This sunny morning, August 3rd, I went for a three-mile jog down the street in my neighborhood. There were a few vehicles driving down the street here and there, and with a few bikers that passed by, but I saw no one else walking or jogging out this morning.
As I’m jogging my first mile, I start thinking of the angels, especially my Guardian Angel. He hadn’t been in my mind for over a week, so I invited him to join me on my jog. Actually, I invited a lot of Angels to join me as I jogged in peace and quiet, for the exception of the occasional cars passing through.
I asked my Guardian Angel to please give me a sign that he was here with me. Of course he doesn’t give me signs all the times, but I ask anyway. I kept jogging and put it out of my mind.
Then on my second mile, all of a sudden, I heard the sound of someone jogging around four feet behind me. I thought, “Where on earth did this person come from? I hadn’t seen anyone out jogging. I kept jogging and listening to the sound of the tennis shoes behind me as they pounded on the asphalt and grinded on some of the loose gravel.
I figured he/she would pass me up in a flash since I was jogging at a slow pace, but he/she didn’t. He just stayed back there behind me.
I began wondering why he/she wouldn’t pass me, and so, I jogged even slower so he could pass me up. But I noticed that when I slowed down, the sound of the steps slowed down with mine. But this time, he was jogging closer to me, like two feet right behind me. Way too close.
I thought it was a little strange that this person wasn’t passing me. I didn’t feel scared at all. Fear never entered my mind. I was just curious as to why he/she decided to jog right behind me, so at the next home’s driveway, I decide to pull in a bit to let him/her by and as I did, I turned back to see the person to say hi and let him/her by, but to my surprise, no one was there! Instead of saying hi, my mouth just dropped in disbelief.
I stopped and stood there for a minute confused and shocked as to what had just happened, but then I realized that it must have been my Guardian Angel jogging with me. I mean, I did invite him along and asked him for a sign and I got it!
I continued my jog, but the sounds of the jogger were gone. I didn’t hear them again.
Thank you for that my Guardian Angel.
