Lights out! -SkyWatch Friday


Time for another angel story! This one comes from Charlotte, who gave me permission to tell her story.
.
One very dark night, Charlotte and her husband Bill were driving home through a mountainous region in California known as Malibu Canyon. In those days the road was extremely dangerous, sporting only two lanes, no guard rails or lights, with a sheer drop to the canyon floor below.
..
They had just driven into the most dangerous area of the road, when suddenly their car lights went out! It was a moonless, wet, wintry night, and they could not see the road ahead. With their vehicle's lights off, the oncoming cars would not be able to see them coming. It was a situation which could end in the worst kind of disaster.
.
Charlotte must have been terrified. She wrote, "...so I prayed for the lights to come on, and they did." Inexplicably the car's lights stayed on until they drove out of danger. When they were safely through the canyon, the lights went out again--forever.
.
The next day, an astonished mechanic told Charlotte's husband Bill, there was no way the lights could have come back on again--the electrical was cut clear through.
.
Charlotte believes there were angels holding those wires together, and writes, "...just hope they didn't singe their wings!"
.
Angels are indeed watching over us!

  2. yes, a wonderful story.
    at first i wondered if it was my mother and fathers story, same names, a road we traveled often, sounds like her words, but my father was not mechanical at all. So happy that their lights came on to get them home to safety. It is good to remember to ask for help.
