I have wanted to do this post for so long, but a whole list of excuses came up on why I didn't. So today we're doing it.
About three weeks ago, I read 'Angels Walking' by Karen Kingsbury, the first in a brand new series. Which speaking of, the second one comes out today! Please someone buy this for me!
Her book was amazing (as usual). She writes Christian fiction, just like I want to. This is not the first book of hers I've read (the entire Baxter series was amazing), but it was probably one of my favorites. Ever. I won't say too much because I don't want to spoil anything, you'll have to endure the torture of having to go to school/work and get interrupted every 5 seconds of the day while trying to read it like I did. This book took leave me alone to a whole nother level. Anyways, it's about God and angels, and it's so true. I believe in angels, and I believe that they are on the earth. The Bible specifically says it in Hebrews 13:2, Do not neglect hospitality, because through it some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Translations vary.)
And I've witnessed one myself...
My angel encounter:
I was on my way home from my grandparent's house, and we were stopping at Sparky's, a big rest area. I walked in there with my phone and my mom and I used the rest room. I guess I must have set my phone down, and then forgot about it...
At this point we were checking out, and I hadn't even noticed my phone's disappearance. A girl who looked about 17 approached us. She looked like she had reddish hair, but I couldn't really tell because it was up in a messy bun. I think she had glasses, and she was wearing a plaid white jacket, leggings, and boots. She mumbles, "Is this yours?" pointing to my phone, wrapped in its pink and purple Otterbox case.
I quickly took it, and just as I was about to say thank you, she was gone. I don't even know where her car was. I didn't even see her enter the rest area, but I saw her walk to the bathroom.
That's why I think she's an angel. She was fleeting.
Of course, I don't know if she's actually a real angel, but real or not, she will always be my personal angel - I mean, she saved my phone.
But something tells me she is a real angel. :)
