Angel visit

Last night Samuel kept coughing and needing suctioning, so I would run to his side frequently. One time, instead of looking so tired and sick he looked toward the wall and smiled so big. It was a pure, content smile.  Well, I knew why he was smiling.
I'm not sure I have shared about his ”angel's” here before.
For years he has been looking toward the empty wall just smiling from ear to ear and I would wonder why? So, about a year and a half ago I read 2 books. One was ”Heaven is for Real” the other was ” The boy who came back from Heaven”. Both were wonderful and made me yearn for heaven. I also shared parts of the books with the family. Both of the boys in the books talked about angels being by there side, comforting them and encouraging them.
I decided to ask Samuel if it was his angel(s) that were making him smile and sometimes laugh. When I did, he motioned YES! He was also, so happy...he even giggled (which is Very rare)! This was over a year ago, so ever since we have known that maybe they were encouraging him or letting him in on something special!
I do believe children like Samuel know and see things that we don't have the privilege of knowing and seeing. Since they are special they get special privileges. I believe they are bringing him comfort and joy. They can hear what he cannot say and are encouraging him to Trust in our Heavenly Father.

Psalm 34:7 NASB

The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.

Thankful for our guardian angels and the joy & delight Samuel has when he sees his! :-)

We also believed Macayla had glimpses behind the veil at times. Thanks for sharing your boy with us.

It brings joy to my heart when I see Samuel gazing at his angel(s). He is a special boy and I am so thankful the Lord ministers to him in that way.
