This story is short but beautiful. I took ill back in 1995-2001. I was in need of a spiritual connection, and started to pray. I knew i had to get into a christ believing church, so I wanted some inspiration from God. I had it on my mind for quite some time at this point. I went out riding with a friend this one evening around 6:00. We went by a church that had just been rebuilt. I often would see it and wanted to check it out. We were looking for the times of service on the outside and as we were looking at the sign outdoors I saw spiritually two angels with wings whom were small like the age of a 9 or 10year old child. They were talking and I could see them spiritually they looked up at us and a sense of peace came over me. They were standing behind two short bushes. I knew my prayers had been answered. I was due for surgery and I just knew everything was going to be okay. I almost jumped out of the car and kept looking back. That church has over 3,ooo members today and that day it only had about 100. I know i was touched by those two 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.
