Starting ten years ago my mother Rose Margaret passed away suddenly after a short illness. This was devastating for our family. Then two years after that my father Dale passed away after a short illness. This left my family feeling lost. I am the oldest of four adult children and I now felt the reality of our mortality. Several years later After watching the nightly news and after listening to all the bad things happening in the world I went to bed feeling sad. I started saying my nightly prayers and cried and told my parents how much I loved and missed them. I must have fallen asleep during this time and the next thing I remember was waking up startled and with eyes wide awake saw white translucent angelic looking spirits floating above me. At first I was scared and opened and closed my eyes several times, then the next thing I remember was the touch of a hand on my right shoulder, at that very moment I had a sense of pure calm and peace. I remember feeling like everything was going to be okay and I closed my eyes and fell asleep. I remembered this experience the next morning when I woke up and felt like I had experienced something very special. This reaffirmed my belief in angels.
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.
