    Well…..I guessed only one correctly, mainline protestant, D, at 55%.
    I guessed, incorrectly, that Catholics would be highest at 81%, and was really surprised that they weren’t (57%) , AND that it was the black protestants that were at 81%. I had black protestants down for 49%. I was way off on the Jewish %….had it down as the 2nd highest at 66%, instead of the lowest at 10%. Fairly close with the evangelical protestant: I had them down for 57%, instead of 66%. I thought the group with no religion would be 10% (20%), and had Other at 20%(49%)!!!!!! Very interesting. I wonder what the angels think of this?!!!!!!!

    I guess I’ve had a couple of guardian angel experiences. Not the typical “Danger Will Robinson” kind, though. I had never really given much thought to angels at all, really, until a short while ago. I was reading about it and how you have to ask them to assist you (unless it’s grave danger). So I did, and just then a tiny little white feather floated down right in front of my face, like “I’m here.” I was at my desk at work. How crazy is that?

    I kept trying to communicate. I remember one day back in January I was at the dentist’s office and he had to leave the room to take a phone call. I was just hanging out by myself and trying to “visualize.” I kept asking her to show me something… appear! Damnit! lol But when my appointment was over, I was driving back home down highway 40 and I looked up, and there was a giant cloud shaped like an angel cradling the sun. It was so cool! I’ve never been much into cloud gazing – actually that’s the first time I even remember noticing clouds in a very very long time.
