Thankful for angels’ blessing

Published: Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

When we least expect it, there are “angels.” Our lives are so busy that when a special blessing comes our way, we’re caught by surprise, and it can bring tears to our eyes.

On Wednesday, at Angelo’s II, a table of four young women sat just feet from my booth where I was enjoying the wonderful buffet. When a waitress came by, I told her I was ready to pay. I was stunned to find my lunch had already been paid for by the gals who sat close by.

They didn’t know me, and I didn’t know them. Those girls were truly angels that day, and as a result, I thanked Jesus (for they already had gone about 20 minutes before I finished my meal).

And now to them, and they know who they are, there is a special place in heaven reserved for you. Thank you.
