Hello, just thought I would share what I feel was a angel encounter. My husband was at the time, who had cancer of the lung was still alive and in bed with me. I seemed to sort of wake up but not in the normal sense, and noticed a lot of light flooding from my door into the room, and there was a figure in this light, but I could not make out the features very well, and he was very tall and seemed to be in a garment of white flowing to the ground. I did not hear words in the ordinary sense, but he kind of said to me, that he would keep the evil one away, and it was as if he was sending some comfort and I think he was maybe preparing me for my husband's death as well as waiting maybe for my husband to pass on.
I am not sure why I was able to see such a vision as I am not a very religious person, well not in the sense that one would expect a person who has seen an angel to be etc, and have made lots of mistakes in my life and plenty of room to try and be a better person etc. Anyway that is how I see it, and if anyone should have seen this angel it should I feel have been my husband as although not perfect etc, he was a good man and always wanted to help people etc.
There was comfort about this angel as well. There also seemed to be something on his head like a kind of head covering.
I think the message is to us all, that in times of death we are not alone and also to assure us that our loved ones are being taken care of and that they are not alone either. God Bless
