An angelic testimony
Pat Knowles lives in Wallasey with her husband Dennis. She told me about this testimony a while ago so I asked her if she was prepared to share it for this website/booklet, which she agreed to.
I was working in Birkenhead some years ago. At lunchtime I decided to go and do some last minute Christmas shopping as it was about a week before Christmas. There was a very busy one-way street, which I had to cross to get to the shops, and I checked very carefully to my right before starting to cross, as this was the only way the traffic was supposed to come from. I was just about to step into the road when a hand grabbed me quite roughly from behind and dragged me back. I turned round quite indignantly, wondering who was manhandling me like that. It was a man in an ordinary suit, he didn't say anything, just pointed towards the left. To my horror, there was a huge lorry bearing down, just feet away, going down the one-way street the wrong way, I turned back to the man to thank him, but there was no sign of him, there was no way he could have just disappeared in the seconds it had taken me to look to the left, see the lorry and look back again. Had I stepped onto the road, the lorry would have hit me, and, would I think, have killed me stone dead, he couldn't have stopped as he was doing quite a speed, and I just wouldn't have seen him, and even if I had, it would have been too late. The only explanation I can give for this is that the man was an angel, because he just couldn't have disappeared as we were in quite a large open space, and it would have taken him ages to go out of my sight.
