One night a few years ago me and my now husband were coming home from a night of pubbing. We lived in a very bad part of the city but we made due. As we approached our apartment buildings' driveway we noticed some 3 or 4 young "undesirable types" hanging about by our gate. We'd have to pass there to get in our apartment. We parked, looked at each other like, "This is it." and got out of our car. As we started up the open air stairs, looking back in nervousness, a man's voice, loud and clear goes "How are you guys, tonight?" Standing next to the gate was a very tall, 6'5 at least, muscularly built black man, dressed in dark SWAT/Military type clothing, I remember a badge type symbol on his chest. We answered back politely that everything was fine and he said "Good. I just wanted to make sure you got in ok." We thanked him, went inside our house and closed the door. It then immediately dawned on us to ask "WTF?" First of all, our complex did not have security guards. My man was Maintainance Supervisor so he'd know if a tennant was PTing watch. None such person resided there. The young punks were nowhere to be seen, and neither as the "guard" as we looked out the windows.

In my heart of hearts, I believe this was an angel or some divine spirit sent to clear our way that night. Who knows what would have went down but when the "guard" spoke, all our fears, worry just vanished. This event is one the most significant happenings in my life.

*sorry, always "thought" they were white...

Yes, I hear they are tall too...always think they are white but I'm excited if they are human like as you describe because I may have seen one too :)

He was very tall...amazing!

Thanks for sharing x

I've heard stories much like yours, where many times the angels were extremely tall. It seems that your guardian angel was doing a great job of protecting you. An amazing story!

Angels can appear like that. It is biblical also.
