Anonymous angels

Hanging in my bedroom in Houston.
Hanging in my bedroom in Houston.

I boarded a full flight from Denver to Houston, the kind with no assigned seating, and found a middle seat not too far back.  The usual chit chat was struck up by the gentleman on the aisle and it turns out that his wife, who was seated at the window on the other side of me, had just completed a year of aggressive breast cancer treatment at MD Anderson and is now cancer-free.  They both raved about the level of care and medical expertise by the oncologists there, and assured me that I would be in excellent hands. I took this as a sign that I am definitely heading to the right place.

I stepped off the plane in Houston, and the first thing that caught my eye was a giant billboard above the terminal advertising MD Anderson Cancer Center. Yep, sign number two.

The very literal sign #2

I then had an hour to wait for my mom’s flight from Florida to arrive.  I took a comfortable seat at the back of a coffee shop and dug out all my electronic devices that had been “powered down and stowed under the seat in front of me for the duration of the flight.”  I connected to the airport wi-fi and was pulling up my Pandora when I overheard three young men next to me discussing scholarly texts about the Bible. I became curious and asked if they happened to be seminary students.  Two were pastors, and the other was a seminary student.  They had been in Houston for a conference about building peace and justice centers in local communities, and the student was about to fly to Ferguson, MO to implement a program there.  I introduced myself, dropped my brain tumor bomb at their feet, and boldly asked them to pray with and for me.  I was very moved by their kindness to a complete stranger asking for spiritual help, and by their words of prayer as we sat huddled in a circle in the back of a crowded airport coffee shop.  They then very humbly thanked ME, and gave me one of their email addresses to update them when I have more news.

I’ve heard many times that coincidences are God’s way of staying anonymous. I was sent many angels today to let me know that I am in the right place and that I will be healed.

More will be revealed… Love,

    1. I’m just here trying to get a diagnosis . My brain tumor has not been diagnosed as cancer and may turn out to be benign. I’m not making any decision about treatment yet and likely will choose an integrative approach.


  1. “Fear knocked at my door. Faith answered. There was no one there”. Dawn keep your heart filled with faith so there is little or no room for fear. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you. Mary Ann
