All she wanted was to feel loved, and a special gift ensured that she did.
Hi. I'm Colleen Hughes, editor-in-chief of Angels on Earth, with a true story of an everyday angel from Nancy Davis-Grow in Woodville, Texas. Angels come to us every day as a neighbor, an unexpected rescuer, a kind stranger, or a loyal pet. Listen now to a story of just such an everyday angel.
Although Nancy was busy at work and had close friends and family, something was missing from her life. She was lonely. I just want to feel loved, she said to God. Is that so much to ask?
One day, she went to a shop across the street from where she worked at lunchtime and found a mug with a red heart and the words "I love you" written over and over in fancy cursive-- the very words she needed to hear. Feeling lighter, she went to the cashier to pay for it. The clerk checked the mug, but couldn't find a price sticker. I need a price check, he called out to the store manager.
The manager looked, then shrugged. That's the only one. I've never seen another like it. Take it-- no charge. Nancy held the mug tight to her chest. God had bluster with a sign of His love, and He gave it freely.
