My Guardian Angel
When Woman’s World reader Patricia Haley of Lutherville, Maryland, needed relief for her aching back, she asked the angels for help—and they answered! She writes:
“I now know the angels will do anything to help us stay healthy!” Patricia marvels
Iwalk every day for exercise, but when my back began to hurt, I realized that my shoes had logged too many miles and needed to be replaced.
I know how important it is to wear good, supportive shoes. But on a tight budget, I couldn’t afford the kind of walking shoes that I wanted. So I decided to go to a nearby dollar store to see if they had anything that might work for me until I could afford to buy a better pair.
I was in a bad mood because I knew that I needed to stay on my walking program for my health. But if I couldn’t find decent shoes, I’d have to stop until I saved up.
“Angels, please help me find a pair of good shoes that I can afford. I’m trying to stay in shape here,” I prayed.
As I got out of my car, I noticed a sign that read
Sidewalk sale on the far side of the shopping center in front of a shoe store I’d never noticed.
When did that open? I wondered as I headed into the dollar store.
I have small feet, but they’re wide, so I have an especially hard time finding shoes. As I feared, the dollar store didn’t have anything suitable that fit me.
As I stepped outside, my eyes once again fell on the shoe store that was having a sidewalk sale. May as well take a look, I thought, wandering over.
As I got closer, I saw a few dozen shoeboxes stacked outside and began looking through the boxes to see if any were my size. Just as I was about to give up, I saw a pair of my favorite brand—in my size!
Excited, I tried them on. They fit perfectly! And the cost was half the regular price. I put my old shoes in the
box and went inside the store.
“I’m wearing my new shoes,” I told the clerk as he rang up my purchase. “My old ones were worn out and causing my back to hurt!”
“Sounds like you got these at just the right time then,” the clerk said.
As I returned to my car, my back was no longer hurting, and my mood had lifted.
The angels had
known I was serious about caring for my health, and they had granted my request.
Those shoes lasted far longer than I ever expected, and I will always be grateful to my guardian angel for helping me find them!
“Our guardian angels are dedicated to our health and wellbeing,” says Kyle Gray. “Their power to help us is unlimited, and Patricia’s intuitive ability to understand this helped the angels move even more swiftly to assist her.
“Angels are dedicated healers, and their capacity to restore our health goes beyond our understanding of what’s possible!
“With their all-knowing wisdom, the angels knew Patricia needed a good pair of shoes to ease her back pain so they made sure she got them!”
