This is the second story of my two encounters with Angels. I feel so blessed by the Lord for these experiences. My car was acting up, it must have been the spark plugs, it started to shutter, as I pulled off the side of the rode. I got out of my car. A man came up and helped me put the car hood up. He seemed a little odd, a trench coat, a couple days growth of beard and really understanding eyes. I wasn't thinking about an Angel helping me I was just glad to have the help and he seemed to know what to do and the car was ok then. As I closed the hood I turned around to thank him, only there was no one there. At the time I lived in Oklahoma, the spot I was at, was very flat. He could not have walked that fast that I would not have seen him in the distance. When I got in my car, I said to myself oh my gosh that was an angel. It was the only explanation that fit. I look forward to angel encounters they do not come very often, but when they do, there is no doubt later after going over things in your mind that you were visited by an Angel.
Some may never see with earthly eyes these heavenly beings or know that they exist. Many are unaware of the numerous ways they have protected and guided us. We would like to share with you the stories of people who take pleasure in expressing how real angels are.
