Angel saved me from a Burning House

When I was 16 years-old, our house burned to the ground leaving my parents and I homeless. There was no insurance on the house and we lost everything, escaping with just the clothes on our back. The day before this happened I walked through our old house taking in each and every room and even opened the attic hatch and looked around there as if I knew I would never see the house again.



At around 5 the next morning I awoke to the acrid smell of smoke and I called to my parents and told them to turn on their light, that there was an awful smell. When we went downstairs we saw that the pantry was engulfed in flames, I didn't know what to do so I ran upstairs and filled a glass from the bathroom tap and ran back down and threw glass and all on the fire. I guess I wasn't thinking straight. We had an old fashioned crank phone and we were on a party line so I ran to the phone and cranked it as hard and as long as I could hoping to alert the neighbors down the road. In those days there was no fire department in our little community nor could I call 911. By this time my father had got out of the house and my mother was running around screaming for help. I was in a corner beside the refrigerator and it seemed that there was no way out of the burning house.

The smoke was very thick and all at once I saw the shape of a man in the dining room window. I saw his hands outstretched and I heard him say my name and to come. I ran over and he lifted me up and out into the snow bank. Although I was in a cotton nightie, the snow felt warm under my bare feet. I could still hear my mother calling my name and running through the house. I saw my father down in the barnyard and I called to him, I'm out! I went around to the front door of the house and saw my mother starting to come out, but then she turned and started to go back in her confusion. I grabbed her and pulled her down the steps and away from the house. We were all saved from the burning inferno that night. Some neighbors arrived on the scene and took us to the hospital. This happened just after Christmas and the night before I was trying on two nighties I had received, one was the nightie I had on which was a filmy nylon one and the other was made of cotton. I decided on the nylon one. If Id had on the cotton one I know I would not have survived. I still wonder who it was that lifted me out of the window into the snow. When I looked he was gone. I believe it was my guardian angel.

"Deeper In Love"
Lyrics:-


There is a longing
Only You can fill
A raging tempest
Only You can still
My soul is thirsty Lord
To know You as Im known
Drink from the river
That flows before Your throne

Take me deeper
Deeper in love with You
Jesus hold me close in Your embrace
Take me deeper
Deeper than Ive ever been before
I just want to love You more and more
How I long to be deeper in love

Sunrise to sunrise
I will seek Your face
Drawn by the Spirit
To the promise of Your grace
My heart has found in You
A hope that will abide
Here in Your presence
Forever satisfied

Take me deeper
Deeper in love with You
Jesus hold me close in Your embrace
Take me deeper
Deeper than Ive ever been before
I just want to love You more and more
How I long to be deeper in love (2)

Take us deeper Lord.
