I believe it..and this is not the first time I have heard a story about someone being rescued or aided in some way by strangers who seemed to just disappear afterwards. Happened to us once years ago when traveling the Alaska Hiway...

Angels unaware..maybe..thanks for sharing this story, James.

A friend of my dads lived in Florida, but was having to come to Alabama because her children were here. Well, they were here because her ex-husband has custody and his job transferred him here. She could not take being away from them anymore, so she was relocating to find work here.

Anyway, when she stopped to get gas the first time, she found that he wallet with all her ID and money had been stolen. She had no way of getting the gas she needed and just sat there crying.

A lady walked up to her, said she didn't have money to give her, but wanted to buy her a tank of gas. Then she said, 'Jesus said you will get to your children'. And left.

The next time she was low on gas, not knowing what she was going to do. The same thing happened. It happened three times.

When I first met her, I asked how she managed to get her from Florida? She said, "God". I said, 'oh, I understand that'. Then she said, 'No! literally it was God.'

She knows or is pretty sure she had angels bringing her along her way to Alabama.

Things happening in three is symbolic. Three is a holy number.

Oh, Y'all,

I saw her today with her sons, they are so polite and well mannered. She looked really good, what I didn't tell you is she has a very debilitating form of arthritis, and was not able to get her medications right away. She finally got to the county health clinic, they sent her to a doctor, and has taken care of that. She got a job at Olive Garden, and it is starting to work well for her. She looked really good all dressed up for work. She was beaming. I think they have made it all worth it, she gave up everything in Florida to come here.

God is amazing!
