I am doubly blessed in this life. First, when I could not go on, in and of myself, ...when I was in a very, very dark place in my life....where family whom I loved betrayed me, and those I had thought friends turned out not to be,...all of them had abandoned me. I was alone,....or so I thought.
The Light came. I knew it came from Heaven. It came in the form of the largest Angel I could have ever imagined. It was a Vision of loveliness,...[not some illusion, not some delusion,]...a real, honest-to-goodness Angel. The skirt of the angel's gown touched at my ankles. I looked up and her head was high in the sky almost touching the clouds themselves. I was sitting in a garden, praying to Christ Jesus whom I was sure had also decided I wasn't worth the trouble it took to know me... I could see right through that Angel... and Yes, Maya Angela, she was the colour of water,..clear and ever-changing blues, purples, pinks, turquiose-colours,...an all embracing Light.
Miserable being that I was, who thought myself unworthy to be alive, became instantly worthy to be embraced by this beautiful Light. And then, I saw Him, standing just beyond the celestial Light, peering at me with those most piercing eyes twinkling above an absolute-accepting smile. "I am always here for you." Those words sang in my mind while a burst of warmth filled my body from head to toe. In that instant of time, I knew I was healed,...I knew something deep inside of me had change... This memory comes back to me many times over the years of my life.
Today was one of those days. My friend is very ill. She has been one of those....once-in-a-lifetime friends, always encouraging, praising, happy to be friends with me no matter what. And I love her so much. Please pray for my friend, Sandy. I am sure that God is going to heal her. He is a healing God and she is a faithful believer in His miracles. She is a giver of Love and there is just not enough of those kind of friends in our lives. I am very selfish. I want her to continue to bless my life. Her road to good health has been perilious this past year. She just lost a good friend a few months ago. And she has been sad and depressed about it. I haven't spent nearly enough time with her. I promise that will change and that change will start today. Pray for Sandy and pray for me to be a more consistent and loving friend to her.
