Earth Angels

Not all angels are celestial beings.
Many of them are right here on earth.

in the generosity of a mysterious stranger or a
helpful animal.

Our inspiring real-life stories of angel
sightings and angel encounters will l
eave no doubt in your mind:
God and his angels are at work
in the world today
