When I was a young girl, about 10 probably, my friends and I were in a small group heading out on an expedition to explore the neighborhood. We were on horses and push-bikes.
We had just begun our morning’s adventure, and were riding down a fairly steep hill. I was riding my bike just behind my friend who was on her horse, Caddy. We all were distracted because another horse, one in a paddock, was showing off to Caddy and was squealing and galloping and dancing around.
So I stopped looking ahead of me, and as I rolled down the hill on my bike, I ended up riding right up in between Caddy’s back legs.
Of course, Caddy got a big shock, and kicked back at me (double barrel) with both legs. Now Caddy was a huge horse. On my bike, my head would have been about level with his thighs.
Normally when a big strong horse double barrel kicks you at close range, you are dead or gravely injured, but I wasn’t.
Instead I was simply sitting upright cross legged on the ground right behind Caddy. My hands were just sitting in my lap and I didn’t have a scratch - and had no recollection of any time passing between feeling myself bump into Caddy, and being aware of sitting there. My bike didn’t do so well and was lying about 20 metres back up the hill in the middle of the road.
I’ve always believed it was my Guardian Angel who saved me, even though I was never actually religious (I did always believe in God and loved Him and was Baptized). And I always used to feel close to him (my GA) - not feel a ‘presence’ but just knew he was watching over me. But since I was about 20 and went off the rails a bit (a lot) I stopped feeling him around. I’m now a mature Christian because God rescued me from my sinful life when I was 30, but I still don’t feel the presence of my Guardian Angel. Why do you think that is?
Do you think I still have a Guardian Angel? Why do you think I ‘knew he was there’ and now I don’t?
