Another Angel Entertained ?

You remember the saying, “I cried because I had no shoes until I saw a man with no feet?”

I’ve been experiencing a skin condition that so far is beyond diagnosis. The use of steroid injections/creams/ointments/gels seem to keep it to a minimum while nothing eliminates it for good.

Yesterday a woman pulled up to a store and got out of her car. I was just getting into ours. She saw Priscilla and was speaking kindly to her. Priscilla started barking. I turned to the woman to say I was sorry for the barking, and what I saw was beyond anything I’ve ever seen. Her face, neck, and all exposed skin was covered with…I don’t know how to describe the condition…cysts, moles, warts, tumors? 

I felt so bad for her, and yet, she didn’t seem to be discomfited by our meeting. Maybe she’s lived with the condition for a long time. Maybe she’s more at peace within herself and God than I am right now. This reminds me that there’s always someone worse off than myself. Maybe she was put in my path for this purpose. Another angel entertained unawares?

Guardian Angel

Did you or do you have a favorite aunt? My favorite aunt was Aunt Marie. She was the sweetest person I knew.
She welcomed me into her home for sleepovers many weekends, holidays, and much of my childhood summers. She rescued me from much turmoil without letting me know what she was doing. She was a sanctuary for me as I joined in on her family’s outings.
One of the saddest times in my childhood was losing Aunt Marie to cancer.
I believe she was my Guardian Angel who came to me in dreams almost every night until I was married. It was then that my Aunt Marie dreams ended. She was able to rest believing I would be safe and happy. Thank you, Aunt Marie
