Yesterday I was at Costco. I was standing by the flowers looking at the tulips. A voice with a German accent came out of nowhere, “the carnations will last longer”.
I looked up and there was an elderly woman in a scooter. She stood up on her scooter to talk to me. We spoke for about 20 minutes in the aisle of Costco about her life in Germany, her family, and how much she loves her pottery class on Saturdays at the Lake Anne Arts Center.
She told me her name is Gabrielle. She wore a silver Ankh with a ruby at the center around her neck. At the end of our conversation, she said to me, “you have an open heart and beautiful eyes”. Then she said, “it was lovely talking to you and I love you”… as she drove off down the aisle in her scooter.
I bought the carnations and as I was walking out of Costco, it hit me….. I just had a 20 min conversation / encounter with Archangel Gabriel.
Archangel Gabriel is the Angel of the creation of ideas and creativity, communication, belief in oneself and one’s goals, and is known as the Great Messenger.
