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.
