In this book you are invited to ponder the tales of ministering spirits who by their presence provide not just succor, but the reassuring evidence of a loving God who is forever watching over us. And when you finish it’s likely you will have a new appreciation of phenomenon that heretofore you may have only sensed.

It is then that you will understand some of the mystery and beauty of the events related in these stories.
