I Believe in Angels

After having a heart attack, my husband was admitted to our local hospital. Several hours later, the doctors thought it best to have him transferred to a larger and a better equipped hospital. That hospital was 40 minutes away and I was able to ride in the ambulance with him and his nurse. Being transferred to a larger hospital would mean having him go through the emergency room and starting all over with tests, paper work, etc. I wasn’t quite ready for what happened when we arrived at the hospital. We pulled up to the hospital and were flagged down by a dark-skinned man in a white nursing uniform. He had us pull up to a sidewalk, helped us enter through a side door and got all of us (my husband, his nurse and me) on the elevator, and off at the correct floor.

After my husband was admitted and in his room, I realized we never went through the emergency room. Wanting to thank this nurse that helped us, I asked the head nurse where this nurse was. After describing him, she looked at me and said, “We don’t any nurse on this floor that meets this description.” Yes, I believe in angels and I know that the Lord sent an angel there to be with us that day.

Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!

— Hebrews 13:3
