Alley Spooks

So. There's my husband walking down a dark alley last night, in a suit and tie, deceptively looking like a rich man waiting to be mugged. 

A voice in the dark says, "Where are you going?" Two men are standing in the shadows. 

The husband thinks, "Oh... this is not going to be a fair fight," but he keeps his cool.

The same voice says, "I have something for you, Pastor." 

(How does he know my husband's a pastor?  Does he glow in the dark or what??)

He reaches into his pocket and pulls something out. 

It's too dark to see what he has, but it's probably a knife, right?  That makes the story better.

My husband says, "I don't need anything." 

The guy says, "What's that on your head?"  He then says, "It's not my knuckles." ???

It was an angel, I know it was.  I've never seen one, but it must have been an angel.  Would an angel sit on a guy's head?  Or maybe it was a halo? That would explain how he knew my husband is a pastor.  ?? 

Husband says, "Well, guys, I am on my way home, and I have four little girls waiting for their daddy to tuck them in, so I've got to get going."

The man
says, "Will you shake my hand?"  "Sure."  They shake.  The man's name is Brian.  And my husband keeps walking.

So what was the point?

I don't know. 

I'm just glad to have him home safe!

The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
Psalm 34:7


  1. Wow, that's very neat!!! The question is, why was Pastor walking down a dark alley at night? lol Too bad Pastor couldn't see what that man saw.

    I was just thinking about angels the other day - twice in my life I have had car breakdowns where I needed a ride along the highway and I think very well that those that picked me up were angels too - do you know angels drive Mercedes? (Well, the first time was a Mercedes, the second time I'm not sure, some very nice car). They don't talk much, but are nicely dressed. :)

  2. When did this happen and where?


  3. I was walking down the alley in the dark because at night I switch over to Pete Falcon, the daring over comer. Remember he is able to leap over a brick wall, or at least tries to. I thought I would use some of those new martial arts moves I learned from Brandon.

  4. Well I'll have him teach you some.. His instructor says Brandon is a natural born sparrer (sp?). He is going to use him to teach some of the younger kids sparring. LOL.. His teacher seems to really be impressed with his abilities.. LOL

  5. Oh yeah, Pete Falcon should have demonstrated his wall jumping skills, that would have scared them. I wonder when the guy said he had something for Pastor, what he was intending to give him - money? a tract?

  6. Wow, that really happened? It kind of sounds like a dream or a story from the Bible! Very interesting!


  7. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog.

    This was a very interesting story. Yep - I do think it may have been an angel! I'm glad he made it home safely.
