“An Angel Story”
(By: Rev. Mary - as seen in the Inspired Buffalo)

I had put a package of angel sprinkles (the small gold colored foil angels) in my purse. The package was opened, and the angels fell out into my purse. When I discovered what had happened, I put the loose angels into my coin purse, a little change purse inside my purse.

On the way home, I was at the store paying for something, and change was required. I dug in, got the change, and gave it to the sales person. I did not realize that there were also angels stuck in with the money!

She said, "Oh, angels for me! Thank you! Come back and see me anytime!"

This happened to me several times that day, with almost the same reaction at different places, with different people. So now I keep the angels in there and always dispense them with the change.

This little practice has led to some interesting conversations. When I did go back to the same store where the lady received the first angels, she told me how much she treasured them and kept them by her bed. She said she gave one to her daughter, too. She then told me about her personal healing experience.

She said, "I don't usually tell people this, but I was paralyzed as a child. I could not walk or talk. My grandparents were very devout, and my grandfather told me that if I really believed in God, I would be healed. He said that God was inside me, and if my faith was strong enough, I would be well. I believed him; he was my grandfather. I started praying, I really believed. Within a year, I was totally healed! I am so grateful to God for this healing!"

I gave her some more angel sprinkles, and again she acted like I had given her a million dollars! She also told me that the first time she saw me, she thought I was an angel! (blush...) She said she could feel the energy, and it made her turn around and look at me.

I told her that, if she felt anything through me, it was God; I was only the instrument. What a lovely experience!

I plan on always keeping the little gold angels in my change purse and dispensing them everywhere. When I do, I don't say anything, I just give them with the change.
