Tested By An Angel

At a truck stop one night, trucker Michael has an encounter with a person he believes was an angel

It was in the early 1990s; I can't remember the exact date . But I will never forget what happened.

I was a long-haul truck driver from Colorado and I was on my way to Florida. It was about 3:00 a.m. and I had been driving all day, so I pulled into a truck stop somewhere in Louisiana and parked my truck.

This was a huge parking lot. I got out of my truck and started to walk to the truck stop to get something to eat before going to sleep for the night. There were no other truckers walking around.

About half way to the truck stop, I was checking my wallet to see how much money I had to spend. I looked up and a man was walking up to me, and he was about five feet in front of me. It was like he just appeared out of nowhere. I looked at him and he had the bluest eyes I have ever seen.

The man asked me, "Brother, can you spare some money so I can eat." I could not take my eyes off of his; it was like he could see right through me. I gave him five dollars and he said, "Bless you."

I started to the truck stop and I turned around right away thinking he would go in and get something to eat... and to my surprise he was gone. I mean he vanished! Even if he had run there was no way he could have got out of sight that fast.

To this day I think I was being tested by an angel.
