One day,my mom and I were at the train station waiting for the train, when I noticed a man walking around the platform and telling other people about Jesus. The man came over to us and at first my mom started to ignore him. But I knew he wasn't just an ordinary man. I whispered to my mom that there was something special about him. He was talking about how God will always answer us when we need him. He kept staring at my neck and smiling at me, I didn't know what he was looking at but it was freaking me out. As he continued talking, I could feel that he was an angel, that second, he looked at me and smiled at me as if he knew what I was thinking. When our train came we said good bye to the man. I looked at my neck and I realized that I was wearing a necklace with a cross on it. Thats what he was staring at. If he wasn't an angel, he was definately a special man.
