While I was still in high school,one day I was coming home from school angry about some insignificant thing that happened that day. In that state I was approaching a large crossroads on my way home. Given the thought I was completely focused on the anger I felt, I didn't really perceive what was going on around me. All I was thinking about was how to get home as soon as possible. I remember I saw the red light for the cars going in the other direction, but the people standing at the crossing were still waiting for the green light. I didn't care much about it so I (looking at the floor and in my own thoughts) went crossing the road. Suddenly I felt very warm and "for some reason" I lifted my head only to see a white van rushing as much as a millimetre away from my face. Not to mention that I found myself standing a bit further back from where I was standing a second ago, knowing that I definitely didn't move willingly as I was angry, rushing to cross the road. I also know that happened only a few days after I read a book about the angels and their presence in our lives. It was an interesting way of "turning theory into practice", wasn't it?;)...Thank you, God!!!
