I am glad that you are following your dream, and writing. I am Thirty-five, getting on thirty-six. In 2007, I entered a writing competition because my mother had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, and we didn't have much money and I wanted the prize money because I wanted life to be easier on her. After the award, something happened. I couldn't write again. I can't explain, but I just couldn't write. I remember my mother telling me to write everyday because she believed in me. She died two years later, and I still regret not writing. Now to your story. I will try to review it as best as I can and I hope that my comments will be useful.
I had come to Colorado Springs, Colorado to live with my husband while he was stationed at
Fort Carson Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I had come to Colorado Springs to live with my husband, while he was stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado.
I got a job there on post working for the Army as a Civil
Servant, my job title was mail clerk. (How soon did you get this job after moving to Colorado Springs?)

One night when I was in my bedroom in bed that was situated off the living room and my young son
in junior high was asleep in his bedroom situated opposite the kitchen. My husband was currently in
the field at Fort Hood, Texas. So, we were alone in the house. I was laying, in bed on this particular
night waiting for sleep to take me, when all of a sudden, a bright light lit up the living room. Since my bedroom door was opened, I could see what it was. It was the most beautiful vision I had ever
seen in my life.
One night I was alone in the house with my young son aged…. (don’t really know how to fit in the Junior High here) My husband was away at Fort Hood in Texas and my son was asleep in his room opposite the kitchen. I was lying in bed waiting for sleep to overtake me, when all of a sudden, a bright light lit up the living room. My bedroom door was open and since it was located off the living room, I could see what it was. It was the most beautiful vision I had ever seen in my life.
A, elderly woman appeared in my field of sight she had white hair down to the bottom of her throat
sort of like a bob, but not quite the modern look of a bob haircut of today. She was immaculate not a hair out
of place, not a wrinkle out on her face, rosy pink cheeks, she walked with a hunched. Because she had no
wrinkles it was hard for me to guess her age. But her appearance told me she was elderly. She had an old
cane in her right hand and carried an ancient lantern in her left.
An elderly woman, with white hair down to the bottom of her throat, in a sort of bob quite unlike the modern look of a bob haircut today. She was immaculate. Not a hair out of place, rosy pink cheeks and not a wrinkle on her face; because of this, it was hard for me to guess her age. She walked with a hunch and something about her appearance told me she was elderly. In her right hand she had a cane and in her left, she carried an ancient lantern.
This lantern was ancient. I don't believe there is a lantern like it on earth today. Because I have done
some small research trying to find something similar on the internet with no luck.
I don’t believe there is a lantern quite like it on earth today, because later, I did some research on the internet, trying to find something similar, with no luck.
I believe she knew I had seen her. I had wished I had gotten up, but I was like rooted to my bed in
awe! Now her gown was the most gorgeous gown I have ever seen in my life. The first thing I thought and
said to myself was, "Oh my God, It's my fairy God Mother!" She didn't say a word to me as she crossed the
room and went out the door without opening the door, as she did this the living room became dark again. I
got up and opened the door to the outside to see if I could see her again. She had completely vanished. I
quickly locked the door and went back to bed. Instead of spoken words she left me with and overwhelming
since of peace. Sleep then overtook my body.
She must have known that I had seen her. To date, I wish I had gotten up (to do what? Approach her? Talk to her?), but I was frozen, rooted?? (Can’t really make out if the original sounds better) by awe.
Her gown, was the most gorgeous I had ever seen in my life (care to give us have an idea how it looked ??). I whispered??? (better synonym might be used) the first words that crossed my mind, “Oh my God, it’s my fairy God Mother!”
She didn’t say a word to me as she crossed the room and went out through the door without opening it (a bit confusing here. Did she walk through your bedroom? Was there a door leading outside through your bedroom? Which door was closed?)
As she did this, the living room became dark again. I got up, opened the door and looked outside to see if I could see her again. She had completely vanished. I quickly locked the door and went back to bed.
She had left me with an overwhelming sense of peace as sleep took over my body.
The next morning, I woke and thought about what had occurred last night and I wished I had gotten
out of bed and talked to her, but I didn't, a small regret there. It was not much longer that day or the
next day, I would get a phone call from Fort Hood that my husband had pasted out from heat
exhaustion while in the field. They told me that they were giving him IV's to hydrate him and that he
would be fine. I would find out from my husband on his return home on his pasting out incident that
he was near death's door.
I woke up the next morning with renewed regret. I wished I had gotten out of bed and talked to the woman. I would get a call later that day or the next, I can’t really remember, from Fort Hood, that my husband had passed out from heat exhaustion while he was in the field. They said he was being given IV’s to hydrate him, that he was going to be fine; I would later find out from my husband on his return, that he had been near death’s door.
Which makes even more sense why I had the visit from Archangel
Gabriel. So, now I know that this was the reason that I saw this vision. She was the Angel
Gabriel. The Archangel Gabriel's white light ray represents purity, harmony and holiness. This
description fits perfectly with the vision I saw.
This explained the visit from the archangel Gabriel (as I now believed the woman was). The Archangel’s white light rays represent purity, harmony and holiness. This fit perfectly with the vision I saw.
This beautiful elderly lady was dressed in a beautiful
white gown and this is why she chose to appear to me wearing white. Archangel Gabriel is the angel
of revelation. She is the same angel that told Mary in the bible she would give birth to Jesus Christ.
I have always wanted to see her again. Who would not want to see beauty like that. I considered
myself to be very blessed. I have so far in my life had four encounters with angels. Oh, I have had
encounters with demons too, but that's another story for another time.
This must have been why that beautiful elderly lady, dressed in that beautiful gown had chosen to appear to me in white. Archangel Gabriel is the angel of revelation. She is the angel who told Mary in the bible, she would give birth to Jesus Christ.
I have always wanted to see her again. Who would not want to see beauty like that. I consider myself to be very blessed. I have so far in my life had four encounters with angels… oh, I have had encounters with demons too, but that is another story, for another time although I prefer not to write about those.
One I don't really choose to write about. I am all about writing inspiring positive stories. I also want to clarify that all my encounters have been without seeing wings. I have always wondered about this too. When they
appear to you in human form, they don't necessarily show their wings, I guess. One encounter was
with Archangel Michael, I heard just his voice, he was invisible to me. That is one powerful angel
and that too is another story.
This story is based on a true story.
