Last week I was snowed in and my husband was out of town on business. Not only could I not get my front door opened due to the snow drifting, I could not find the shovel and I knew we had run out of the ice melt stuff for the walk. I felt really trapped, but also blessed that I didn’t have to get out. I did some praying about the situation and the next day I was supposed to pick my husband up from the airport. I had no idea how that was going to happen since I could not get to the truck and our street was still a mess.
About mid-morning I got a call from a friend who offered to pick him up for me and bring him home. She has an SUV that does pretty well in the snow. I didn’t ask her. She just figured I needed help and volunteered. I said a grateful “yes” to her offer. So even if I could not get out, he could still get home.
Later that day another friend drove to my house, her shovel in hand, and shoveled my walk and driveway and uncovered the truck out from under the snow and ice. Then she insisted on taking me out for coffee. Since I had not been out of the house for 3 days, I gladly went with her. On the way home, she offered to take me to the grocery store to stock up on supplies.
When my first friend fetched my husband from the airport, I had dinner waiting on the table for him. He was so grateful since his travel schedule did not allow him to find time for lunch and it was late evening by the time he got home. This angel also came with ice melt in hand, so I wouldn’t be stranded again.
Oh and by the way, we finally found the shovel. It had blown over in the blizzard and was buried under about 6 inches of snow. No matter! My angels were looking out for me! I am so blessed!
One more angel story:
We have had a bad year money wise and are just now trying to dig our way out of a financial hole.
Last month we were $100 short of paying our mortgage with no jobs in sight. I have no words for what happened a few Sundays ago. I was sitting in church before the service praying to somehow find a way to come up with the $100 we needed. Someone did something so nice and unexpected for us. They slipped an envelope into my purse with $100 in cash in it. When I figured out who it was and went to thank them, they just said “We love you guys and we felt you needed it.” I have no idea how they knew, but suddenly they were there to help.
In all of these instances, God surely must have intervened on our part, because there is no other way they could have known what we needed at the exact time of need.
All I can say, is thank you my friends and Thank God for all of you!
