It was the saddest time in my life. I was hurting and thought I [had] lived a part of my life in maybe not so great a manner. I thought it was too late and too wrong to have God in my life. I thought I could be a person that could live without Him in my life and I'd get by. Boy, was I wrong. I'll never forget the depression, the isolated feeling and overwhelming blue feeling I was experiencing. I felt I wasn't worthy to even lift my head and look up to God and say - "Forgive me Lord and help me".
Then one night just as I was falling asleep, I heard the most beautiful voice you ever heard. It was soft and feminine, yet nothing like you hear on earth. The voice said "All you have to do is ask." I heard this repeated three times. I jumped from my bed and pinched myself, I banged on the dresser and knew I was not dreaming. I knew somehow it was Mary, and I knew I had to talk to a priest. I very nervously called the nearest rectory and he met with me even though he didn't know who I was. I had an open confession right there. Wow, I can't believe I did that. But I immediately felt a sense of relief. I knew I had been forgiven, that God was not judging me, He really loved me and wanted me to be close to Him and need Him.
For the next three days I had three signs that He heard my confession, and He still loved me unconditionally. The first was the most beautiful scent of roses throughout my apartment when I got home from meeting with the priest. I didn't have a rose in the house - just a heavenly scent. It was the most beautiful aroma I've ever smelled. The second night I was falling asleep and I heard the most heavenly sound of trumpets and instruments playing. I can't tell you how different they were - like something no one could ever do on earth - harps and chords that couldn't be struck on earth. The third night was the most striking thing of all. Again I was lying in my bed, when I heard a [soft] shuffle in [my room], like a flutter. [The room] was dark, but a small light shining reflected the most largest wings! I saw the feathers the same time I heard the voice. It was so gentle and reassuring. He said he was my angel - Gabriel. He was sent to me. That's all he said, but the next thing I knew I was being nestled in the corner of his large wing. I felt my head resting there, like by his shoulder, you know what I mean? It was the safest I ever felt in my whole life. And I had the feeling that everything was going to be okay.
I improved my life, I go to church, and I love the Lord and He loves me. I wish everyone, especially those who don't know God, could experience what we have. God Bless You In Every Way.
