Angels on Earth Today

I got this e-mail from my cousin Janet today:

"My cousin, Jerry, lives in San Antonio, TX. They have 2 little girls aged 3 & 4 yrs old. Two weeks ago Jerry's wife had the girls out in the back yard playing. They were tossing water balloons at each other. Jerry's wife (and I'm sorry but I can't remember her name-I've never met her) ran inside the house to put a load of laundry from the washer into the dryer. She returned to the back yard in approx 2-3 minutes and there she found the 3 yr old sitting in a chair, soaked from head to toe. She asked the 4 yr old what had happened to her little sister and she told her mother that the little girl had gotten into the pool. 

This panicked her mother since the little girl can't swim and is not capable of pulling herself up onto the side of the pool. When asked how she got out of the pool the 4 yr old told her mother that she just pulled herself out. She then asked the 3 yr old how she got out of the pool and she told her mother "a big dragonfly" picked her up out of the pool. Her mother asked her again what really happened, and she said "a big white dragonfly with big wings" picked her up out of the pool and put her in the chair. 

The mother said that they are not perfect people and do not go to church every Sunday, but go when they can, and that they always have God in their hearts. When her daughter told her about the white dragonfly, the only thing she could do at that moment was drop to her knees and thank God for sending his angel to save her little girl.
Reminds me of the verse:
"Their angels in Heaven always behold the face of my Father." Matt.18
