Angel of Light
From: Story type: Angel Location: Maryland Source: Form Submission
This past winter I went to a meeting at my church. In this small community people can get offended very easily and look for offense. The man who had called the meeting stood up to speak. He opened with a prayer, "God, let me say only what you would have me say and let everyone hear only what you would have them hear." He said more, but this stuck out to me.
He continued on with the business of the meeting and immediately I saw a light behind his head. I adjusted my sitting position to see the source and there was just a wall. The light also did not give off light, it was light. Then it wasn't just behind his head but from head to foot and slightly taller. Then I made out a form and a hand of light rested on his shoulder. Then it was gone. It didn't fade, it didn't blink out it was just gone and I was staring hard.
I never said anything to him, but it was an amazing experience. This is not the only time I have seen the Angel of Light. When I was 16 I was at my grandfather's wake at the funeral home. My great Aunt Alice came up to me and said something. I was sitting in a chair and she was standing so I had to look up at her and there was a bright light behind her. I thought there was just recessed lighting in the ceiling and didn't think a whole lot about it. Two weeks later she died.
I remembered the last time I saw her and the light behind her. I thought maybe this was a sign and maybe it was just a ceiling light behind her.
Some years later I was in that same funeral home in that same room for
a friends grandmother had passed away. Everything was the same, the
rose colored walls, the formal furniture, the lamps at each end and not
one single light in the ceiling!
