Angels Among Us

"It is not known precisely where angels dwell--whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God's pleasure that we should be informed of their abode. " Voltaire

Do you believe in angels? Do you believe they walk among us? That they watch over us?
We've all had moments when we are certain something or someone has interceded on our behalf, stepped between us and tragedy...

Something tells you not to take the flight you're scheduled for. You feel silly but at the last minute cancel your reservations. You find out later the plane you would have been on crashed.

You're running ten minutes late because you can't find your cell phone. Then you get caught in a traffic jam where you find out ten minutes ago a car ran a red light and hit another driver head on.

Your loved one is dying. He/she looks at a blank wall and gives a blinding smile of recognition and moments later passes in peace.

You turn down a group of your peers that have invited you to a concert out of town. The carload is killed in an accident on the way back home. If you'd gone with them, you would have been killed as well.

You're coming home alone late at night. Your car stalls out in front of your house. If it would have happened earlier, you would have been stranded.

Has something similiar happened to you? Do you feel someone or something interceded at some point on your behalf, and if so how? And do you think the intercession was an angel that walks among us?


And speaking of angels, I'd like to include some sites of folks that make a difference.
If you know of other organizations that lend a helping hand, please leave a comment with their web address or drop me an email at and I'll add it to the list.

Wonderful post! And yes, I've known the intercession of a protective hand. Several times.

I absolutely do. Too many things have happened to me to believe otherwise.

My great grandmother was floating in and out of consciousness. She was waiting, I believe, for all of us to make it there to say good-bye. From time to time she'd talk to my great grandfather and tell him "not yet."

Anny and Amarinda, me too.

Jae, that sends chills down my spine.
