Suddenly, below the star and against the tree line across the road, there was a motion – like a bird flapping its wings. It appeared as if the bird was caught in a fabric and imprinted on the fabric was the view before me. Whatever was thrashing seemed to fly up above the tree line and now is against the evening sky. Unexpectedly, it was as if a dozen sparklers had been lit causing me to ask, “Is this a meteor?” There was a tremendous burst of light resulting in a hole, window, or portal of sorts. I will describe it another way. The scene before me (sky, trees, yard, etc.) was like a piece of fabric and behind this drapery was a bright light that began burning holes in the fabric revealing a view of the other side.
Through the opening, I saw the backside of a winged creature and its wings were moving quickly. Suddenly, the wings stopped moving and then the creature spread them open like a bird drying its wings in the sun. At that moment, I realized that the winged creature was an angel.
A beautiful white light was shining in the distance, but its source was out of view. The light was similar to what you see in a morning sky only more radiant and a hundred times whiter. The angel’s wing glowed as it reflected the light. The wing was translucent and looked like it was made of glass or crystal.My thoughts, as I gazed at the light of God’s Glory and upon an angel who was present when God spoke the world into being, were not: “God is real”, “The Bible is true”, “Jesus does exist”, or “There really is a heaven”. These thoughts never entered my mind. Over the years, my Christian journey has removed all doubt about whether God is real and that Jesus is my Lord and Savior.
