A friend’s father once told me a story that was very hard to believe, but so are many stories. He was about my age (eight) when he told me the story. He was out playing and riding his bike when he hit something in the road and lost control of his bike. He was also going downhill so he couldn’t just stop. Suddenly a car was in the same lane he was and he thought, this is going to be very bad.
He closed his eyes and when he opened them he found himself on the other side of the street and he was back in control of his bike. From this day on, he believed that God sends angels to help us.
That is exactly what inspired the book Then Along Came an Angel. Julie Bonn Heath compiled a whole bunch of individual stories into one great and inspirational book. She broke them up into three sections:
- Heavenly Intervention
- In earthly Form
- Life Changing Direction
This book is filled with inspirational stories where God sent somone, or something to intervene and help the situation. I love reading stories like these. You hear stories like this at church and I loved reading them out of this book.
