BECAUSE I'LL JOIN WITH THE ANGELS SINGING


GLORIA!


AND I CAN FEEL CHRISTMAS LIKE A CHILD.



Heavenly Angels, or guardian Angels, as I like to call them are part of my life, I think they probably always have been. Just like I've always known God is here, they've always shown signs of their existence before I even knew who they were. (I didn't know Angel is the Greek word for Messenger? ) I've read that they are mentioned numerous times in the Scriptures so therein they are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him, sent to watch over us, guard and protect us from danger and deliver His message. Those messages can be warnings of impending danger-like the time when Keely ran into the busy 4-lane highway and then-for- no- apparent- reason -someone whispered in my ear "check on Keely", thankfully I super-womanly-jumped a seemingly.. grand canyon of a cement hole, and grabbed her, by the collar.. just in time.. before the spinning wheels of a car ran .. her over..Wheww!ok..then. Sometimes they can be instructions on what to do in a particular situation. I know they were with me when I (scared and by myself) in the dark streets of San Francisco was lost at 2:am with no map! Sometimes they are just there as protection from enemy forces! (like when you get that Mother-bear strength) Sometimes they bring Joyful announcements! like finding out your going to have a baby after 7 years of trying. (or esp the Birth of Christ) You get my point!
They can come as an accident or a coincidence .... come as intuition and come in dreams! They can come as humans or even as animals! I know my family thought we had an angel sitting with us in the hospital when this man was staring at us through Mike's whole surgery then he just vanished into the air when the Dr. came out. It had been dark and cold and then the sun came out and the whole waiting room lit up! I'm not kidding you..I have witness's. We joked about it later.
I also read, that there are 3 marks of an angel: the 1st is they always come as LIGHT.....warm, home, safety, mother.....you are washed with Peace and Joy! See. I like that! Don't you? 2nd: they always say the same thing. "DON'T BE AFRAID! FEAR NOT!" Yeahh! gets better..huh? 3rd: You may not believe what happened to you but neither will you forget. I know!!! It's happened to me many of times. These handmaidens of God are composed of Love and I know they drop money to let me know they are there and that everything is going to work out alright... but that's another story I'll have to tell you about. They seem to be saying lighten up! Don't take things so seriously! If what it means to be an angel is to be a messanger fro God, then someone who comes to our aid, brings us the touch of God's Love, or perhaps offers us a good challenge or an opportunity to do the forgiving ..ourselves can be that messenger! Wow! Neat, Huh? so as you can probably tell............. I believe in angels, do you?
