Yes, There Are Still Angels In The Internet

Despite the growing cynicism of the times where people tend to be more greedy and avaricious; despite the widespread distrust of man against his fellowmen; despite the turbulent situation of the world's economy; yes, and despite the coldness of man against his fellowmen, it is heartwarming to note that, yes, there are still angels in the internet. No, it is not the winged kind with glowing halos on their head. These are faceless angels I have met in the internet in the course of my blogging activities. It just so happened that I made an innocent comment in one of the post of a Christian blogger friend from the Philippines about how the verse she posted- Proverbs 3: 5-6 ("Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths."), came to me like a sudden burst of spring shower in the desert land I was in, facing a financially gloomy Christmas. She asked for my Paypal account address. I said no, she needed the money herself because of a very recent and expensive major operation of her mother. But she insisted and I finally consented. Yesterday she deposited a generous amount to my account. It was heaven sent and what could I say but thanked the Lord for the generosity of this lady angel. I will not mention her name lest a beeline of opportunist bloggers come knocking at her door. Suffice it to say that I prayed hard for her that the Lord will return back to her a thousand fold what she gave me.

Another blogging friend from Canada who is suffering from multiple debilitating and painful diseases offered to send me a custom built cane that functions as a seat as well. I gently declined the offer, citing her own need for the medicine and treatment cost of her diseases and the exorbitant cost of shipping it from Canada. I can't believe that there are still people out there whose hearts are gold and still beating with love and tenderness for their fellowmen. May your tribe increase. Yes Virginia, there are still angels in the internet.

that was very touching, Sir Mel. Yes, I do believe in angels in the internet because they just touched my life too. two weeks ago, I posted about my daughter's knee injury and her need for surgery. the response from both bloggers and non-bloggers is overwhelming. now that the surgery is already scheduled on Monday, i sincerely hope that the Lord would give me the same opportunity to help out the way i was helped..

Hi sis Pia,
Honestly speaking, you are the angel I mentioned in my post. I will never forget the generosity you extended to me and my kids so many years ago before Christmas. It will be forever etched in my memories. The other angel I mentioned here was Sheila Wall, who despite her pain and suffering offered to send me a retractable cane that also serves as an instant chair. Of course I declined her magnificent offer. There were other blogger angels who sent me dollars through their Paypal accounts in celebration of my birthday. They are Rose Cottrill, Demci Diaz, Sheila Worthington, Clarissa Candido and Bambi Mandani. God bless you all for all the kindness and generosity you all have extended to me. I can only offer you all prayers to the Lord that you all have a blessed and bountiful lives, free from any lingering pain or sickneses. God bless you always my dear angel friend.

Hi Kimmy,
First of all, I pray for the successful operation and divine healing of your daughter. By the stripes of Jesus she is healed. Amen. I hope you are fine and in the best of health. I am not as active now in blogging as I was before. I am concentrating more on my Facebook account where I can reach more audience for the Lord. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi brother mel. Life had been busy but I'll try to blog and visit more frequently soon.. been reading your posts, just wasn't able to comment. Indeed, there are angels over the Internet. There are those who I became friends with (in the real sense of the word) even though I didn't get to meet them personally. And you are one of them. God bless.

Hi Meretrisha,
I am so honored to be counted as your friend. I am not as active now in blogging for I spend more time in Facebook where I reach a wider audience for spreading the word of God. If you are also a member of Facebook please relay your account name to me to my email address: Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
