Alamo, Tennessee– I lost my grandmother in September of last year to Alzheimer’s disease. Those of you who know me well know that other than my mother, my grandmother was the most influential person in my life. It absolutely killed me when she passed and it still bothers me to this day.
Other than my sister, my grandmother literally helped my mother take care of me, especially when I was sick and my mother had to work. She was at every doctor visit and even stayed with my mother and I all the times I was in the hospital having surgery.
She taught me things that I still rely on today. Probably the biggest lesson she’s ever taught me was to reach for the stars and never give up on my dreams.
Long story short, we had a very close relationship.
On our second to last day in Daytona, my mother, sister and nephews went on a sunset cruise. I couldn’t go because it wasn’t handicapped accessible so there was no way of getting my wheelchair, even my manual one on the boat.
So I ended up staying at the condo which didn’t bother me any because that meant more time out by the pool looking at the ocean.
While I was out there, I kept looking at the clouds for whatever reason and I spotted six clouds within an hour that were in the shape of angels. I like to call them angel clouds.
Now, I’ve seen “angel clouds” before and each time it caught my attention. But there was something about seeing them at the beach that made me go “woah!”
I’d already been thinking a lot about my friend from Daytona that got killed on his motorcycle five years ago and now after seeing those clouds, it made me start thinking about my grandmother.
Each cloud was different in size and shape but all of them were shaped as an angel.
As I was looking at them, I couldn’t get Psalm 91:11 out of my head.
“For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (NIV).
I have no doubt in my mind that it was a sign from God letting us know that He was with us and protecting us. He was watching over my mother, sister and nephews while they were on that sunset cruise.
I also believe that it was my grandmother visiting us in the form of clouds. It’s been rough on all of us since her passing so I believe it was her telling us not to worry and that she’s with Jesus. She’s watching over us and protecting us as well.
While I do miss my grandmother very much, it brings me peace in knowing that she is in heaven with Jesus and that she’s always watching over us.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that has seen “angel clouds” before. I’m also sure that just because we see one, it doesn’t mean that something bad is happening or about to happen. It could just mean, like in my case, that your guardian Angel is visiting you to let you know that everything is okay and not to worry.
That’s my view from the chair!
