THE CHANGE IN A RIDE
One summer morning Alex was delivering newspaper, he delivers newspaper part of his summer job. When he gets out of school he works as a newspaper boy. Alex was listening to music on his IPod everyday as he delivers newspaper, it helps him relax and the days for him goes by so quickly. He crosses the highway everyday he prays to God for protection he believes that God protects him. He had reached to the other side of the highway, he bumped into the mailman. As they were delivering mails in the same house.
Carmelo put the mail in the mailbox as Alex was delivering the newspaper. Carmelo looked at Alex. “Hi Alex how you’re doing?” “I’m good!” Alex replied. “I’ll see you tomorrow Carmelo.” Alex crossed the highway and he saw someone needed helped with his truck. As he was crossing the highway he prayed to God to protect him. He saw the guy was lost in the highway with his black truck. “Hi excuse me do you need any help; may I help with something?”
“Yes”! “My truck got stuck in the middle of the highway. And I’m supposed to give a talk in a church on New Hope street.”
“You’re not that far from it.” Alex was changing the tires. “So, you’re a preacher?”
“Somewhat!” “I still need a long way to go.” Was checking on his cell phone to see if he had service. Meanwhile Alex changed the tired.
“Sr. your car is ready.”
“Thank you!” You can call me Chris. Chris was approaching to his car. “Do you need a ride somewhere?” “Is cool!” I cross this highway every day. Alex smiled at him.
“No worries I’ll take you.”
Alex and Chris got into the car and drove to their destiny. Before Alex got out of the car, Chris gave him something. Alex looked at him.
“What’s this had a book in his hands.”
“Is a book about angels.” Chris smiled at him.
“Angels!” Flipped the book back and forth.
“Yes angels”. “You pray to God to protect you every day from crossing the highway right”.
“Yes!” I do! Alex open the door. “Thank you!”
As Alex was walking into his house and closed the door and he sat down on the couch feeling tired from delivering newspaper. He opened the book and he began to read it. Angels are messenger sent from heaven, they don’t have to wear white to know that there are angels. Alex reading out loud.
Alex had a flash back about the highway and he started to think about the conversation that he had in the truck. Do you believe that God send angels? “Was Chris an angel sends from heaven.” Alex closed his eyes.
