When I was 6 or 7 years old, I almost got hit by a train walking home from school. I was with a couple of my friends, both a year younger than I was. Usually the lights flash, the ramp closes and I can hear the loud noise of the train coming. On this day, the lights did not flash. The ramp didn't go down and I didn't hear the train until it was very close by. I walked across the train tracks, stopping midway when I heard a group of people yelling at me. I couldn't hear what they were saying. I turned to my left and saw a train coming at me, full speed. I couldn't move. I was paralyzed with fright. At that moment I felt something give me a push and I ran across the tracks to the other side. I was safe and my friends were safe. A human did not save my life that day. An angel did. I never saw it but I felt it. I never told anyone about the spirit that saved me but from that day on, I believed in angels with my whole heart. Thank you to the Angel that was with me and my friends that day. I love you.
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.
