You are out in the desert in Arizona, six miles from the nearest paved road, when all of a sudden you start feeling sick. You start sweating profusely, you lose your breakfast. You feel so weak, you can hardly tie your shoe. All this happens within about two minutes. Your friend, who came with you to watch you set up a dredge in a river bed, says he has an appointment and has to leave, but before he does he tells you that you don't look so good. You find you can hardly answer him.
You are having a cardiac arrest--a "sudden death heart attack" as it's sometimes called. Over 85% of those who have a heart attack survive. Usually, there are plenty of warnings. Only 7% of those who have a cardiac arrest survive. There are no warnings. What's the odds of surviving a cardiac arrest out in the desert of Arizona? Probably about 0%.
Is it just plain, dumb luck when unbelievable events converge to keep disaster from occurring, or is there something else that may be protecting us? In the Foreword, the author relates several of these incidents that have happened to him. Following one particular near-death episode, he was given a story to tell. That story has been an incredible story to many people and has helped them in their time of sorrow. You will never look at coincidence the same again.
When The Angels Cry-The Story of Arielle is an inspirational and heartwarming story of everyday miracles we receive, but usually never recognize.
Rebecca had a great life. She was living the dream--until early one morning it all came crashing down. S.I.D.S. had taken her son from her. She cursed God. Her depression so engulfed her, there seemed no end to her sorrow. After months of trying to get Rebecca to see a doctor, her husband left her. Later, she apologized to God and asked for His forgiveness. Her life was forever changed.
Rebecca finds Arielle on her doorstep as an infant, but possessing something so mysterious, she can’t bring herself to believe. Throughout Arielle’s youth, she maintains she has conversations with angels and is barraged with questions from religious leaders who question Rebecca’s observations, and Arielle’s angelic messages. The spiritual leaders are told they must start believing in and teaching about a loving, compassionate God.
As news of extraordinary events tied to Arielle, her prophesies, and her messages from the angels travel throughout religious hierarchies, the courts, and the community, she faces many challenges and teaches many about life, love and God. Who is this child? Will they ever believe her?
