Have you had an encounter with your guardian angel yet? Our readers shared with us their extraordinary stories!
It was past midnight and I was on my way home from work. The shortcut I was driving through was deserted, and I didn’t realize that I started falling asleep at the wheel and was about to crash into a pole. Out of nowhere I heard urgent honking from the car behind me. It was flashing its lights at me too. I pulled over and the driver rolled down his window. He asked if I was okay and handed me a can of instant coffee. He said that he’d accompany me until we got off that road, and I agreed because I was still sleepy. I was the first one to turn onto the highway, and was waiting for him to follow—but no car came after me! I guess it was my guardian angel protecting me from harm’s way.
Tender Loving Care
The day before my son’s first birthday party, he had a sudden onset of high fever. We gave him paracetamol and he went to sleep early. He sleeps beside his yaya since my husband and I work nights. That night, I was quite busy at the office, checking in on my son from time to time. His fever didn’t go down and I didn’t want to wake him up to give him medicine. At around 2 am, his yaya was woken up by some movement: She saw a figure in white wiping my son’s brow— as if giving him a sponge bath. Thinking it was me, she went back to sleep. The next morning, when my son woke up, he didn’t have a fever anymore! I believe it was my son’s guardian angel, looking after him and making sure he didn’t miss his own birthday party.
I do believe that God is really good all the time, and He sends His angels to us whenever we are in need. I am witness to His goodness in all things, even in the mababaw situations I have been in. Being a single mom of two teenagers and with a meager income, I am financially burdened. But when things get really bad, I am saved by God’s angels in the form of a friend or a colleague. I can’t recall the number of times when a friend or a former student would offer me a ride to or from work, or when a colleague would treat me to lunch. Life is difficult but I am able to endure because in these moments of salvation, I see the Lord’s face.
