A FRIEND IN NEED

I am always amazed by the stories I run into that describe the unexpected appearances of the Unexpected. Over the past few years, I shared some of these accounts that happen in all kinds of places including winter blizzards. Right now we are preparing for a “whopper” starting tomorrow and dumping maybe as much as two feet of snow. That makes this a good time to remember what is possible when the cold winds blow in.

Jacinta Williams of Stuart, Florida has just such a story for us.

When an unexpected seizure hit her, Jacinta was terrified. With no history of epilepsy or any similar disorder, she was diagnosed with having a reaction to a prescription. However, while working on her job as a hair stylist, another attack knocked her on the floor still holding a bottle of hair color in her hand. Blackness swallowed her. Only slowly did she begin to return to consciousness.

Jacinta could hear muffled voices flowing around her. While she was struggling to regain full awareness she could hear more voices above her. Slowly, she began to realize that someone was holding her hand. When Jacinta opened her eyes, she saw a beautiful, smiling woman with long blonde hair and sparkling eyes. Jacinta guessed the woman must be around thirty-years-old.

As the woman looked into Jacinta’s eyes, she didn’t say a word. And yet — Jacinta clearly heard her say, “Do not be afraid. Soon you will be well.”

An ambulance arrived and the paramedics started preparing her for the ride to the hospital. She looked at them and her co-workers. “Where’s the beautiful lady who held my hand.” They shook their heads, not sure of what she was talking about. No one seemed to remember such a woman being there.

Once she was in the hospital and examined, the doctors assured her that the medication hadn’t left her system yet. Just as she had heard, Jacinta was okay. Now fully recovered, she realized what had happened in her shop. The voice was lovely beyond words and the assurance had come like a warm blanket in a cold winter. The beautiful woman was no woman at all. Jacinta had met her guardian angel.

Years later, she never had another seizure and remains a complete believer. Jacinta will tell you that angels are there all the time. Pay attention!

A SURPRISE AT A TRUCK STOP

MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!

A SURPRISE AT A TRUCK STOP

Archbishop Michael Owen has been my dearest friend for a thousand years. We eat lunch together every Tuesday and have been doing so for over twenty years. Last week we were sharing stories from our past and he began relating his experience with Junior Neece.

Junior had a deep and unique love and concern for the poor. Having grown up under difficult circumstances, he knew how hard poverty can be. In the 70’s even though he could neither read nor write, Junior went off to a southern university to play football. Because he was unusually big and strong, they weren’t worried about something as unimportant as going to class or passing a test. So, Junior rocked along knocking people out of his way on the gridiron.

Rev. Michael knew about Junior’s work with the poor and invited him to speak in a church he was pastoring. The effect was electric as Junior’s message was so powerful and personal that people were moved to be more generous than usual. Mike wondered where this capacity had come from. Junior told him this story.

He stopped at a filling station to fill up for the long trip to Alabama. Junior figured that ought to take him maybe to Memphis, Tennessee. A deshelled looking old man walked up and ask if he could catch a ride south. At first, Junior was hesitant. Hitchhikers weren’t particularly safe, but something nudged him to give the man a ride.

“Sure,” Junior said. “Get in my pickup.”

As they rode down the highway. The old man began to ask questions. “Did you ever tell your wife and boys about your struggles growing up?”

Junior stared. How could this guy know he was married and had children?

The old man kept pressing. “You’ve had lots of painful experiences, haven’t you?”

Junior could feel his words cutting into him. The man began describing in detail some of Junior’s hardest moments. Tears started running down his face. He coughed and sputtered. This old man had touched the deepest places in his life, places he had tried to avoid. Junior began to feel the love of God shinning into his heart and moving him deeply. His road trip had turned into an epiphany.

Finally, the gas gauge indicated a need to fill up. Wiping the tears from his eyes, he pulled into a gas station and got out. “I’ll be right back,” he told the old man. He hung up the gas pump and got back in the truck. The old man had disappeared.

Long ago, the Apostle Paul told us to pay attention because some of have been visited by angles unaware. Such a visit forever changed Junior Neece’s life. By the way, Junior learned to read and write through studying the Bible.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!
