The Meeting

Just a chat

It had been a long day as I walked home I was tired. so I stopped for a rest along the way. I was lonely and fed up too yes I know I have a family and a husband true. That doesn’t always make things right you know, to the outside things may look perfect but that isn’t always so.

As I sat there I had a chat with God as I often had before, now don’t go telling people that or they will say I am off the loop or more!  I sat there telling him my fears when suddenly a really pleasant man appeared. “May I sit here ” He asked “you look troubled can I help?”

There was something special about this guy he had such kind eyes and gentle smile he put me at my ease, he just did I can’t say why. He asked me what was troubling me and why I looked so sad. It was so strange because immediately I was telling him openly of all the troubles I felt I had.

I don’t know how he did it but he put me at my ease and let talk for hours , he listened to me and he did not chide or tease. There was no anger or irritation in his voice or eyes. He seemed happy to listen and was not embarrassed when tears fell from my eyes. He didn’t say much but his presence was such a comfort he made me feel alive he was so kind and not in a rush it seemed he had made me thrive.

As we sat there and the world went by I felt a peace return to me, he made me feel myself again he made me want to try. The things that were weighing me down and making me feel so small were really not insurmountable, he made me feel as if nothing was too difficult at all.

Eventually I noticed the time I said I really aught to go he said he would walk with me as his path was the same as mine. I felt so safe in his company , like I never had before he made the walk seem effortless as he saw me to my door. I turned to ask him in for a cup of tea but he was gone and no one was standing next to me.

Strange, yes it was but I remembered all he had said and the gentle feeling of his being remained inside my head. I hope we meet again one day for I shall never forget the feeling of his kindness and his touch the day we met.

    Makes you wonder just who, or what he was. I think you have a guardian angel watching over you. 🙂

      God is always there to chat to us, we just have to open our eyes and minds, the stranger was either God or a guardian angel, I am not over religious but I do believe in God, in whatever guise!

    Umm, willowdot, do you remember the instruction in the Old Testament to show hospitablity to strangers, for by so doing you entertained angels unaware! Just could not help thinking about this as I read where the man just “disappeared” after seeing you to your door! You are so very blessed, you do know that!

      I do know the passage of which you speak, everyone thinks he is an angel I rather hoped he was God himself ..but hey I may just have delusions of grandeur! 😉 xxx
