Hello, angel friends. As we begin Advent, think for a moment of what Christmas might be like if there are no angels taking part in any of the joy! Visions, songs, prophecy, all occur when angels speak . Their roles are truly important,

–I have been telling little stories about actress Loretta Young to the friends I have on Facebook. If you would like to read any of them, just check my page on Facebook. The point of this is that Loretta’s 100th birthday will be next month and cable TV as well as TNT will be carrying several of her movies. I wrote her biography in 2000 and the Hollywood Museum is arranging a display of the letters we exchanged. A lovely lady. And here is today’s story:
Bernice Wade lives on the island of Newfoundland, off the coast of eastern Canada. In early August she, her husband Gordon, and their two teenaged children decided to drive to Toronto, Ontario. They took an overnight ferry to North Sydney, Nova Scotia, and set out on the drive about 4:40 a.m.
Bernice was driving, and it wasn’t long before the rest of her family fell asleep. “I drove on and witnessed the day breaking,” Bernice says. “It was going to be a hot, bright, sunny August day and I looked forward to covering most of the 1,000 kilometers that day.” Bernice drove about another 45 minutes…and then slowly slipped into sleep.
“The next thing I remember was waking up and feeling both my arms vibrating and tingling, as if I had gotten a very strong electric shock,” Bernice says. “I realized instantly that I had fallen asleep but was at a loss to explain what had awakened me. All I know is that it wasn’t anything earthbound or a normal everyday occurrence. It could only be Heaven-sent.
“ I believe it had to be my Guardian Angel who saved me from having a terrible accident that morning,” she says. “He must have grabbed both my wrists and squeezed really hard to awaken me, while steering me out of danger. I was traveling very fast at the time. My arms tingled for at least half an hour afterwards.”
Why didn’t Bernice drive off the road, or hit another car? She says she is much more aware of guardian angels now, and will never be able to thank heaven for saving the entire family—from injury or even death.
Yes, angels must certainly be on the road, even when we’re not aware of it at all. But drive carefully anyway. They have enough to do!
