Angels in Disguise

Here are a few stories from Catherine Lanigan’s new book about angels.  You know God spelled backward is ?Dog!  Stormy

Lanigan recounted a number of stories where messages, either subtle or overt, were conveyed from people who had passed away.  One such tale involved a man whose mother loved to save old pennies.  Despondent following her death, the man went to visit her grave and discovered a row of 20 shiny pennies on top of the gravestone.  On a personal level, Lanigan shared the story of seeing her sister three months after she had died.  During the encounter, Lanigan’s sister told her to see a doctor because “your heart is broken.”  Taking the advice, she went to the doctor and was diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia.  “That’s the kind of warning that I want people to pay attention to,” she said, even if the advice seems comes from a stranger, since it may be an angel in disguise.

“Vanishing angel” stories were another type of supernatural encounter which Lanigan discussed during the evening.  She recalled hearing from a woman that was visited at her home by a man asking for food because he was out of work and hungry.  The generous woman invited him in, fed him, and briefly chatted with the stranger.  As he was leaving, he said “God bless you,” and then, Lanigan said, “he got halfway down her front walk and he literally vanished in front of her eyes.”  Lanigan also told the story of a man who had a heart condition and was saved by his golden retriever which had been trained to detect illness and alert 911.  What made the story particularly angelic was that, as a puppy, the dog had two white spots on its back and, as it got older, the white spots grew into the shape of “elongated wings.”

    Beautiful post. I personally love dogs ( although I don’t have one now), they seem to be so personable and loving. I think they are special companions sent from above to help us and accompany us.
