Joseph Smith—History 1:30 -- On Angels

"While I was thus in the act of calling upon God, I discovered a light appearing in my room, which continued to increase until the room was lighter than at noonday, when immediately a personage appeared at my bedside, standing in the air, for his feet did not touch the floor."
Joseph Smith—History 1:30

We read in the scriptures all the time of things like this happening, but I can't imagine how overwhelming it would be to see in person.  A personage standing in the air.  I think that might help you to take whatever the person said more seriously, as well as recognizing that it was a messenger from God. :)  I also like the light part, and whether the light is emanating from the personage / angel, or whether it is the way that they they travel, either or both is amazing.
The coolest part is that it is all from God, who promises to reveal all things eventually, so someday we will have the chance to know how all of it works, and maybe even to participate ourselves in events like this.  Today, let's remember how overwhelmingly amazing God and his ways are, and let's live worthy of continued revelation. :)
