My guardian angel
When Woman’s World reader Amy Genzlinger of Fort Myers, Florida, was in pain and on the brink of despair, an angel appeared! She writes:
The summer before my senior year of high school, my father passed away. I was devastated and became depressed.
Then that fall, I was in a terrible car accident and suffered a crushed pelvis, broken ribs and internal bleeding. The pain was constant and unbearable, and my body felt as broken as my heart that was still aching over the loss of my dad. I just didn’t want to live anymore.
One night, a nurse called my mom to say they were very concerned because I wasn’t eating or drinking. Mom called me in tears, begging me to be strong and fight. I was in so much pain and so sad over Dad, I honestly felt like I had no fight left in me.
That night I prayed, God, I am scared, sad, lonely and in so much pain! Please either help me get better or let me die and be with my dad.
Shortly after, I fell asleep and dreamed an angel came to my room, took my hand and said, “Come with me.” “I can’t walk,” I replied. The angel just smiled, and urged me to go with her.
I took her hand and was astonished. The pain was gone and I was able to walk. Soon I was in a meadow filled with beautiful flowers. I found myself running through the flowers, feeling incredibly light.
Next, I was at a banquet table filled with delicious food. I could “feel” people all around me laughing and talking. I couldn’t see who anyone was, but I knew that my dad was there. The angel encouraged me to eat, telling me that I needed to gain back my strength.
Suddenly, I was starving and began to eat. “My guardian angel gave me the courage to fight!”
The angel took my hands. “Amy, you can do this. You
need to go back now, but I will be here helping you.”
I woke up in my hospital bed. The pain was back, but I felt hopeful and stronger. From that day, I began to heal and was soon healthy and joyful, and grateful to know that I have a guardian angel with me.
