Angels Among Us - Angelic Help Can Sometimes Come In The Strangest Way
Do you believe in Angels or is it just coincidence?
Sometimes strange things happen that make you sit back and think, 'What the heck was that?'
Or how did that happen?
We go about our daily lives believing that what we see around us is all there is. Our minds take in the everyday sights and sounds and make us believe that the earth that we live on is easy to understand. And so we take it for granted that things are what they are.
But sometimes, when Angels step into our lives it makes us stand back, take a huge intake of breath and say, 'Well I never...'!
How do we know they are Angels? And what exactly are they?
Here's a couple of stories with strange encounters, I will leave them for you too decide. Angels, coincidence or Divine intervention?
And remember, Angels have a sense of humor too!
The Mysterious Taxicab
A few years ago me and a friend decided to go clubbing in the town a few miles from where we live. We hadn't been out for quite a while so we thought we would make it a real night of fun.
After a few hours I noticed that my friend was getting more and more inebriated and started to make plans for getting home. Suddenly she tottered over to me on her very high heels and said that she was going to get a lift with three guys.
So I said no, but she insisted, and against my better judgment I decided it was best to stick together. We would normally have got a taxi, but for some reason I thought, no, it will be fine.
When we got in the car I realised that I had made a huge mistake. I needed to get home. But by this time I decided to trust the guys to take us back to our town.
But no. They thought it would be fun to drive straight to their house! My stomach sank, what do I do now?
When we got out of the car I yelled to my friend who was already going into the house, 'I am going home, you can stay here for as long as you like, and good luck!!'
Turning away in disgust I started to walk. Then I realised that it was 3 am, there was nobody about and the road was long and dark.
I looked around, nobody. Hell, I thought, what do I do? This has got the word 'attack' written all over it. A woman on her own in a rough town at 3 am!
Looking towards the sky, I sent up a silent prayer. 'Help me!' I asked.
I started to walk on, only to hear the sound of a car behind me. Turning round, there in the middle of the road coming my way was a London Taxi! I don't live in London! I thought, 'What the heck is that doing here?'
I slowed up when he saw me, so I waved and he pulled over. 'Can you take me back to my town?' I asked.
He replied 'Nah love, this is a private taxi, but I will take you back to the taxi rank so you can get another one, and its free, okay? because I can't charge you!'
So there I was. In a safe black cab at 3 am with a jolly Londoner chatting away. He dropped me off and I got safely home.
After I got home I sent up a silent thank you God.
You have to remember, this was 3 am in the morning, nobody was around, and no cars on the streets. People were asleep. Coincidence? No, definitely not.
Angels don't only help people in danger.....
Most people believe that Angels or Supernatural occurrences usually appear when you are in danger. But that's not necessarily so. There are all sorts of pain.
Whether it be physical or mental sometimes our call for help will be answered by something or someone that would totally shock us, and even make us smile!
Take my second story.........!
Yep you read it right! This was a very strange 'Angel' or call it what you will. I live upstairs, two flights up, in something called a Maisonette. A house on top of a Flat.
Someone lives downstairs on one level, I have upstairs and downstairs and a neighbor about two feet from my front door. To get in the block, you have to open it with a key climb two lots of stairs then reach my front door. Yes there is a point.
We had a really awful neighbor, in a nutshell she was mad as a bag of spanners. She used to listen at my front door, ruin my bike just outside the door by letting down the tyres and so on.
It got worse, but without going into detail I was beyond angry. But didn't know what to do. I got more and more stressed. She started spreading rumors about me being a witch, yep, you read that right too!
That was because she knew I was into paganism, so she wasn't too far wrong, but she got worse and worse with her stories. One time my son was in the Sea Cadets and was away for a few days, hubby was fishing, and I was swimming.
Next second policemen arrived at the swimming pool, Sea Cadet hub, and fishing spot, wanting to check our alibi.
What for? Well she had rung the police to report we were trying to kill her! She had barricaded her front door! As I said, mad as a bag of spanners!
The police found it quite amusing, let us go home and virtually told her off for wasting police time, But time after time she caused us trouble, broke our stuff outside the door, and called the police. I was so mad, but felt totally helpless as I didn't want to be nasty to her. She was obviously mentally ill.
I sat there one day and looked to the sky. 'Please help' I whispered.
Angels do have a sense of Humor!
I asked for help, but never expected this!
One day I heard a scream from the stairwell outside my front door. Running to the door and flinging it open I saw 'Jill' standing near her doorway with a look of horror on her face!
I asked her what was wrong, while secretly thinking, Ha! She pointed to my front doormat.
There on the mat was a green little fella! It was a cute frog! How the hell.....?
Quick thinking made me realise that this was my chance. Stooping down I picked up the frog and said 'I asked for help, but never expected you, do come in!' LOL!
The look on her face was the best! She screamed 'Witch' ran indoors and slammed the front door.
Two days later she moved!
How the little fella got outside my front door is still beyond me, it had to open a security door, hop up two flights of steps then sit on my mat waiting for me to open the door. No way would Jill have put it there, she was terrified of all thinks creepy crawly, and frogs came into that category!
The Lady Who Sees Angels!
So there you go. Angels do not have to be in human form. They don't even have to help you when you are in dire need. Sometimes they have a great sense of humor too!
As for my neighbor, she was quietly moved to a care home after trying to mow the lawn with a vacuum cleaner! And yes that's true, no, not lying! Sometimes you just can't make it up!
