A disabled young girl, lost for hours, reports that a 'shining lady' brought her home. An angel comes to a woman in a dream, shaking her and rousing her from a near-fatal diabetic coma. A pair of angels deliver wood to a family snowed in by a blizzard. Are angels for real? Of course they are.
George Washington was inspired and comforted by an angel who visited him as he stood by his ragged troops during a difficult winter at Valley Forge. This angel laid out for him the promise and vision of a new nation. Charles Lindbergh saw 'friendly, vapourlike shapes' who guided his voyage across the Atlantic in 1927. While praying for the safety of his son, a soldier, JRR Tolkien received 'a vision of divine light, which connected every human soul directly to God'. And George Frideric Handel, at fifty-two, with one arm paralysed, exclaimed on finishing the 'Hallelujah Chorus', 'I think I did see all Heaven open before me and the great God himself'.
