Angels Among Us - Angelic Help Can Sometimes Come In The Strangest Way

Do you believe in Angels or is it just coincidence?

Sometimes strange things happen that make you sit back and think, 'What the heck was that?'

Or how did that happen?

We go about our daily lives believing that what we see around us is all there is. Our minds take in the everyday sights and sounds and make us believe that the earth that we live on is easy to understand. And so we take it for granted that things are what they are.

But sometimes, when Angels step into our lives it makes us stand back, take a huge intake of breath and say, 'Well I never...'!

How do we know they are Angels? And what exactly are they?

Here's a couple of stories with strange encounters, I will leave them for you too decide. Angels, coincidence or Divine intervention?

And remember, Angels have a sense of humor too!

London Taxi at Night

London Taxi at Night

The Mysterious Taxicab

A few years ago me and a friend decided to go clubbing in the town a few miles from where we live. We hadn't been out for quite a while so we thought we would make it a real night of fun.

After a few hours I noticed that my friend was getting more and more inebriated and started to make plans for getting home. Suddenly she tottered over to me on her very high heels and said that she was going to get a lift with three guys.

So I said no, but she insisted, and against my better judgment I decided it was best to stick together. We would normally have got a taxi, but for some reason I thought, no, it will be fine.

When we got in the car I realised that I had made a huge mistake. I needed to get home. But by this time I decided to trust the guys to take us back to our town.

But no. They thought it would be fun to drive straight to their house! My stomach sank, what do I do now?

When we got out of the car I yelled to my friend who was already going into the house, 'I am going home, you can stay here for as long as you like, and good luck!!'

Turning away in disgust I started to walk. Then I realised that it was 3 am, there was nobody about and the road was long and dark.

I looked around, nobody. Hell, I thought, what do I do? This has got the word 'attack' written all over it. A woman on her own in a rough town at 3 am!

Looking towards the sky, I sent up a silent prayer. 'Help me!' I asked.

I started to walk on, only to hear the sound of a car behind me. Turning round, there in the middle of the road coming my way was a London Taxi! I don't live in London! I thought, 'What the heck is that doing here?'

I slowed up when he saw me, so I waved and he pulled over. 'Can you take me back to my town?' I asked.

Scroll to Continue

He replied 'Nah love, this is a private taxi, but I will take you back to the taxi rank so you can get another one, and its free, okay? because I can't charge you!'

So there I was. In a safe black cab at 3 am with a jolly Londoner chatting away. He dropped me off and I got safely home.

After I got home I sent up a silent thank you God.

You have to remember, this was 3 am in the morning, nobody was around, and no cars on the streets. People were asleep. Coincidence? No, definitely not.

Angels don't only help people in danger.....

Most people believe that Angels or Supernatural occurrences usually appear when you are in danger. But that's not necessarily so. There are all sorts of pain.

Whether it be physical or mental sometimes our call for help will be answered by something or someone that would totally shock us, and even make us smile!

Take my second story.........!

The little frog was an angel!

The little frog was an angel!

Angel Frog!

Yep you read it right! This was a very strange 'Angel' or call it what you will. I live upstairs, two flights up, in something called a Maisonette. A house on top of a Flat.

Someone lives downstairs on one level, I have upstairs and downstairs and a neighbor about two feet from my front door. To get in the block, you have to open it with a key climb two lots of stairs then reach my front door. Yes there is a point.

We had a really awful neighbor, in a nutshell she was mad as a bag of spanners. She used to listen at my front door, ruin my bike just outside the door by letting down the tyres and so on.

It got worse, but without going into detail I was beyond angry. But didn't know what to do. I got more and more stressed. She started spreading rumors about me being a witch, yep, you read that right too!

That was because she knew I was into paganism, so she wasn't too far wrong, but she got worse and worse with her stories. One time my son was in the Sea Cadets and was away for a few days, hubby was fishing, and I was swimming.

Next second policemen arrived at the swimming pool, Sea Cadet hub, and fishing spot, wanting to check our alibi.

What for? Well she had rung the police to report we were trying to kill her! She had barricaded her front door! As I said, mad as a bag of spanners!

The police found it quite amusing, let us go home and virtually told her off for wasting police time, But time after time she caused us trouble, broke our stuff outside the door, and called the police. I was so mad, but felt totally helpless as I didn't want to be nasty to her. She was obviously mentally ill.

I sat there one day and looked to the sky. 'Please help' I whispered.

Angels do have a sense of Humor!

I asked for help, but never expected this!

One day I heard a scream from the stairwell outside my front door. Running to the door and flinging it open I saw 'Jill' standing near her doorway with a look of horror on her face!

I asked her what was wrong, while secretly thinking, Ha! She pointed to my front doormat.

There on the mat was a green little fella! It was a cute frog! How the hell.....?

Quick thinking made me realise that this was my chance. Stooping down I picked up the frog and said 'I asked for help, but never expected you, do come in!' LOL!

The look on her face was the best! She screamed 'Witch' ran indoors and slammed the front door.

Two days later she moved!

How the little fella got outside my front door is still beyond me, it had to open a security door, hop up two flights of steps then sit on my mat waiting for me to open the door. No way would Jill have put it there, she was terrified of all thinks creepy crawly, and frogs came into that category!

Angels sent to help us in need

Angels sent to help us in need

The Lady Who Sees Angels!

So there you go. Angels do not have to be in human form. They don't even have to help you when you are in dire need. Sometimes they have a great sense of humor too!

As for my neighbor, she was quietly moved to a care home after trying to mow the lawn with a vacuum cleaner! And yes that's true, no, not lying! Sometimes you just can't make it up!

Hi Anne! nice to see you! yes fine thanks, touch wood! lol! how you doing?

Anne from United Kingdom on April 16, 2016:

Hi Nell.

Another wonderful hub.

You might remember my sign of an Angels visit hub when a white feather was left in my path the day after a much loved Auntie died., but I have not yet written about the smile from a stranger I have never forgotten in almost 40 years, or chatting with an elderly lady which left me feeling completely serene when I was going through a bad time. I don´t remember the face of the smiling man, or anything about the conversation with the elderly lady, except that both events were so profound that they have remained in my memory for so long and I still wonder to this day if in fact I had been in the company of Angles.

Hope you are keeping well my dear.

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 08, 2015:

Hi Stella, lol! thanks so much for reading, nell

stella vadakin from 3460NW 50 St Bell, Fl32619 on April 08, 2015:

Great story and you must have gotten my old neighbor when I lived in the city. I love the country. I haven't mowed the grass with the vac yet. Stellla

Nell Rose (author) from England on March 12, 2015:

Hi Ann, thanks so much for reading, this is a bit tongue in cheek, strange things etc, but they were strange! lol!

Ann Carr from SW England on March 12, 2015:

Fascinating hub, Nell. I do think that some things happen specifically to help us, so I suppose it could be angels; no reason why not. Some coincidences work like that - people in the right place at the right time, etc.

Funny and amazing. Great read.


Nell Rose (author) from England on March 04, 2015:

Thanks Kristen, yes I do believe they appear when we need them, its amazing sometimes, thanks for reading, nell

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on March 03, 2015:

Nell, what a beautiful story about angels coming to our aids at times of need. I do believe that angels are amongst us in shapes, forms and sizes. Voted up!

Nell Rose (author) from England on February 18, 2015:

Hi colorfulone, thanks so much for reading, lol! yes that frog.....!

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on February 18, 2015:

Interesting story with a frog, Nell. I love frogs.

And, I do believe in Angels. I've been convinced.

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 31, 2015:

Hi Laurie, thanks so much, yes thinks do happen that are strange and that we don't seem to be able to understand, but know something very amazing has happened, have a wonderful day, nell

Rayne123 on January 31, 2015:

Hi Nell how are you

This is an amazing hub as usual. I believe every story in here. I can't see that anyone would have a doubt at this point in this world.

If we believe that there is evil in the world and that bad things are now happening in the world than why would we not believe the opposite. There are way too many accounts of these stories for them not to be real.

I think long ago and even now, a lot of people are somewhat frightened to say the truth for fear of someone else thinking they may be a bit crazy, however I believe that somewhere in everyone's mind there is an experience that has touched their lives without any explanation.

That last story of the guy under the truck, wow, amazing, loved it.

I myself had an uplifting experience with the "Spirit World", as I wrote in my hub.

Thank you for another wonderful hub

Many blessings


Nell Rose (author) from England on January 20, 2015:

Thanks Deb, lol! maybe i chose the wrong picture, but I couldn't find a photo of a frog wearing a bowler hat and carrying a walking stick! Haha! thanks for making me laugh!

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on January 20, 2015:

The last couple of sentences made me laugh. And I'll take that frog. I have NO clue how he got to your place. That's a Yank frog!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 19, 2015:

Thanks Genna, yes that frog was the weirdest thing! lol! thanks for reading, nell

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on January 19, 2015:

I do believe in Angels. I have also often thought that the good Lord takes pity once in a while; some call it, “luck,” but I think there is far more afoot in these situations. Nell, you were blessed that early morning. What were the odds that a London Taxi would show up and that very time and place? ? And the story about the Angel Frog…and that Twinkie of a neighbor who sounded as though she had strayed from her meds for much too long. Bless that little amphibian fella…and the powers that sent him to your door. I so enjoyed this hub, Nell. Thank you!

Joanna Chandler from On Planet Earth on January 12, 2015:

Hey no problem Nellrose ha ha ha your right

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 12, 2015:

HI Jo, yes she was drunk, lol! yes frogs can be huge, but this was a little diddy one! Haha! yes some stories are so bizarre aren't they? amazing though, thanks again, nell

Joanna Chandler from On Planet Earth on January 12, 2015:

Hi Melanie :) Happy New year to you and all the best . May God guide and protect you , give you health and strength throughout 2015 and many more years to come.

I am happy that Cab came for you , because in this wicked world we live in some rapist might have passed by :( What became of your friend she had to be drunk or high off of some substance to go into that house with those three men. I am sure they......

Eww i don't like frogs by my uncle have some huge ones that sit in-front of the door by night as though they are guards to to house. Well I'd say your crazy lol.... I do not know about the witch part i started chuckling before i even reached anywhere in your hub, because its like i knew some crazy stuff was coming up.

That story about Bruce was just incredible and very mysterious and i believe baffling to the doctors. Most doctors do not believe in supernatural healing etc. they devoted their lives to Science & medicine, not God!

No wonder they are no use to themselves when they are dying! Sorry to say but i don't like swell headed people, is the same God who blessed them with the knowledge they should not be so proud and puffed up.

Thanks for sharing

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 12, 2015:

Hi Sparkster, yes that's it exactly! it seems strange to read about, but when you are there at 3am in the dark and lonely, that call for help totally blew me away! thanks so much for reading, nell

Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on January 11, 2015:

Great hub, very interesting indeed. It's amazing how certain small events like this can make such a big difference, as though they must have been controlled somehow, yet they fit into the context of our lives - nobody else is able to realize or perceive just how profound these experiences are when all we did was ask for a little help.

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 11, 2015:

Thanks Romanian, glad you liked it, and yes I totally believe!

Nicu from Oradea, Romania on January 11, 2015:

Beautiful stories, I enjoy reading them, angels exists.

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 10, 2015:

Hi Cris, Happy New Year! and thanks!

CrisSp from Sky Is The Limit Adventure on January 09, 2015:

Yes Nell, I do believe in angels in any forms. :) Love your fascinating stories.

Happy New Year!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 07, 2015:

Thanks Martie, yes something is definitely going on in the world of the supernatural, but we really don't know exactly what, but its amazing! thanks so much for reading, nell

Martie Coetser from South Africa on January 07, 2015:

Oh, Nell, I have so many stories in this category. Though I believe angels are spirits able to use the bodies and minds of humans. Although the video you have in here exposes them as independent beings. Amazing!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 07, 2015:

Hi Vellur, thanks so much for reading, yes strange things do happen, and at least one of them made me laugh, lol!

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on January 06, 2015:

Angels come in all forms and glad that you are safe and that annoying neighbor stopped troubling you is strange ways. I guess your guardian sent the cab and the frog. Yes angels are there taking care of all of us. It is simply amazing!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 06, 2015:

Hi Jo, thanks so much, yes sometimes strange things happen that make me say, what?! lol!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 06, 2015:

Hi agusfanani, thanks so much for reading, and great to see you!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 06, 2015:

Hi Alicia,thanks for reading, I use the word Angel quite lightly I think because who knows who sent them, but the taxi driver was really quite strange at the time, thanks, nell

Jo Alexis-Hagues from Lincolnshire, U.K on January 06, 2015:

How could anyone not believe in angels after reading this delightful hub? :) I had a few experiences of my own that caused me to believe that there is so much more to life than we could ever know. Loved this.

agusfanani from Indonesia on January 06, 2015:

You've shared very interesting stories about unbelievable moments. Angels do still exist with their various physical appearances.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on January 05, 2015:

This is a very interesting hub, Nell. I certainly believe that strange things happen that are inexplicable according to our present knowledge. I've experienced some myself! Personally, I wouldn't attribute unusual occurrences to angels, although I guess it depends on what a person means by the term "angel". The idea is certainly interesting, though!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 05, 2015:

Hi Kiss, thanks for your great comment, I didn't know all of this, interesting stuff thank you.

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 05, 2015:

Hi Jodah, yes that frog still makes me smile to this day! and oh that neighbor! Phew! lol!

Hi MsDora, yes I totally agree with you, help comes in all shapes and sizes, thanks so much, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 05, 2015:

Hi Marcy, I totally agree with you, something strange happens and it makes me look up and say thank you, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 05, 2015:

Hi Audrey, I call them Angels, but of course like everybody else we will never be sure exactly what supernatural thing occurred, thanks so much for reading, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 05, 2015:

Hi bravewarrior, lol! yep, that did it! it was the weirdest thing, two flights of stairs and a locked door! he was sitting there staring up at me as if to say, well open the darn door then!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 05, 2015:

Hi kitty, great to see you! yes! she did! LOL! and that would be awesome to meet up! can't wait! thanks so much, nell

Hi mary, lol! not sure if the frog was an angel, but sometimes I think 'something' sends us help in strange ways, thanks as always, nell

Kiss andTales on January 05, 2015:

Excuse my error this reply was put in another hub. But now it is correct.

Very interesting subject. And one I am happy to reply on. Thank you for your hub of this important subject.

The history of the creation of angels started with the word John1:1 he was God's first angelic son as in the beginning also known as prince, known as micheal. There are other angelic sons of creations .there was a time when they all worked with the Heavenly Father they all praised him togather, yet there were some that turned bad or evil willfully wanting to be worshiped.

Reference Bible Job 38:7 When the morning stars joyfully cried out together, And all the sons of God began shouting in applause? (38:7aA Hebrew idiom that refers to angelic sons of God.)

“‘I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear witness to you about these things for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David and the bright morning star.’”

So Angels are still busy doing important work of God.

Notice how much today and in what situation.

Reference Bible Re 3:14 “And to the angel of the congregation in La·o·di·ceʹa write: These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God,

Reference Bible Re 3:1 “And to the angel of the congregation in Sarʹdis write: These are the things that he says who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars, ‘I know your deeds, that you have the name that you are alive, but you are dead.

Reference Bible Re 3:14 “And to the angel of the congregation in La·o·di·ceʹa write: These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God,

Notice these angels are involved with the preaching work of what makes up members of Jesus Sheerp .

Reference Bible Joh 10:16 “And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; those also I must bring, and they will listen to my voice, and they will become one flock, one shepherd.

Reference Bible Lu 2:10 But the angel said to them: “Have no fear, for, look! I am declaring to YOU good news of a great joy that all the people will have,

The Good news ! Have some one been to your door with good news about God's Kingdom

Govern by Jesus!

Jesus sent his messengers ! The angels have come ! Did you envite their fellow workers ?

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on January 05, 2015:

Very interesting hub Nell. Gotta love that frog :)

I believe there are angels watching out for us bout they are often in the most unlikely form. Voted up.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 05, 2015:

Nell, I believe with you in angels. They come in whatever form they're needed. You've had some great experiences.

Mary Craig from New York on January 05, 2015:

I believe in angels and your stories are further confirmation. My dear you have such interesting stories to tell about your own life ..... You take the ball and run with it and WE WIN.

Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

Marcy Goodfleisch from Planet Earth on January 05, 2015:

Nell, you're so right about angels being all around us. I agree. The kind acts of others are Heavenly Father's way of serving us and caring for us.

Audrey Howitt from California on January 05, 2015:

I am not sure that I believe in angels, but I don't believe in coincidence either! Happy New year Nell!!

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on January 05, 2015:

Nell, I love stories about angels coming to the rescue. Your accounts are amazing. Especially the frog! There's no way he could have ended up on your stoop all by himself. I'll bet that convinced your lawn-vacuuming neighbor that you really are a witch! Too funny.

Kitty Fields from Summerland on January 05, 2015:

She probably thought the frog was your familiar! LOL! That is awesome, Nell! Just proves help comes when you ask for it. :) Awesome stories...and once again, we share so much in common. One day when I visit your side of the ocean we need to have a chat!

FlourishAnyway from USA on January 05, 2015:

An angel frog. Great story, Nell!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on January 05, 2015:

Great hub and a very interesting read!

I want to believe and I do believe that there are 'Angels'. Its gives a wonderful feeling to think that someone cares for me!

Enjoyed going through your interesting story! Voted up!

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on January 05, 2015:

A beautifully thought of hub. Your told this story with such great intentions.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on January 04, 2015:

luck.. was on your side that night..hey how did your friend make out.. was she safe too? good hub my friend

Dianna Mendez on January 04, 2015:

What a fascinating story, Nell. I am so glad that you were rescued by an angel. I hate to think of what might have happened otherwise! I enjoyed the video posted -- it was a miracle from above! Prayer does work to bring us what we need.

Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on January 04, 2015:

Hi Nell Rose,

I believe in Angels from my own experience. And, I do believe they come to bring comfort to ones in pain.

Not everything in life can be explained nor, can the human eye see every presences that is around us.

Great hub and thanks for sharing. I will share with Twitter and put on my repin board.

Bobbi Purvis

Mary Hyatt from Florida on January 04, 2015:

I've always believed that Angels come and visit us when we need them the most, but a frog?? Oh, well, I suppose it could have been.....

Very entertaining Hub; voted up, etc. and shared.

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 04, 2015:

Hi Billy, LOL! yes believe it or not its true! I knew she was strange when I moved in here,! thanks as always, and you always make me laugh!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 04, 2015:

Hi janshares, thanks so much for reading, the supernatural and all its glorious and funny ways are amazing aren't they?

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 04, 2015:

Hi Phyllis, yes that video was awesome wasn't it? how amazing! I totally believe that animals are either Angels or are sent by them to help, it was funny, amazing and wonderful too.

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 04, 2015:

Hi Ruby, lol! yes that frog totally surprised me! two flights of stairs, a locked downstairs door, and nowhere near any ponds or rivers! he was sitting there waiting patiently, then looked up at me when I opened the door. He never ran or jumped just waited for me to pick him up! I took him inside, waited for Jill to go back indoors, screaming by this time, then gently took him outside where he hopped off! LOL!

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 04, 2015:

Hi ps, thanks so much, yes supernatural happenings come in different packages, and that frog was the most amazing and funny! thanks for reading, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 04, 2015:

Hi savvy, lol! yes it was a complete surprise to see that London cabby in my little town! it was pretty eerie too, with the obligatory fog and the car coming up the road in the dark! luckily it was the good guy, or should I say angel?

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 04, 2015:

Mowing the lawn with a vacuum cleaner? I don't know how any writer could ever have writer's block. Life is just too fascinating. LOL Thanks, Nell. Great article.

Janis Leslie Evans from Washington, DC on January 04, 2015:

I do believe, I do, I do, I do believe! Angels come in all forms, Nell Rose. I've had my share of the inexplicably and know it wasn't a coincidence. Thanks for this hub, voted up, funny, and awesome.

Phyllis Doyle Burns from High desert of Nevada. on January 04, 2015:

Yep !!! that video did just blow my mind, Nell. It is a miracle that guy trapped under the truck not only survived, but the body organs he lost had regenerated! Miracle - no other way to explain it. I believe it was Angels that came to help him when under the truck, and another Angel who came to his hospital room.

And the frog - well, that too is an Angel, with a sense of humour. How timely was that? LOL

I have had Angel encounters many times over my life, so I believe it is Divine Help.

Great hub, Nell, I enjoyed reading. Voted up, across and shared.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on January 04, 2015:

Nell, I was laughing so hard when I finished reading this , then I watched the video. It made me realize that God works in mysterious ways, and I'm a believer. Your story about the little frog is what I was cracking up about. It is soo funny. ( You can't make that up. ) and mowing the grass with the vacuum cleaner topped it off. lol. Loved this...

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on January 04, 2015:

They are real...I have written about them a number of times here on HubPages and also send Angels along as my closing to a hub.

I have NO doubt they are among us both divine and of the human kind. WE feel their presence daily.

Thank for sharing Nell.

Angels are winging their way to you at this moment. ps

savvydating on January 04, 2015:

I believe. I believe. I love angel stories, and your first hand accounts are fascinating. Imagine an "angel" frog. That's so cute, funny and charming. And a London Cab? An American cab would have been sufficient to get the supernatural point across, but you got a little something extra. A Bristish cab for a Bristish woman. How delightfully personalized. Angels are indeed watching over you, Nell Rose. Up & awesome.
