I, personally, have never had the pleasure of having an experience sent from God but, the people that have shared their stories in Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters complied by James Stewart Bell have had some amazing and wonderful experiences. I spent most of my time reading this book through teary eyes. It is such a touching book full of heart-warming memories.
The very first story in the book is one I will never forget. Tamara L. Stagg recounts the time when her son, Derek, would visit his grandfather in the hospital before his death. Stagg would tell her son to say good bye to his grandfather before leaving at night but, Derek refused. Instead he would tell him that he loved him and said, “I’ll say good-bye when he leaves.” This went on for days and every time he would say that he loved his “pawpaw” but, never good bye. The day finally came when his grandfather passed and while his family was standing there Derek said happily “Bye, Pawpaw” while staring at the ceiling. He later explained that his pawpaw was on the ceiling, wearing a white robe, a lot younger and with hands lifting him up.
This is just a summary of one of the joy-filled stories in this book. People think they might need to know and see everything but, sometimes, it the things that we don’t know all the details of that make the difference. This inspiring book is filled with the unknown, strangers that just seem to come from nowhere and then disappear as fast as the came, and the seemingly impossible. It truly renews my faith in God and people all at the same time. God makes the impossible, possible and you will feel it after reading this book.
