ANGELS AMONG US
From the Message Bible
"Watch out that you don't treat a single one of these childlike believers arrogantly. You realize, don't you, that their PERSONAL ANGELS are constantly in touch with my Father in heaven?"
My Son-in-law Jeff went to college and made close friends for life. When my daughter Andi and Jeff got married one of these friends Darin was the best man.
About four years ago Darin developed colon cancer at the age of 37--he spent many hours on treatment--in and out of remission. Darin waited to get married and have children. And at the time his little boy was a toddler.
A few months ago Darin lost his earthly battle and went to be with Jesus. The last week of his life he was in Hospice House and my children went to see him. Because they had no babysitter our granddaughters went along and waited in the waiting room
Sophie who is 8 years old (Who was healed of Cystic Fibrosis two years ago) said this to her parents as they were entering the building:
MOMMY AND DADDY--YOU KNOW ANGELS LIVE HERE. My daughter said ofcourse they do honey. SHE SAID-- NO YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND I SEE THEM EVERYWHERE. ON THE STEPS. AS THEY ENTERED THE BUILDING SHE SAID SHE SAW THEM ALL OUTSIDE EVERYONE'S ROOM!!!!!!!
My daughter was able later to relate this story to Darin's mother, wife and siblings. What a comfort this was for them. God chooses to use people in our lives to comfort us when we need it the most.
This is a picture of Darin's memorial book--this was taken when he was in one of his remission periods. We was loving life and went to the top of a mountain to declare it.
Hopefully this story touches you all and reminds you that we do have angels who watch over us.
