My story began whilst befriending someone with very dangerous friends. I fell in love with him over along period of time. What i didnt know was he had his friends spy on me. I visited him at his home to be confronted with a very cruel summary of what i felt was a dissection of my character. I walked away, feeling lost and confused and somewhat hurt! I went to the Cathedral in Lincoln City, UK, after i left his home. I sat outside for awhile on a bench. I noticed i was sitting on a terrace called 'Jesus Healing Terrace'. That was my first realisation that i was meant to be there. I then went into the Cathdral, determined to admire the architecture and beautiful art work around the building, and take my mind off the experience i'd just gone through. I stood beside a huge pillar, looked up at the cieling to take in its glorious work. I felt an uncontrollable sob come up from no where, i couldnt control it. At this point something caught my eye on the ground to the left of me. It was so amazing i had to look away, give my mind time to clear and then look back. It was an Angel. It looked as though it had been sculped by a master craftsman in the ground, but the eyes glowed an irridescent blue shining light. It didn't look male or female. Its head was slightly cocked to the right, as though in sympathy and listening. I felt the most amazing love, compassion, understanding and forgiveness. My legs just gave way... I fell to the floor, and that was when i heard the singing. It sounded like thousands of Angels. I later found out i had been standing in a part of the Cathedral called 'The Choir of Angels'
I thank God and Jesus every day for allowing me to feel his unwavering love. I share it with all i meet, and get very excited telling people how much he loves us all. All we have to do is open our hearts, and let him in.
Thank you for letting me share my story (If you publish it)
