A Smiling Face

When I was about 10 years old I was on the top bunk of a bed I shared with my sister. The railing had broken and had not been replaced yet. I rolled over in the middle of the night and awoke realizing that I was falling out of bed. I closed my eyes and braced myself for the impact of the floor. Just inches from the floor, I felt something catch me and gently lower me to the floor. I opened my eyes and saw a beautiful face smiling down at me and then it disappeared. I had no bruises, soreness, or injuries.

I believe that was my guardian angel I saw.

The second time was in college. I was driving home for the weekend. It was evening, snowing, and my tires had poor tread. The two lane road had a lot of curves and I was probably driving a little too fast. Sure enough I hit a patch of ice on one of the curves and my car did a 360 spin. When the car stopped, I was in the opposite lane. I was in such shock I couldn't move. Suddenly my car seemed to be pushed back to the proper side of the road by some invisible force. A few seconds later a large truck came around the curve where my car had been only a few seconds before. I should have died. I drove to the nearest rest stop and parked the car.

I cried and thanked God or my guardian angel, whoever moved my car, for saving me.
