is wonderful knowledge, to know we never walk alone.
NOTICE AT THE END, THE DATE
THE CANDLE WAS STARTED.
GONNA GIVE YOU GOOSE BUMPS.
I am not going to be the one who
lets it die. I found it believable --
angels have walked beside me
all my life--and they still do.
A young university student
was home for the summer.
She had gone to visit some friends
one evening and time passed quickly
as each shared their various
experiences of the past year.
She ended up staying longer than
planned, and had to walk home alone.
She wasn't afraid because it was a
small town and she lived only
a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the
tall elm trees, Diane asked
"God" to keep her safe from
harm and danger.
When she reached the alley,
which was a shortcut to her house,
she decided to take it.
However, halfway down the alley
she noticed a man standing at
the end as though he were waiting for her.
She became uneasy and began
to pray, asking for "God's" protection.
Instantly a comforting feeling
of quietness and security wrapped around
her, she felt as though someone
was walking with her.
When she reached the end of
the alley, she walked right past
the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in
the newspaper that a young girl
had been raped in the same alley
just twenty minutes after she
had been there.
Feeling overwhelmed by this
tragedy and the fact that it
could have been her, she
began to weep
Thanking the Lord for her safety
and to help this young woman,
she decided to go to the police station.
She felt she could recognize
the man, so she told them her story.
The police asked her if she would
be willing to look at a lineup to
see if she could identify him.
She agreed and immediately
pointed out the man she had
seen in the alley the night before.
When the man was told he
had been identified, he immediately
broke down and confessed.
The officer thanked Diane for
her bravery and asked if there was
anything they could do for her.
She asked if they would ask
the man one question?
Diane was curious as to why
he had not attacked her.
When the policeman
asked him, he answered,
Because she wasn't alone.
She had two tall men
walking on either side of her."
Moral of the story:
Don't underestimate the power of Prayer!
Gives ya goose bumps, doesn't it!
This is to all of you who
mean something to me,
I pray for your happiness.
