Car Angel

Location: N/A

By: LISA MENINO

Maybe you have experienced doing something without thinking about the consequences. This is a story about just that.

It was 1999 and I was working at a computer store at the time. My husband and I were struggling to pay our bills and maybe one day have a single family home we could call our own. My parents were living in Florida and my dad at the time was not doing very well physically.
I and my husband wanted a new house and to be near my parents to be of help.
I decided to put in a transfer to the Florida computer store and did just that.
Now my brother was to be married that June so I decided to make his cake and he wanted my sister and I also to sing at the wedding. After that I was feeling agitated not knowing why. My husband also. He was to work until finding a job in Florida and then meet me there. It just was making us feel uneasy. On the way home that day from the wedding, we were headed straight and as we approached an island in the road separating the road we could not see a car coming then we did only to be me by another car that coinsidentely was following the spouse to cross over into a street but when the second car came my husband could not see her and laid on the breaks but to no avail. I was in my seat belt however my shoes were off and it was a small car so my legs went into the dash board making an impression and before I knew it I was writhing in pain from 2 broken legs. I was screaming from the pain at the same time as being angry at the situation. When I looked out my opened window and a woman with such a beautiful rosy cheeked face said to me "do not be afraid God is with you" I heard the words but when i looked back up to thank her after apologizing for my outbursts she had disappeared. In the hospital healing, a woman came into my room and brought me a Dunkin Donuts coffee(which was my favorite)She wanted to know how I got 2 broken legs and when i proceeded to tell her i was to be transferred to start a new job in a couple of weeks in Florida she told me "when God sends you this kind of sign take a hint" if you were suppose to go he would have allowed it". When leaving the hospital no one knew of this nurse when I gave them the discription. She said her name was Lisa.The head nurse did not hear of even an intern with that name. I guess I took the hint. ; )

Irenaeus of Lyon wrote these words - The glory of God gives life; those who see God receive life. For this reason, God-who cannot be grasped, comprehended, or seen-allows Himself to be seen, comprehended, and grasped by men, that He may give life to those who see and receive Him. It is impossible to live without life, and the actualization of life comes from participation in God, while participation in God is to see God and enjoy His goodness.
Learning from St Irenaeus How to Know God

This great defender of the faith insisted on the central claim of Christianity: God can be known and loved-indeed, that is why He came ... continue reading
