A Visit

I was reading Drunken Wisdom and this sweet and tender story reminded me of an experience I had in my teens.

One summer evening, I was babysitting my pastorís three children. The children had gone to bed around 9pm and so I sat watching tv for the rest of the night.

At some point during the evening, I got up to go check on the children and as I began to walk down the hall, I became aware of a presence standing at the front door between me and the children. This person was male, wearing a white robe; his legs were spread and his arms were akimbo. I knew it was an angel. As I walked past him he pivoted on one foot so as to face me as I walked down the hall. When I returned, he pivoted back on his foot, his back to the door and his face towards me.

For the rest of the evening he stood guard over me and the children, moving only when I moved. I recall feeling a little unnerved at having somebody watching my every move but I was more comforted by his presence than afraid.

Iíve had other angelic experiences since then, but none quite like this. And while I have no idea what he was protecting us from, I have every intention of asking him some day!

Psalm 91:11 ďFor He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go.Ē

I have no doubt that it was very important and that he needed to make himself known to you so that you knew how important it was for him to be there. Members of my family have had similar experiences. It is comforting to know someone is standing watch over us.
