The Angel and the Hitchiker In 1976 I was 20 years old and occasionally hitchiked. The most profound experience I had hitchiking was when I got a ride---from an Angel!!!
I was heading west on the interstate towards Indianapolis, Indiana and a baby blue car pulled over to give me a lift.
As soon as I reached the car and opened the door and saw the man at the wheel, I realized he was not of this world.
I got into the front seat and was overwhelmed by the pure and loving essence his being emitted. He was a tall man with blond hair and blue eyes, conservatively dressed. I asked him where he was going and he told me "on a business trip", but I knew otherwise. The sense of knowing I got was that his sole purpose on this earth at that particular moment was to divinely intervene on my behalf--perhaps to thwart my getting a ride from someone who would harm me.
He had a sublime smile that gently remained on his face, reflecting an inner peace no earthly man can possess. He was entirely made of goodness. It humbled me to be in his presence. I became speechless (unusual for me!!) and we rode in silence, with me occasionally looking out the window and then glancing over at him, as he smiled and looked straight ahead.
When he dropped me off, he bade me goodbye, and my final look into his eyes confirmed all I had suspected from the onset of the ride--that he was in actuality a real Angel, and he had divinely crossed my path for a purpose only God and he was aware of...
