The angel at the airport

I love the beautiful reality of “angels,” which I have discerned at many times in my life, including in a time of urgent need. To me, angels are messages from God. In fact, the Greek word aggelos, or angelos, means messenger. They arrive like trustworthy friends, not in a narrowly defined visible form, but as quiet, yet clear, intuitions.     

Angel thoughts are abundant, and they are substantial, effective helpers. Part of the spiritual definition of angels given in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy is “God’s thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect” (p. 581). (See also the article “Angels” by Mrs. Eddy, Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, pp. 306–307.) Here’s how one came to my aid.  

It had been a nice trip to California in the spring of last year. My wife and her father had attended a Christian Science students’ association meeting, which is an annual meeting of pupils who have had instruction in Christian Science with the same teacher, and I had explored a redwood forest that day. Afterward, we had time to enjoy some breathtaking scenery together. Besides enjoying each other’s company, what we all had in common was a love for God and for the teachings of the Bible as illuminated by Christian Science.
