Angels saved me twice

Location: N/A

By: Tricia Coleman

I was swimming one day and nobody was on the beach except myself and my best friend. I went out for a swim and Monica stayed on the beach and fell asleep. we were nurses on night duty and we sometimes went to the beach instead of going to bed. Anyway, although I can swim, I went out too far and it was icy cold, and both legs got cramp and I couldn't move and I panicked and went down twice, then I saw a man swimming towards me from the ocean and he wore a swim cap like in the thirties, and I felt myself being brought to the beach and deposited thereon and then he dissapeared, my friend ran to the water when she saw me lying there and she pumped the water out of me. I told her about the man but see didn't see anyone but me. I'm convined it was an angel.
The second encounter happened about 4/5 years later. I'm an asthmatic and had a very bad chest infection and was also stressed out, and had great difficulty breathing, so I took extra tablets hoping they would work quicker; a stupid thing for a nurse to do. Anyway I began to drift off to sleep and I was alone in the house, and it was around ten p.m. that evening; my landlady was on holiday. All of a sudden, I heard a voice out of no where saying: "Get up, put on your clothes and go out." I said, "Go away and leave me sleep." But the voice was very insistant, and demanded, yet again, and again: "Get up, put on your clothes and go out" I did what I was told and went to the bus stop to go to the hospital, but I collapsed at the bus stop and the other people couldn't rouse me so they sent for an ambulance, and the doctors told me if I hadn't got medical treatment that night I would have died, I'm convinced it was my Guardian Angel who saved me a second time, and no doubt but we are saved again and again from all kinds of disasters - thanks be to God for our heavenly guardians
