brother sometimes is a person I still don't get along with even though we are adults. He keeps to himself and seems to ignore me most of the time. I feel very sad about this every time I visit my family. He is not nice to my mom at all who lives separate from him and my dad.

On the first night I was here, I held back tears as we ate supper. I played cards with my dad. I could have talked to my dad about it but I didn't know how to put it into words. That night, I cried when I went to bed and in the middle of the night I woke up to see a woman in a black and orange dress sitting beside my bed. She never said anything, just sat in silence. After a while, I fell back to sleep. In the morning I felt refreshed, like I'd been talking with a good friend.—Yhohannah

My Guardian Angel

I was taking my 3-year-old daughter to daycare. I had left the house and traveled two blocks when I came to a major intersection that was being widened. I was the first car at the light, my daughter was in her child seat in the front. The light turned green, as I readied to go through the intersection, loud and clear, I heard the words, "Don't Go." It was so clear that I thought someone was in my backseat.

I checked the rearview mirror, there was no one. At that point, I thought, "Oh, I am holding up traffic" and started to proceed through the intersection when a dump truck full of hot asphalt ran the red light. I was told that if I hadn't delayed, the impact from the dump truck would have killed us. And, if not the crash, the hot asphalt would have burned us to death. I always thought it was my daughter's angel. Years later, I spoke with a psychic. She said the angel was mine and that I had three: one strong woman and two men. The psychic said, you know, "The men that help you do things around here," I thank them a lot. —LINDALOULALA

Invisible Hands

Years ago, I was out with my two good friends and we were walking around in this big shopping center. Over an hour, we hung around the perfume section looking for the right smell, so in the end, we were quite dazed.

Coming out of the main entrance right ahead was a huge crossroads. All the lights were green, but just before the big crossroad, there was a little crossing with no lights. At that moment, just behind a corner, a bus was coming, driving very fast. It was only a split second from when I was taking steps, to the next, when I heard bus sirens. I felt strong hands on my shoulders pulling me back to the pavement. Also, I saw the bus going just inches from my nose passing very fast. My friends were behind me, but none of them could remember grabbing me. They were stunned and admitted that they stood watching when an angel saved me, Thank you, my guardian angel!—Linda

Angels From the Air

I remember when I was very little, I don't remember what age, but my mother and I were on an airplane. I looked out and I saw clouds shaped as Jesus with angels. The angels looked like they were like babies, like Cupid with a diaper-like thing with no shorts. They looked so young. In the middle, I saw Jesus with long hair like I usually see in pictures. I think I only saw his hands, arms, and head. I pointed to my mom and she said it does look like it but didn't really look that much. Occasionally, I ask her if she remembers that day. Sometimes she says, "Yes." Sometimes she says, "No." Sometimes I think I was just dreaming, but somehow I know it's real.—Daryl

Eight Angels

I was in a bad place in my life. I was having terrible problems with my 22-year-old son. I was literally at the end of my rope. One night on my way home I was alone in the car, and I starting praying out loud. "Dear God, please send someone to help me. Let me see angels as a sign. A sign that things will get better. I'm so lost and in such despair. Please send me an angel to help me."

Nothing happened. I was about 5 minutes from my home when I received a text message from my best friend. The message read, "Eight angels have been sent to help you." That was it, the whole message. Confused, I called my best friend and asked her if she had sent it to me. She said she received it about 15 minutes prior (around the time I was praying) from her son who, when questioned, said he never sent it. She saw it and thought to send it to me. After that message, things took an upswing for my son. He is alive and thriving. I know in my heart these angels are with him and me too!—Millie 

My Angel

I was 5 years old when I encountered an altar church boy about 10 or 11. I entered my bedroom in broad daylight, and he emerged from the wall and levitated across the room, then disappeared. The loose door of a heavy armoire fell to the floor and missed me because when I saw him I just stayed at the door speechless. My mom heard the noise and came running. I was accused of touching the door when I was told not to because of the loose hinges. She did not believe me, and I never repeated this story to anyone.—avantgarde33009

Angels Leave Feathers for Me

Angels in my life are simply divine. Ever since I invited my angels into my daily life, it has changed for the better. I know with the angel's guidance I can make the best decisions for my future. Often the signs I receive are feathers. They come in all shapes sizes and the craziest places.—Karen Borga

Sign of Hope

Feeling very lost, as I was about to fall asleep, I entered into another dimensional place. I was looking down at myself without any emotion. When I looked to my left it slowly started, a light, as it was coming closer, became brighter. Then, the face of an angel, huge, looking right at me and me at him, right into each other's eyes. Then I was back, fully conscious of the experience. I still have deep moments of sadness about my life, and yet I still can't explain what it was like to look an angel in his eyes and him at mine. Maybe it's a sign of hope.—Bostoniangal

Healing Angels

My brother and sister-in-law are going through a difficult divorce. She is trying to jail him through deceptive and untrue acts. My brother awaits trial tomorrow. Being an avid angel believer, I opened my angel inspiration to a random page for guidance. It told me to send angels to three people: one I know well, one I do not know, and one who is misusing their position of power. So, that would be, my brother, the judge, my sister-in-law. I went into meditation to initiate this task. It lifted my spirits, and I will send loving thoughts to all. Asking all for their prayers for a positive outcome for all. Love and light!—Angelized

My Son Saw an Angel

My kids an I were sick one morning and I was so scared. I got on my knees and prayed and I kept calling the name of Jesus. All of a sudden, my 3-year-old son said, "Mama, why you keep calling him, there he goes right there," pointing up to the window. We all felt so much better. He said there was a lady standing there with one hand in the other. It was a great feeling to know someone was watching over us.—Travismn

Angel Story Worked

I was sitting in my office suffering from a terrible cold. I chanced upon this article, and in the story "I Must Have a Male Angel or Guide," the angel asked the man to breathe. I felt someone telling me to do it, too. And, I did the same, and it worked. My cold disappeared. I am not sneezing anymore and I can complete my work now. Angles truly exist. Hopefully someday I will be able to see my angel. Thank you, angel!—Gina.josep

Embraced by Love

One Wednesday night back in the late 1990's, I decided to sing for God under the evening stars. We live in a semi-rural area, so thankfully I wouldn't be waking anyone up. I suggested to God that He may want to have some angels doctor up my lame singing voice as I'm sure He is used to hearing beautiful angel choirs in the heavenly realms!

I sang all of the old hymns to God under the night sky—anything that came to my heart that made me feel closer to Him. While I was singing, I felt a feeling of being surrounded or embraced by love. After I finished, I instinctively looked up at the rooftop of our home and saw a tall glowing figure that was completely surrounded by a warm yellow/white light standing on our roof. I smiled at this being still feeling that sense of love surrounding me. Then this light person flew off of the roof and up toward the stars as I stood watching in shock. I ran inside to excitedly tell my mother. We were both encouraged!—Boldylocks

Angel Experience

My ex-husband was a reiki practitioner and one night he was giving me a treatment for repetitive strain in my shoulders. I was afraid to open my eyes during the treatment because I didn't want to lose my mind's eye view of all the wonderful visitors in our living room. At the same time, I didn't want to discover they were really there! I could see five "people" around the recliner—a Mandarin, a twin boy and girl, a French monk (I don't know why I thought he was French), and a girl dressed in a 1940s trenchcoat. That was weird enough, but when I looked beyond them in my mind's eye, I could see the most beautiful male angel standing at the far end of the room. He had huge white wings which reached right up to the ceiling. I'm sure everyone thinks I'm losing it, but I know what I was experiencing and it was the best encounter ever. The French guy was a bit imposing.—Scotswummin44

Easter Angel

I believe that I saw an angel when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It happened on the night before Easter. I had fallen asleep in my parent's bedroom. I woke up and my mom was sitting on the bed. She told me to go upstairs and to tell my dad to come downstairs, and so I went upstairs to get my dad. As we were both walking towards my parent's bedroom, I saw an angel standing by the bed. She was looking directly at me. She was barefoot, and she didn't have a smile on her face or anything, I can't even remember what her mouth looked like but she had blue eyes and long black curly hair and she was wearing a long-sleeved yellow dress with flowers on it, her dress almost looked like a nightgown, she was glowing and she had almost like a white beam of light around her. As I got closer to her she started to vanish, and once she was completely gone I told my parents that I had just seen an angel. That's the only time I've ever seen her. But I believe that she is my guardian angel.—Taylor

I Must Have a Male Angel or Guide

I had taken myself away to spend a few days on my own as a treat. I had booked a lovely room overlooking the bay. After a hot bath, and half-hour yoga, I sat meditating. This male voice came out of nowhere and shouted, "Breathe!" I was startled and opened my eyes and as I did his voice repeated, "Breathe, you need to breathe." His voice was deep, demanding, and had an urgent undertone to it. I started to cry and I felt like a child when I started answering that I would. It has puzzled me to this day, but it was then that I started breath meditation.—Pennie

Saw a Man Smiling and Watching Us

I am 54. I have a close relationship with our heavenly father. My wife was in the hospital having cancer removed from her body. My daughter and I saw her off as she was being prepared for surgery. I was so scared and in tears trying not to show any sadness. My daughter and I stepped outside and went down the escalator. We were going to go outside to pray again. We have had so many people praying for my wife. As I was going down the escalator I felt something warm, comforting. I happen to look back up the escalator and there stood a man looking at me with this wonderful smile. I looked at my daughter who had already turned the corner, she looked at me, puzzled. I turned my head again to look at this man. He was still there with this wonderful peaceful smile as if he was proud of us. He was wearing a handsome suit. I guess I turned my head, and he was gone. I quickly ran up the other side which was next to me. He was gone. There was nowhere he could have went.—Dave

Angel in My Dream

I believe in angels because I have lots of experiences wherein I know they talk to me. Angels don't only watch and guide they also make you a better person. I was in a bad situation two years ago. I was angry with myself, but I never noticed it. In my dream, there were two men standing on a platform. They called me. I noticed three gray stones in their forehead. I don't know why they had that.

One guy asked me, "Why are you angry with yourself, what is bothering you, why are you punishing yourself," he said. You have everything. You have a nice family, house, people love you, then why don't you love yourself?" His tone was an annoyed tone, I cannot answer because I know he is correct. I just said, "I am terribly sorry," and I cried.

When I woke up, I remembered I was still crying. I felt scared by my experience that time. But it makes me realize that those two guys are correct. I am a happier person now. There are ups and downs in my life but we have to learn to count our blessings.—Mojaru

My Spirit Guide Is an Angel

Recently, I have been experiencing ghostly things in my house and the height of this, I was attacked in the shower. I called a spiritualist to help me. She brought with her two other mediums and they took pictures of my house and talked to me. One of the mediums was also a healer, and he decided that a healing session was needed to help me as it seemed the things that were happening in the house were down to me having a psychic gift. When he was performing this, I was told to bring forward my spirit guide. It soon was obvious that my spirit guide was an angel and not just any angel but the angel Gabriel. I was told this was very important and that my psychic gift was extraordinarily strong.—Sofie

My Angel Put Me to Sleep

As a kid, my parents fought like crazy. One night it got so bad, I locked myself in the room and cried for this to stop. As I clenched my sheets, I felt a hand stroke my hair, and I immediately fell asleep and did not wake up till the next day. Remembering this, the next day, I smiled and felt as though nothing happened the night before. I love my Angel and that's not the only time I've been helped. I feel like they are with me even when I don't deserve them to be.—Sheren

Angel Encounter Programs

I first heard an angel come to my room when I was sober two years. The angel woke me to tell me my job was to help others. Then I found out there is a way to communicate. One way is to ask your angels for directions on how to help yourself and others. We are all angels sent by God to help others, we forget after the age of 2. A group of us on Friday nights talk on the phone and pray for others with their angels to help heal others. It is all free. I clean myself before I help others, like the sign of the cross, only a little differently. I encounter my angels every moment and miracles still happen for those we pray for. God is so good he gives us people to help others and gives our life the true purpose of being here: go for the light. I have four angels since birth. They have saved my life so many times. I love my angels.—Anna Wooten

Angels, the Underemployed 

I was raised Catholic, my mom incorporated angels into our everyday life like to reassure us. For example, thunder is just the angels bowling, and lightning is the angels taking pictures (that one led to a bit of danger as we all wanted to run outside and smile at the heavens during a lightning storm).

As an adult, I left the Catholic Church and the saints and angels to explore other spiritual paths. So I was quite surprised when in my mid-40s, Raphael and Uriel came to me. I'd worked as an intuitive healer for years. When the angels came I was so surprised. I said, "I don't work with angels." Uriel responded, "Nevertheless, we are here."

After a few days, I became used to their presence. Over the next few weeks, they guided me in many ways, including teaching me new healing techniques. They asked me to be a channel for them, which I continue to be. Raphael has been in the passenger seat telling me to slow down or speed up a bit during snow storms in mountain passes. I live with them, joyfully!—Coleen Renee

Little Kid Angel 

When I was little, I was walking with my grandma holding her hand on this trail to the store. Then there was this kid that walked right by me with blond hair and blue eyes. He said, "Hi, Jimmy." Then, kept walking. I just looked back at him, and he never turned back. My grandma did not seem to notice him either.—Jimmy

Angel Alerted Us to Fire

My husband, six children, and my daughter-in-law lived in the same house. But one day, my husband and my younger three sons went and stayed at our new place. My oldest daughter was out that night, my oldest son went to work the night shift. So my daughter-in-law, my granddaughter, and I stayed up watching movies. I asked her if she would sleep in my room just for that night. She did, and in the middle of the night, she woke me up whispering my name cause she said she felt someone open the door very slowly and shut it again very slowly. She was very scared thinking someone broke in. I went real fast to see who it was, but when I went to go look there was smoke all over the house. A fire was starting on my stove. We must have forgotten that we left a pan on the stove. We ran outside. We believe whoever opened the door was an angel who saved our lives. It wasn't our time to go yet. I do believe in angels. My daughter-in-law felt a presence that woke her up, which was the door being opened.—Mari Hernandez

Purple Orbs

Occasionally, I see a number of purple orbs at the corner of my eye or in the corner of the room. I believe these are my guardian angels. Also, whenever my son is ill in bed at night, I see a purple orb and that is my son's guardian angel looking after him and letting me know he is going to be ok. It's very comforting.—Mandy

Angels Exist

In the dead of the night, an angel whispered loud and urgent to me, "I smell smoke." It woke me up and saved my life, my husband's life, and my dog. We lost the house and everything we owned!—Believer

An Angel in Disguise

When I was leaving the grocery store, there was a sweet old lady and she seemed like she had appeared next to me. I was laughing, and when I glanced over at her she had a warm smile on her face. I couldn't help but smile, too. When we were standing outside of the store, she had mumbled, "Now where did I park that car?" Then my mother said, "That makes two of us."

My mother then found her car, and she had mentioned it, too. Then the lady said, "I think I parked my car over there, too. I'll just follow you." So, as my mother and I were walking towards the car, I had turned around to see if the angel was still following us. She had disappeared. I knew this because I had looked from left to right, everywhere she possibly had gone. I just didn't see that smiling face of her's anymore. When we got in the car, I couldn't help myself from smiling, she just made me feel so warm.—SCM

Protective Angels

Three times an angel or angels have intervened and saved my life. And, these are just the times I can account for. Once when I was 9, my brother, cousin, and I were playing in this empty house where the garage had been left partway open. I was attempting to crawl back out when my cousin had found the opener button on the wall and was pressing it, unknowingly crushing me in the process. My young life flashed before my eyes, and then, right to the side of me (my face pressed to the ground), I saw a bright form of feet, legs, and hands. The garage suddenly felt lighter, and I hurried and climbed out from under it just as my cousin sealed the door with him and my brother still inside.—Kim

An Angel Spoke to Me and My Sister

When I was little, I had an imaginary friend who was a lot more real than a pretend one. His name was Michael, and I talked to him often. But that's not the freaky part, my younger sister also had an imaginary friend, and when my parents asked her what the name was, she also said Michael. (And she never heard of my pretend friend.)

I wondered if it was the Angel Michael, protecting my sister and me. Years later, a friend asked a psychic a general question about me. It was nothing to do with angels or anything. One of the first things she said to my friend was, "Tell her that the angel she thinks talked to her as a child, is that angel. And, he's still there, always listening, whenever she wants."—Anne

Angels in Philadelphia

I believe that I saw several angels on several occasions. The first sighting was at a devastating fire in West Philadelphia of a church that once was affiliated with the People's Emergency Center. The building was gutted and there appeared to be about two or three pacing back and forth.

Second, two enormous ones, both young, white rather Raphaelite-styled males, about five building-stories high appeared to be standing on either side of Market Street about one block south of City Hall in 2001. 

My third experience was while riding a SEPTA bus east in 2003 on Spruce Street near Penn. Again, both appeared to be the rather traditional Raphaelite types in their 20s, who stood about 12-feet tall, walking in a pair together. They strode right directly in front of the bus. In each case, my mind was on something entirely unrelated, as were my tasks, to anything except the most mundane activities of walking, bussing, and thinking about personal matters, but there they were!—PrsntLife

How My Life Changed

My mum died in July 2005. I not only lost my mum but my best friend also. We always believed in fortune telling and I had had a very bad experience in her bedroom a few years before she became very ill. I was visited by what I can only explain as an evil spirit. I felt I was being crushed into the bed and could not breathe. My mum witnessed this. The air in the room was icy cold, and she could see her breath. The only way it stopped was when she started saying the Lord's Prayer. I was sore all over my body, especially my neck and shoulders for a few days. After my mum died, I was afraid to try to make contact and I was unhappy, sad, and very lonely. After a year, I was walking past the holistic center where I live and was drawn to angel card readings. I made an appointment. And, how my life has turned around is unbelievable. The lady who gave the reading is not a medium, but my mum came through and was standing on my right side. I felt her presence and I broke down.—Rienne

Angels

I had just done the reiki. At night I could not sleep. Around midnight, I felt that I was floating, though I was still in bed. When I opened my eyes, I saw the whole room was filled with white shadows, but I was not scared, and I tried to make out what they were.

Then, I realized they were the angels, which were circling around my room. The feeling was so nice and comfortable that I did not wish the night to end. When I was being attuned for the third master reiki, though my eyes were closed, I felt Jesus beaming on me (I am a Hindu). After the attunement, when I opened my eyes, I saw Jesus as a boy in gold. Surrounding him were angels. Jesus was talking to me saying that I have to heal as many people I can, and I will go a long way in this treatment of people. Every time I do healing, I always call on the angels. When I feel or sense them, I start the treatment. I know that I am always with my angels and a guarding angel. I do get answers from them if necessary. —Tara

Homeless Angel

Driving home from work going through a neighborhood, I saw a homeless man pushing a grocery cart filled with odds and ends. I suddenly felt the need to stop and give him money which was something I did not believe was a good idea. I felt compelled to do just that. He said that he had no shelter to go to but that God always took care of him. I gave him the money and he blessed me.

I turned a corner and felt compelled to go back again. He had disappeared into thin air. He was there in the middle of the street, in the middle of a subdivision, in the middle of a block, and then he was gone—shopping cart and all.

My mom woke up during the night and there was an angel sitting on the end of her bed. She was wearing pale green, had red curly short hair, and had a round rosy face. She held a large open book and spoke not a word but had a sweet smile. My mom smiled back then laid back down and went to sleep. She said she slept like baby. My mom was in her late 80's.—Deborah

Little Orb Angel

I've been in dangerous situations in my life before, and somehow I've come out of it unhurt and safe. I attribute this safety to my angel. Sometimes when my eyes are closed, this one little bright dot appears and blinks, just once. Immediately I say that's my angel and smile. I don't consciously say it, just my instinct. Somehow I know the little orb that blinked is my angel. It sounds strange, but I have the feeling I am not wrong.—Kat

Car Accident

The accident happened around 1979. My girlfriend Donna was driving the car on the Bronx Expressway one evening with another friend and me. We were in the left lane when the car decided to stall. Normally, you would glide over but Donna hit her brake. That is all I remember until someone called my name "Veronica, wake up." I was in the back seat and we were hit from behind. The person pulled me out of the car.

When we got to the hospital I asked for the man that pulled me from the car and the police said no one pulled you out of the car. You woke up and got out yourself. Someone helped me and I believed it was an angel or my guardian angel. I'll never forget that moment.—Veronica M Kniffen

Angels Are Among Us

I believe in angels and my mom was one of them. Shortly before she died, she began preparing an amazing "shindig." She wanted to look nice, have great food, and enjoy and celebrate her life. Two days later, she unexpectedly died. Don't tell me she didn't converse with the angels. Don't tell me she wasn't planning her entry into the hereafter with the angels and saints and our God. She had never ever been so happy in our life and she told me so. She brushed off all the materialistic things of this world, told me to get rid of her house, a house she had clung to with tenacity for years.

But now, all she wanted to do was party and celebrate. How fitting for my mama. How fitting of the greatest gift she could have ever given me. I am truly humbled and blessed by this last gift from my mother. When we laid her to her final rest, she had no wrinkles on her face whatsoever. The peace of the Lord was with her and I am forever grateful. It's only been 11 days, but I speak with her daily.—!lola1948

No Doubt

There is no doubt in my mind that angels exist. They are a very active complement to my practice. Years ago, during a choir rehearsal at my old church, I was drawn to the prayer room, in which, was sitting a council of angels. I was told at the time they would be taking an active role in guiding us. Shortly after, the "Times Magazine" featured an article about our beliefs in angels. I asked another choir member to go into the room and he experienced the same wonderful loving experience that brought us both to tears of joy. —Rev.Frederick

Guardian Angels

My two dearest friends of 50 years were each killed in similar head-on collisions 17 months apart, and each occurred two days after the birth of my daughter's children, which convinces me that the timeliness of these two accidents was predetermined so that each baby could have a very special guardian angel.

One friend was my daughter's godmother, and the other was my daughter's namesake. The second child was born five and a half weeks early to coincide with the death of my friend who had been on life support for a week. As soon as the baby arrived, she died two days later.—carolgould

Bright Light in Bedroom

I had a surgery a year ago. One night, I was reading a book about how to communicate with your guardian angel, then I fell asleep.

Around 3:30, I woke up and there was one bright light in my room. I saw a big person dressed in baby blue color. I could not see his or her face. I saw her leg was immense and was near the end of my bed. I got up and began to read Psalm 23 aloud. That was an experience that I will never forget. I never thought I would get to experience something like that. I did not know if it was an angel or a spiritual guide, but it was a blessing.—Oneida Pineda

Angel in Disguise

An old boyfriend broke my heart by leaving one day without explanation. Years later, I received a phone call from his mother, he was dying of brain cancer. She felt seeing me would bring comfort to him. This was a very emotional situation I found myself in.

I decided to visit him and ended up being committed to him in a nurturing way for the rest of his life, which ended up being a year. This time was an emotional roller coaster, and I often felt confused. One day while going to the train station, an old woman dressed in black stopped right in front of me and said, "God loves you, you are doing the right thing," and she walked away.

I quickly turned around and she was nowhere to be found. After my friend passed away, I saw the same woman again, dressed the same way, this time she said, "God loves you and you did the right thing." Angels needn't have wings to bring messages and comfort. Thanks for listening. Peace.—Kathy
