Angels

Location: N/A

By: Debra Smith

Approximately 12 years ago my boyfriend left me for another woman. I was very hurt over that. I was a Protestant at the time. I didn't attend church that often. I got up one morning, lit a candle, and prayed for God to show me He was there. I went to work that morning, and approximately four hours later I heard the sound of flocking wings. I looked up and saw angels everywhere. They were very bright white angels. I was sitting at this long table. They moved towards me very fast on both sides of the table. I felt one touch me on the shoulder. As they moved in, they disappeared. I wasn't able to see their faces because they were moving so fast. This forever changed my life. I will never forget it.
