You'll even meet angels who visit us today a learn a bit about the messages they have to convey. In this book you are invited to ponder the tales of ministering spirits who by their presence provide not just succor, but the reassuring evidence of a loving God who is forever watching over us. And when you finish it's likely you will have a new appreciation of phenomenon that heretofore you may have only sensed.
This inspirational book of angels will cause you to look back over your life and recall certain inexplicable happenings that left you puzzled or in awe. It is then that you will understand some of the mystery and beauty of the events related in these stories. Gradually your understanding will deepen, so that you, too, may hear what the poet Betty Banner has heard as "the swish of passing wings."
