Angel Escorts

Sandi sat by the hospital bed, listening to the faint breathing of her dear Friend, as she lay dying.  She closed her eyes and the tears streamed down her cheeks.  Her heart was breaking.  Suddenly through her grief she felt the presence of angels all around her and an amazing comfort enfolded her heart.

One breath--then another--then none.

Then the angels were gone--and so was her Friend.  These gentle bright beings had come to escort the girl into heaven--leaving a great comfort to fill the hole her friend had left behind.


  1. Wow. What a wondrous moment - a time of comfort and beauty in the midst of grief and pain.

  2. She told me about it this weekend. SO sad--yet such joy

  3. I definitely believe in angels and that was well written

  4. Yes, I believe they are always there to comfort us in our deepest hours.... to raise the departing to our lord. Beautiful story..
