angel of comfort

Location: N/A

By: ROSEMARY MORSE

In March of 2009, I underwent a complete hip replacement. Before my surgery and while I was being wheeled into the OR, I prayed that the Lord stay with me and surround me with His angels.

I woke up in my room, I thought alone, but as I looked around, in the semi-darkness, I saw a man dressed in white standing not far from my bed. He did not speak or move, but his presence brought me such comfort through the pain of my surgery. I fell back asleep and when I awoke, he was still there standing in the same place. This happened two more times.
The next morning, my sisteer called me and I told her that a nurse was with me in my room all night, which is what I believed.

During the day, I inquired into who the male nurse was on duty last night and was told there were no male nurses on duty on my floor.

Later that evening, a male nurse came in and I asked him. He told me that he was the only male nurse on my floor and did not work last night.

This troubled me greatly because I was so sure of what I saw and the comfort it brought me.

I then remembered my prayers and believe to this day that theere was a presence in my room and since there was no explanation for it, it was one of God's Angels, sent to comfort me during this time of pain and anxiety.
