Many, many years ago on Christmas Eve I was driving home from work, late at night during a heavy snow storm. This was when our area of British Columbia, Canada, had a much smaller population so at this time of year there wasn’t a lot of traffic on the main highway – which turned out to be a blessing.
We had blizzard-like conditions this night and with the wind chill factor it was -30 F. Because of the “white-out” conditions there was slim to almost zero visibility and there were no snow plows in sight. They just couldn’t keep up – too many roads, too much snow, and not enough snowplows.
I slowly drove down the highway, but the farther down the road I went, the worse it was getting. I couldn’t even see the road any more, so I inched along watching the sides of the road as best I could. I was praying, asking for a safe journey home. My prayers were answered.
I was about ¾ of the way home when I drove over a snow-covered patch of "black ice". The car went completely out of control and started spinning around in circles – doing three complete dizzying doughnuts before I managed to stop. Luckily there was no traffic and when I stopped I fortunately was facing in the right direction that I needed to go. My heart was pounding, so I took a few deep breaths to calm myself. I knew I had to keep going – if I stayed where I was and ran out of gas, I would freeze to death – and going back was impossible. Then I looked up and there in front of me was a beautiful white Angel with a golden aura around her! She sweetly smiled at me and telepathically told me to continue and that if I followed her, she would make sure that I would arrive home safely. I nodded my head, and thanked her. Again she smiled at me and signaled for me to follow, so I did. Carefully and slowly we went down the road. I pulled off the highway onto the road that led to my house – still following the beautiful Angel. Finally I pulled into the driveway and thanked the Angel for her help. I said a prayer of thanks, being ever so grateful for my Christmas Angel who came to my aid when I needed her – a wonderful Magical Christmas Miracle. The Angel smiled and waved goodbye then she faded into the whiteness of the falling snow and was gone. Only then did I let out a sigh of relief – with her help I had made it home safe and sound.
The next day I went outside, laid down in the snow, and waved my arms and legs back and forth in the snow to make a wonderful "Snow Angel" in honor of my Christmas Angel. And of course I prayed another happy prayer of gratitude to her.
