My True Angel Stories

True Angel Stories: My Personal Angel Encounters

I have been fortunate enough to have several angel encounters in my lifetime, and now I'm sharing my true angel stories. The Bible tells us, "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it" (Heb 13:2). The Bible is very clear about the fact that there are angels among us. There are many reasons why God puts angels on earth. Angels watch over us, providing protection and comfort. In the Bible, angels were often used as God's messengers. It was an angel that told Mary that Jesus had risen when she found His tomb empty. Angels also test us. Just as the scripture in Hebrews states, God sometimes places strangers in need in our path to test us, to see if we are upholding His laws by providing Christian charity to those in need.

Here I share my personal true angel stories. I have had three angel encounters in my lifetime so far. Just as Hebrews 13:2 says, at the time I was unaware that I was in the presence of an angel. It is after the encounters occur that God whispers to my heart that it was an angel I just saw.

My First True Angel Story

My family entertained an angel.

The first time I met an angel I was five years old. Our house was really small, so my dad had hired workers to convert our garage into a family room. As a result of all the construction, my parents had the doors and windows open and I was playing outside. We lived on a major highway, and hitchhikers frequently walked along the road in front of our house. I noticed a man walking down the road, but instead of continuing down the road past our house, he turned down our driveway and started to walk toward our house. I ran inside and got my parents and told them a stranger was walking up.

My dad came out and met him. I remember him being an older gentleman, my guess would be 50's or 60's but it's hard to tell because he looked as if he had been traveling for a long time. His clothes were worn and he had a large pack on his back. My dad and he talked for a while. It seemed as though they were having a friendly conversation. I remember my dad tried to give him money and he absolutely wouldn't accept any at all. The only thing he wanted was a little food.

My mom is an amazing down home cook and had supper almost ready when the stranger arrived at our house. The man seemed content with the idea to eat a bit of food outside, but my dad invited him inside to eat supper with our family at the dinner table. I remember the stranger turned down my dad's invitation, explaining how he was too dirty and smelly to come in our home. My dad told him to not let that be a concern at all because our house was all messy due to the construction and workers tromping in and out any way. The stranger then gladly accepted my father's invitation and he enjoyed a hearty, home cooked meal at our family's table.

I remember my parent's enjoyed the stranger's company and conversation. They tried to offer him many things, but all he was interested in was eating and then heading back on the road. My dad did finally get him to take some clean, warm clothes and a new pair of shoes. This man just so happened to be my dad's size, a small miracle in itself since my dad is a very slender, but very tall man with small feet. In exchange for our kindness, the man gave me a tiny pocket flashlight which at five years old I thought was super neat.

He thanked us for our hospitality and then bid us farewell. My dad watched as he got halfway down our driveway, then he got distracted by questions from one of the contract workers. My mom was busy cleaning up in the kitchen. I watched as the man walked off. He got to the end of our driveway and then just vanished. Alarmed, I ran inside and got my dad. He bolted out the front door and down to the road. He looked both ways down the long, straight highway, but the man was nowhere to be found. My man walked back to the house with a knowing smile on his face. I asked a lot of questions, feeling quite spooked. That's when my dad told me about Hebrews 13:2, "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." He looked down at me and said, "Wendy, we just entertained an angel today."

My Second Angel Encounter

The life changing experience where I met my guarding angel.

I was a busy college student the second time I met an angel. I had a tiny apartment on my own. I was attending classes full time and working thirty-five hours a week to pay the bills. To celebrate my twenty-first birthday, I had taken time off so I could go home and visit my family. I had stayed the night with my sister and was driving back to my college town since I had class and work the next day.

It was a beautifully sunny spring day as I drove the four hour drive back home. I was on a long stretch of Highway 31, which is known as one of the deadliest highways here in Texas. The speed limit is 70 miles per hour; I had my cruise control set to 69. The heat from the Texas sun was causing blurry rays to bounce off of the black pavement. The blurry mirage obscured the view of what was in the road just ahead until all I had was a fraction of a second to react.

Just mere yards in front of me was a turtle, a rather large turtle. This stretch of road was single lane. A car was in the opposite lane coming my way, so I could not swerve that way. There wasn't enough shoulder to swerve to the right. I didn't have enough confidence in myself to try to straddle the turtle. Then in that fraction of a second I remembered a tidbit of my dad's driving advice. Here in Texas we frequently get a variety of wild animals wondering onto our highways. My dad told me to never risk my life or the lives of people around me to keep from hitting an animal. He told me if it's necessary to stay safe, just hold the wheel tight and hit the animal if it's unavoidable.

So, that's what I did. My right front and rear tires collided with the turtle's hard shell. They blew out instantly. Having two blowouts at 69 miles per hour in a lightweight Mustang caused the car to go out of control. I remember it skidding and me steering into the skid as we are all told to do in basic driver's ed class. I thought I had this under control until I felt my two left tires leave the ground. I was flipping. It felt like the world was in slow motion. I had an instant to cry out, "Protect me Lord." The roof of the car bounced off the pavement. I felt remarkably calm. God had heard my prayer and had covered me with His protective feathers.

My tires bounced on the pavement. I could tell that I had too much momentum flipping to be stopping any time soon. I felt the jarring smack as the roof of my car impacted with the ground again. I still remember with a cringe the horrify sounds of crunching, bending metal. Then my tires hit again, and in a horrible explosion all of the windows turned into a million tiny little projectile pieces. I put my forearms up in an X to protect my face. I felt the hot pieces of glass bounce off of every inch of my body. And that's when I noticed the car had stopped. I wondered in amazement how I suddenly stopped flipping. Then I noticed the left side of my car had hit a sturdy iron cattle fence. The strong fence, which was cemented into the ground, had stopped my car. "Praise God," I whispered.

For a split second I wondered how I was going to get out of my crunched up car. Then I heard someone say, "Wendy are you ok?" I was very confused. The car had just stopped flipping. There was no time for anyone else to stop their car and yet come to my aid. Not only was this woman immediately at my car, not only did she know my name, but she was standing at my right door the second the car stopped flipping. To have been there at that exact moment the car would have had to flip right over her head.

"Yes," I answered dumbfounded. That's when this extraordinarily petite woman ripped open my completely crunched in passenger side door. I undid my seatbelt. She reached in and pulled me out. She placed her hands on my shoulders and said, "I'm so glad your alright, Wendy."

Now several cars had stopped along the highway and wonderfully kind people had rushed to come help me. A woman handed me a cell phone, her hands shaking, and told me to call mom. I started to dial the number and then asked the kind woman where the tiny lady was that had pulled me out. She replied, "Sweetie are you ok? I'm the first one here." I looked around and the petite woman who had miraculously tore open my car door was nowhere to be found.

I called my mom at work. Since I sounded ok on the phone, my mom was thinking it was a minor wreck. A volunteer firefighter was now on the scene. I said, "My mom wants to know if I can drive myself home."

He grabbed the phone from me and told my mom, "Ma'm I've been a firefighter for 15 years and have never seen a wreck this bad. Her car is totaled. It rolled twice. It is an absolute miracle she is standing here." His intensity frightened me, and I turned and looked at my car for the first time. Smoke was rising up from the crunched up hood. The entire roof had caved in nearly to the seats, except for the driver's seat where the roof was miraculously unscathed. It was a horrifying sight. The woman who had lent me her cell phone broke down and started crying and told me she was expecting to find the driver dead when she walked up.

Thanks to God's protection, I walked away from this terrible wreck with scratches on my arms, a back injury which healed over time, and a mild concussion. I immediately knew how fortunate I had been. I knew that it wasn't luck that had me standing there safe and sound to celebrate another birthday. I knew God had seen me through this horrific accident. What I didn't know was who had ripped open my car door, called me by name, and pulled me out of the wreckage.

When I got to my parent's house I shared my story. My grandfather had asked me what the woman looked like. He got teary eyed as I described her. Then he whispered the name, "Jewel." I asked mom who that was. That was when she explained that Jewel had been my grandfather's first wife. They had never had children and hadn't been married long when she passed away from colon cancer. My mom told me that everyone had always said that Jewel was the kindest, sweetest, most remarkable woman that had ever met. My grandfather added that Jewel had always been like a sweet angel when she was living that it was only fitting that she be my guardian angel now.

My sweet guardian angel did much more than help me out of my car. Her soft voice calling me by name calmed and soothed me during a frightening and traumatic time. God had heard my cry for help and had sent me an angel to see me through.

My Third Angel Story

I forgot the scriptures and failed my test.

My third angel encounter is not a story I'm proud of. It's one I'd like to forget and prefer for others to not know about. I'm choosing to share this angel story so that others may learn from my mistake.

A few days before Christmas I went grocery shopping. On the drive home I noticed an older women standing at the traffic light with a sign asking for help. Her sign stated that she was recently released from the hospital due to an illness and that the medical bills had put her in a bad financial situation. I had seen her at this intersection once before, but this time God was placing a burden on my heart to help her. I was in a hurry to get home. I had left my husband alone with our three small children, the youngest of whom was still breastfeeding. I was concerned that the baby was ready to nurse. I was worried that my overworked, overstressed husband was very ready for me to come home. I rarely have cash on me, since money is tight and we use our debit card for essentials. All I had in my purse was $4.25. I was ashamed at the idea of pulling up in my husband's Mercedes (which we bought with cash before having kids and before having money troubles) and offering this woman only $4.25. God was trying to tell me that that $4.25 would help and was better than offering nothing at all.

Another woman stopped and gave her some money while I was waiting for the traffic light to change to green. I convinced myself that I needed to return home, that my $4.25 wasn't worth taking the time to stop, that someone else had already offered assistance. All of these seem like reasonable arguments except for the fact that God was telling me to help this lady. God was telling me that it was my responsibility to stop. I am now more ashamed of the fact that I didn't stop than I am of my measly $4.25 that I had to offer.

After I got a mile down the road, God reminded me of Hebrews 13:2 and how I had failed to offer Christian charity. I now know that this woman in need was an angel. She was sent to test me and I failed. I am humiliated and humbled by the selfishness I showed that day. Following God's laws was easy when I was only responsible for myself, but as a busy mom of three it is much more challenging. But that fact does not release me from my duty as a Christian to help others.

I hope those reading my final angel story will take my tale to heart and recognize the next time they have the opportunity to entertain angels and will rise to the occasion.

I've since prayed for forgiveness and can only hope He sees fit to test me again and that this next time I will pass with flying colors as my dad did when I was five.

      The company I worked with sent a group of employees and myself to New Orleans for a business conference in 2009. We went out after dinner and were taking in some sights. When it got late, around 1:00 am, I decided that I had seen enough and got very tired. I told the group that I was going to the hotel and go to bed. As I began walking. I thought I knew the way and the more I walked I realized that I could be lost. I came upon a dark side of town with very little light and was sure in my mind that I was going the right way. The further I went the more isolated it became. I turned down this road that was very long, dark and straight. I began to get a little fearful of where I found myself. I noticed an individual leaning on a dim-lit light post several hundred yards away. He seen me and began walking towards me as I was walking towards him. There was not one single vehicle in either direction on this isolated road. I began to pray that I would be protected because I feared this person was up to no good. About the time that he and I got about 200 feet from one another a taxi van pulled up alongside me and flung the passenger door opened and said " Get in". When I got in the guy was at my window yelling and cursing. The taxi driver acted like he didn't even see or hear him. He asked me what hotel and took me there with hardly any words. When I got out I thanked him and gave him 20 dollar tip.

      I pondered this and it hit me, how did he know I needed a ride? I wasn't waving a taxi down. I didn't even hear or see him before he drove up. Undoubtedly an Angel and answer to my prayer.

      Today, August 6, 2013 at approximately 10:30 a.m., I had an encounter with an angel.

      I was putting gas in my car and had gotten back into my car when I noticed, out of nowhere, that a woman appeared outside of my door. Just standing there underneath the roof of the gas pumps, her eyes were closed with her held tilted up toward the sky. There was no other car besides mine at this particular pump. I thought nothing of it at the time and continued to drive my car over to the air hose to fill my tires. As I made my way around the car, removing all of my valve caps, I went to grab the hose and noticed that it was broken. I replaced all of the caps and as I was reaching for my drivers side door this woman was there and asked if I had 4/5 dollars. She gave no story as to why she needed it like most people do. You know the normal hard luck story about needing milk for a baby, hungry, etc... Just asked for the specified amount. I looked at her and politely said "no, I'm sorry I don't carry cash" and gave her a smile. She looked at me pleasantly with a smile, but her eyes seemed different. I wasn't scared or nervous, just to me seemed a bit different. She looked at me for what seemed like 5 mins, but was actually like 5 secs before I got back in my car, then carried along on her way. I tried to watch where she was going but lost sight of her. I didn't see her approach anyone else and by this time there were other cars and people filling up.

      I drove on towards my home when God put it on my heart to turn around and find this woman, no matter what the cost. I fought it for a half mile or so and finally turned around determined to find her. I immediately began to pray and ask God to forgive me for lying to this woman about not having any money, and fasted Him to give me the opportunity to find her and help her out. As I was waiting at a stop light I dug into my backpack and pulled out these 5 $5 dollar coins that have been in my change purse for well over a year. I pulled them out and asked God to bless this money and allow it to help the woman out. I got to the corner where the gas station was and there she was getting ready to cross the road, mind you in the opposite direction she was heading when I left her. I was hoping the light would change in my favor so that I might be able to pull into the gas station, park, and meet her at the crosswalk. Just as I pulled into the gas station she got the light to cross. I had to get back out onto the road to try and catch her. I noticed she was heading in the direction from where I just came, so I pulled into another parking lot, parked, and walked up to meet her. She looked up at me with the same smile and look in her eye that she had when I departed her. I said, "please forgive me, I have these to give to you. I am so sorry. These are dollar coins and I hope they help you." She looked at me and said "thank you, The Lord told me to walk back this way." I then told her, "He put it on my heart to come back and find you and give you this". What she said next astounded me, " thank you for being obedient" ! At that point my eyes began to tear up. And she looked as if she was about to as well. She just smiled and kept saying thank you for being obedient and 'God is good'. How she couldn't believe how He made her come this way and this is what happened and how she just got chills from it all. I apologized again and said "God bless you" and continued to walk a few steps with her until I reached my car. When I was in my car, I couldn't stop crying, not because I was sad, but because this experience was so, I haven't the word or words to describe it. I just sat there for a sec praising Jesus and thanking Him for the opportunity to not fail Him again. While I was backing up, I looked in my rear view mirror and saw her one last time, she put her hand over her mouth, bowed her head, and began to cry and then smiled and looked up to Heaven.

      Now, she could have been just a devout Christian, truly touched by the Power of God to intervene between us to help her out, but I truly feel that she was an angel sent to test me and my obedience. God did not want me to fail and that is why He put it on my heart so strongly that I must return to her. I believe at this time Jesus will be returning soon and He is looking for His bride to step up and the only way He can be sure that the bride is ready is to test the Church to weed out those who are faint in heart and faith.

      God bless!

      no but can you give me one of yours

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      When I was 16, two years ago, my boyfriend/best friend had passed away. It was devastating obviously. I had cried all night without stopping. Anyway, it was a surprise and I was really sad. The next day after he passed, my parents took me out to eat to try and take my mind off of things. Well our waitress was probably one of the nicest woman we had ever met. She never stopped smiling, she was VERY happy and KIND! As she walked away after taking our order she stared at me every single time she was in sight while smiling very big. I didn't understand why. I told my mom "Look, that women won't stop staring at me! How creepy!!" And she said "Wow that is creepy! Wouldn't it be crazy if she was an angel because your having such a hard time?" So anyway, we all talked and ate for a minute before she came back to make sure everything was going good. My mom looked at her and said "Mam, what's your name?" She smiled and said "Angel." :) We all looked at each other in disbelief. Happy disbelief that is. So when we left my mom called the restaurant to put in a good word for Angel. The manager told her nobody by the name of Angel had worked there,

      yes. Actually this happened when i was a todler and i don't remember it myself, it is a faverite family story of what was thought at the time to be a burgler. The story goes; i came to the breakfast table with a story about a visitor in my bedroom, my mother asked who it was, i said it was a stranger. i woke up to see this person in my room,and he said hellow, calmed me down and told me to go back to sleep, which i did. Everyone was upset of course, and checked every thing in the house. Nothing was taken. My bedroom was on the second floor. No one knew how he got in or left. Or why he was there. I assume it was some kind of spiritual encounter. There is no other explanation.

      Everybody has an angel with him or her all the time ! You do not need to seaarch for it. All you need to do is to ask it question one at a time before you fall into sleep. Your angel will respond for sure ! The only problem is that angel's messsages are difficult to understand in general. So you must persist and record your dreams preferably everyday. Eventuallly you will breakthrough. . . . . .

      Better yet, if I survive my brain infection, I willl train the mankind

      Yes! My name is karen and i am now 27 years old. At the time of my encounter i was about 13.. when i was growin up, i wasn't the prettiest girl and was reminded of that daily! My self esteem dropped vigorously. Everywhere i went people thought i was a little boy and many people called me ugly. My mom always told me not to listen to what people said about me because i was beautiful. Too bad yhat i didn't feel that way. One day my sister and i went to the store. I stayed in the car but she got out. As i looked into the store, i saw an older lady no taller than 5 feet wearing a brown coat and one of those hats thay golfers wear. Her face was pressed against the glass looking directly at me. It was kind of strange because i never saw this lady before. So i decided to scrape up some change and go into the store. As i walked around the store trying to figure out what i could afford with the change i had, this same little lady that saw at the window followed me around until she finally caught up with me. She looked at me and said "excuse me, but you are very beautiful." And I was amazed but felt great about it. At the moment I felt like I was beautiful. I told her thank you and as I turned away and looked back, she was gone.... I was so shocked that I ran out the door to see where she went but I had no luck. I asked my sister if se saw the lady I was talking to and she looked at me like i was crazy. She said no one was in the store but us and the clerk. Wowww that was my gaurdian angel... despite how many lies people tell about eblncounters MINE IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Yes. After a bad car accident with my friends, I heard an angel direct me to "Go forward". I just instinctivly moved forward through a perfectly broken out back window. I did not open my eyes until I was standing outside the overturned car in a darkened field, lit only by moonlight. I have "heard" angles about 4 times and only seen angels twice in my 59 years of life. God is so good. All were blessings.

      I am not sure if I had or not as a teenage girl.. my usual walk down a busy street from school.. i ran across an old male with white long bread wearing old tattered clothes.. his eyes were all white as if he were to be blind.. he was walking quite normal too as if he wasn't blind.. as he walked right next to me and stopped and looked at me and smile.. and said.. your soul is very beautiful. smiled and walked off.. i walk this street everyday to and from school but have never seen this person before nor after that day.. as he looked me into my eyes it felt in my heart like he was looking down into my soul.. 'til this day i still feel that feeling i had and for some reason i can never forget it.

      We were living on Alamedia Del Prado in Novato California between 1975 and 1980. We had taken a trip to the seminary where my husband was attending. On the way home I saw a hitchhiker. He was about 6 foot tall rather rugged looking and not dressed to the hilt. Had a hat on. I made my husband stop and pick him up. He had a Bible in his hand. Said thank you for the ride. I asked if he was hunger and he replied yes. So we took him to our apartment which was upstairs. OUr apartment complex was huge and lots of people were outside on the ground playing with their children. Even my nosey neighbor who always took heed to tell me everything I did and questioned me on who might visit and who didn't. Gossiper to the hilt.

      When we got inside we only had 2 pot pies left to our name. We were so poor. I cooked them both, winked at my husband and told him not to say a word. We watched while he ate and just drank coffee and told him we weren't hungry. He had no idea that was all we had. When we saw him to the door he left a tract on our table. We had a prayer before he left.

      After he walked out I noticed that he had left his bible. It was a Giddeon Bible. I asked everyone on the ground which way the man went. Everyone told us that no one went inside with us that it was just me and my huband. So it must have been an angel that we had the pleasure of feeding so when I see someone hitchhicking I remember that day. I try never to turn one down. Lord bless all hitchhikers. I know from personal experience they can be and probably are most of them your servants.

      When my children were young, our favorite past time would go riding in the car in places we normally wouldn't go. My 12 yr. old daughter ask if her friend Nathan could come and he suggested we drive into another county where his grandmother lives. Great idea! I had never been there before. As it was getting dark, it also begin to drizzle rain a bit. My 7 yr old son was sitting in the front seat and my two daughters and Nathan was in the back seat. Everybody was laughing and talking and having a good time when all of a sudden I slammed on my brakes. My three kids were asking me "Mom, why did you do that?" It took me a minute or so to speak. And when I did, I asked all if anyone saw anything. Everyone talking at the same time saying no. But I didn't here anything from Nathan. I looked in my rearview mirror to see Nathan as white as a ghost. I asked Nathan, "Did you see anything?" It was hard for him to speak but he replied, " That big man." Nathan saw the same thing I did. As I was driving, all of a sudden this huge man ( 9-10 ft. tall) Black hair,chin to chest wearing a tan trench coat with black dress pants and black shiny shoes. It was unreal that I had enough time to see all this. He stepped with giant steps and stepped right out in front of our car and immediately vanished mid of my hood to cause me to brake! Once I collected myself, we continued to find ahead of us a (drop off) from the road without a warning sign. If we had not slowed down, we would have never seen the drop off. He was the angel who saved our lives that night.

      I have had several. The most dramatic was when I was ready to give up on my passion for making art. I was at the end of my rope. One night a stranger called me from the psyche ward at the local hospital to tell me she had a message from God that I was meant to keep painting and making art. I still have the notes I wrote while she was talking. And I checked the caller ID repeatedly after to make sure I had not dreamed it.

      Yes, I also survived two really bad car wrecks. Your story made me cry :) (Tears of joy are good)

    • Christine Hulme 5 years ago from SE Kent, England

      Yes- I believe it was an angel who drew up on the central reservation of the motorway when we were in Germany with an empty trailer, ready to tow our broken down car off. When he drove us to the services he announced that he was a mechanic!

    • Kathryn Grace 6 years ago from San Francisco

      Truly, I believe the love of my life is an angel sent to help me through this life.

    • Bonzlee LM 6 years ago

      I was very ill in the hospital and in excruciating pain and I prayed fervently for God to help me in my misery. Archangel Raphael came and my pain was gone and I felt at peace. We are all so blessed by the presence of angels!

    • Lorelei Cohen 6 years ago from Canada

      Yes, I had an angel visit when I needed one most, but it was actually my sister who wished this angel to find me. I realized this about two months later while talking to my sister about the incident.

      Been blessed by more than 50 Squid Angels in a month! :)

    • Kimberly Hiller 6 years ago from Chicago

      I have had a couple encounters. I believe and know they are real. The people that passed look over you and help you along the way.

    • Heather Burns 6 years ago from Wexford, Ireland

      Yes, all my life.:)

    • Missmerfaery444 6 years ago

      I have encountered the presence of angels many times, although never been fortunate enough to experience them in the way that you have, in the physical sense, at least not that I know of :)

    • Mary Norton 6 years ago from Ontario, Canada

      Yes, my husband and I always know they are there and people tell us we live a charmed life. We do. We are truly blessed. Like you, I have failed many times not just once. When this happens, I try to make up and pray that I become more attuned.

    • Jennifer P Tanabe 6 years ago from Red Hook, NY

      Yes, I've felt their presence on several occasions. One time on a dark rainy night when we were running out of gas an angel guided us to a gas station.

    • LissaKlar LM 6 years ago

      I believe in angels and I have had encounters with angels that I am positive of.

    • tiff0315 6 years ago

      Yes, I feel there presence at hard times in my life

    • capriliz lm 6 years ago

      I have not had the type of encounters you have experienced, but I do know that I have my guardian Angels. They watch over me and my loved ones.

    • ohcaroline 6 years ago

      Yes, I had an encounter a long time ago...I know it was an angel...but the story is too long to tell here.

    No.

        No, not yet.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        That would be cool if such a thing did happen to me. I've had a few things that seemed to be miraculous happen to me, but no angels. I've always wanted to see one though, but I guess it just isn't meant to be.

      • blanckj 6 years ago

        None that I am aware of.

      • Wanda Fitzgerald 6 years ago from Central Florida

        I've never had an angel encounter but your stories are inspiring. Maybe someday I will have a chance to entertain one. I hope I never meet an angel under the circumstances of a bad car accident though.

      • Titia Geertman 6 years ago from Waterlandkerkje - The Netherlands

        No and I don't think I will, I'm not religious. I don't believe in a God and I don't believe in Angels, but it's ok with me if others do. My mom is the only one in our family who went to church when she still could (she's 99 now).

          Wonderful true stories. I have imagined what it might he to meet an angel, and turned it into a novelette, Where Angels Tread. I nearly called it Entertaining Angels Unaware, as, like the scripture, I wondered how many angels we might have met without knowing it,

          I like your writing style and was looking for one I wanted to bless. I have newly acquired Angel Wings that I love to use! I love to visit lenses where people share some of their own experiences - especially from the heart. I too have been visited by angels. The last time was when I was in the Bank of America, cashing a disability check written on that bank. Many bad memories with BOA - my home loan is with them and I had fought foreclosure with them. I had to cash the check and take a large amount of money across the street to my own bank. Not driving so I had to walk by a bunch of rough looking homeless folks. I felt very vulnerable. As I turned around in that bank I saw the most beautiful figure - huge, neither male or female. I felt totally protected and wrapped in love. You have to be brave to talk about angels - I met a woman who had seen them from birth and she said they told her she would be sent to the mental hospital if she didn't keep her secret until the time was right. Anyway - obviously THIS IS ANGEL BLESSED!

          Love this! Your first story reminds me of this one that I heard, as a parable.

          Same beginning as yours.

          The beggar was refused by a rich man, then a poor man fed the beggar all that the poor man had.

          The poor man had a turn of events that lead to wealth, and the opposite occurred to the wealthy miser.

          The miser asked the village wise man what happened.

          The wise man said that you each received what you gave. The poor man gave all that he had, and you gave a very miserly meal.

          For that beggar was none other than the Lord Himself disguised as a beggar.

          Very positive stories angel blessing other than the Squdioo kind. It's so easy to do something nice for someone and too often we are in too much of a hurry. We should remember that all strive to have a bit of angel within.

          Somehow I knew when I tagged you that your story/stories would be remarkable! You truly have been blessed with your Angel encounters and good for you for being aware enough to know when you are being touched by the Creator and His Messengers. Many don't give the credit where it belongs.

          Wendy, I have tears in my eyes and goose bumps on my arms. I don't even know what to say. Your experiences with Angels is so amazing and wondrous. I commend you for sharing all your stories, and not being selective about only sharing the stories that you know you were at your best. It can be very humbling to admit we could have done better. I have faith that your Angels know that you are a kind, generous person and that you have already passed with flying colors...or should I say Angels? Thank you for sharing this very personal story of your encounters with what the rest of us dare only hope to experience.
