I wake each day with a prayer. This morning I had so many prayer requests and so much gratitude on my mind, I fell back asleep and woke up with a song on my lips not even related to the requests. I wonder if God feels as overwhelmed with all the major and minor problems. I often think my piddly problems are a nusiance.

I sometimes just ask His angels to guide and guard my kids, grandkids and friends in need. I think this is as direct a line to heaven, especially if you believe that each of us has a guardian angel.

Case in point, last evening my daughter had car troubles, and her husband was gone. She called Auto Zone who advised, but could not do diagnostics on a car in her driveway. She asked if they knew of a nearby auto mechanic. She telephoned the person they reccomended in her small town. He offered to stop by her house on his way home. That in itself is way beyond the call of duty. He looked at my daughter with surprise and she recognized him, but she couldn't quite place where she knew him from.

He said, "Years ago, you lived on my road, and you found my lost Great Pyerenes and you kept him for days and fed him, and then you found me! This is the least I can do for you."

The car ended up being a minor problem, but in a very big way, I know the angels were at work yesterday, for I do not believe in coincidence.

Hi Linda....Oh yeah, the angels are definitely present in our lives. Your daughter can now testify to that. Take care. Thanks for sharing the story. Good one. Susan

Angels are more than a superstitious, nostalgic fantasy...they are very real. Twice in my life I've had the wonderful experience of seeing them and let me tell you...they are POWERFUL!
And yes, we each have at least one assigned to us. I say at least...because I know my daughter has two...I saw them! Fantastic story about your daughter, and how God worked it all for good!

I believe! Angels...and the power of karma...that everything happens for a reason. Glad your daughter found help...it's stressful to have car trouble/house problems and not be able to handle it yourself! Hate that helpless feeling. Thanks for sharing ; )
