Dad had just passed away. Mumsie was standing in the kitchen weeping into the sudsy water of the sink as she washed the dishes. She was filled with sadness and dark despair.
As she tells it, "Suddenly I felt a presence. I turned and saw a giant angel standing behind me in the kitchen. He wore a helmet, held a great sword and was twice as tall as I was. When I looked into his eyes, my mouth flew open in astonishment. As he faded into the air--he smiled a sweet, crooked smile. I knew that angel had been sent by God to help me in my time of sorrow. I am so thankful for God's gift of comfort."
Sometimes we are allowed to see those whom God has sent to watch over us. When we are given that opportunity, it is a moment of unspeakable joy and surprise!
Dear Friends, no matter what terrible burden, or unmanageable situation you are facing just now, you are not alone.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
~ Psalm 34:7
