I am alady with disablities who lives in Malawi in Lilongwe. I usually pray the rosary. SOmetimes when i pray and I dont get a tangible answer I get angry. One day I was so depressed becuase my prayers seamed not answered and I sort of liking having a short sleep on my bed upstairs. Just some few seconds I felt a very nice perfume and when I looked arround the compound down the window I saw no one passing bye I asked my small maid to look who was close bye she said noboday.After a little while I felt some sort of a peace flowing in my heart and like something holding me and I felt a relief. Then after 2 weeks Iwas praying once more it was a Sunday morning after church it was raining heavely outside and I had the same feeling of unwanted on Earth surprsingly the same very strong and nice perfume enveloped me and I stood up to check if therewas someone out side but there was none. I stay with my little twins 5 years old and my neighbours are not close to my house that I could smell their perfume. I have now discovered that either my guardian angle visits me or the Lady of Peace Our Mother the Mother of Jesus when am dipressed and consols me because after that I get a very bing relief i have ever felt before.
