The Tallest Angel

Location: N/A

By: Karine-Geraldine Buchanan

This story happened in 1991. I was an art student in college and I had to walk a few miles with my heavy art work. This was proving to be very difficult however I decided I had to do it since it was evaluation night and I had no money for a cab.

The previous night I had a dream about the name Moses it was being repeated to me in many different languages. As I was walking out of nowhere a black man about 7 feet tall came and asked me if he could help me carry my art work. I told him I still had quite a walk he told me it was no problem. Upon walking I asked him his name and he told me it was Moses, I told him of my dream the night before and he told me it was very interesting.

We finally arrived and he told me I would be okay from now on and I thanked him. I picked up my things and turned back to have a last look at him and he was nowhere to be seen. I believe he is, always was and always will be my guardian angel. I thank God for assigning him to me.
