In the Company of Angels

It's comforting to think about angels. 

These Celestial beings are supposed to guide and protect their earthly assignees. Certainly, there have been times when I've had a close call, an "almost" car accident or a slip on a stairwell when a grab of the railing kept me from propelling to the bottom.  No doubt, to me, an angel intervened, saving me from harm. God places angels where He needs them most.

There are all kinds of angel images found around our house. They make me smile and give thanks for them as well as for their bigger, more spiritual counterparts.

There used to be a tv show, "Touched by an Angel" with Roma Downey. Some people thought it was hokey but I always loved watching it. Whenever I see re-runs of it, I enjoy them immensely.

This little guy sits on top of our family guest books. Whenever there is a special occasion in our house, guests who want to, can add a comment about the visit. It's fun to look back on these events and read what people wrote. When no one is visiting, little sleeping angel guards the books!

I love the Touched by an Angel series. I strongly believe angels do walk on earth when there is a blessing needed in someones life!! Your little angels are adorable.

I believe that my mother is an angel here on earth. She spreads the word of our Lord and touches everyone that she meets even complete strangers - I 'm not kidding. And yes I do believe that there are heavenly angels among us too.

Enjoy your weekend!

Absolutely believe it. I love the little book angel.

I do believe in angels and I once read a book Billy Graham read about Angels.

I believe there are people on earth that are a lot like angels.

And I believe that God gives us gifts - you call them angels and I call them God WInks.

By the way - you are one of them to me.

I love angels, too. I can't say I'm aware of any encounters with them, but I'm pretty certain they've been around. I loved that tv series. I thought it was sweet. Now all that's on is how to commit a murder and get away with it.

There ARE angels. Read your Bible. I have had things occur in my life but most recently my daughter has been "visited" by angels in the form of ordinary people. There has been such an increase of activity around her since her encounter with one such man at a buffet type restaurant. Be open and aware of such things. God does talk to us. We just need to learn to listen.

Hi Susan! Your angel on top of the book is adorable! Not really sure what I believe about angels, but there have been some in movies that sure make me want to believe! :)
How about Cary Grant in "The Bishop's Wife"....and the Angel Clarence in "It's a Wonderful Life" ..?? :D
