TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, TWICE?

THE ADVENTURES OF D & T

How many times can you count, using your fingers and/or toes, that you were blessed by a higher power?  Can you count or figure out the ways how many times you had an angel, in human form, come directly into your path?  I don’t know how many times this has happened to me personally, but I can count possibly twice that my wife and I dealt with a blessing we didn’t see coming at all.  The two accounts I can recall aren’t long and drawn out experiences, but just something I wanted share with you and see what you think.

The first one I can remember was when my wife and I were shopping in one of the craft stores, Jo Ann’s or Michael’s.  On this particular day we were inside searching for certain items, I believe for my wife, and we headed down one aisle.  While we were looking at different items in the aisle, this lady walks up behind us, out of nowhere, and starts talking to us.  Within the first few seconds of us having this conversation, she hands my wife and I a coupon worth 50% off for anything in the store if we spend over a certain amount.  We were definitely surprised to receive something like this as she possibly passed other customers in the store to hand us this coupon.

We told her thank you and expressed our appreciation for the sudden gift.  As we continued down the aisle, I decided to turn around and see if I can find this lady for whatever reason.  I believe she couldn’t have been gone from us for no more than thirty seconds to a minute.  To my surprise she was nowhere to be found.  Now, it is quite possible that she was truly a human person being very nice and giving up her 50% coupon, but if so she moved very quickly.  My wife and I spoke about this situation for a while and never forgot that moment of how she bypassed others in the store to bless us with this generosity.  In our second time dealing with another mysterious woman, my wife and I were in Sports Authority, I think, and shopping for new shoes.

While we were in one aisle searching of what pair of boots my wife should get, this mysterious woman walks up to us from behind and quickly hands us a savings coupon.  She didn’t say much as to basically tell us that she had no need for it and wanted us to have in case we needed it.  My wife and I looked at each other and thanked her for the generosity.  Once again I walked down the aisle and see if I could find her leaving the store, but never saw her near the counter.  We continued shopping for another several minutes and still never saw the woman.  Now, I know I was much quicker this time in seeing if I could find her, but once again I was unsuccessful.  This struck us with disbelief as we tried to make sense of what just happened, but knew that it must’ve been a blessing from God.

Both incidents came close within each other and something that we never expected to ever happen to us.  It hasn’t happened to us since that I can think of, but this definitely lets us know that blessings can strike anywhere, anytime and by anyone.  I’ve had numerous angels in human form come to my rescue, and when you turn around they are nowhere to be found, but still as I get older I am amazed how this happens.  Pay attention to your surroundings out there and understand that anyone can be a blessing to your life, and how much they can impact your path through said life.  Some are known right away, others are known as time goes on when your eyes aren’t closed or blocked.  You never know!
