I believe in angels. I am thankful to my guardian angel for saving me. I was once involved in a car accident several years ago. A group of friends and I were standing on a street corner after hailing a taxi cab. We were saying our farewells and discussing what each of us would bring to a party we were planning on having the following day. Things happened so fast but to me it went in slow motion. I remember seeing a car in my periphery running a red light, the next thing I heard was a crash, saw a car spinning towards us and the next thing I sensed was something next to me (with me)throwing me into the back seat of the taxi cab. When I looked out of the door I saw a car crashed onto the side of our taxicab and my friend pinned under the front door of the taxi. To this day I have replayed that scene over and over in my mind. I don't share the story with everyone lest they think I am crazy. But I do believe to the depths of my soul and being that the presence with me was my guardian angel. They do exist. Bless them for taking care of us.
Some may never see with earthly eyes these heavenly beings or know that they exist. Many are unaware of the numerous ways they have protected and guided us. We would like to share with you the stories of people who take pleasure in expressing how real angels are.
