Open My Eyes

Location: N/A

By: Marian Grace

One early morning I did not want to open my eyes...for fear the angel would dissapear. I saw my guardian angel! To describe it--I saw wings that were the span of my king bed and had beautiful illumination and sparklers at the ends. Colors that were different than you see right now, more deep and intense and sparklers that were like the kind you used to play with as a kid, but brighter in intesity. A transparent but colorful body draped in a flowing pure white gown. The face was so intensely beautiful but I mostly noticed the wings, because the colors were so spectacular. The angel hovered over me in my bed and I did not want to open my eyes or wake up, for fear it would go away. When I did open my eyes, I was face down with the pillow almost covering my head. I turned over and looked at my statue of our Lady of Fatima and the touch lite was on--without anyone touching it! This, I shared with my husband and later when I did- the light came on by itself again. Thank YOU Blessed Mother for showing me such beauty!
