Angels are Around Us

Most of us have heard the word "Angel" as it applies to those moguls that finance theatrical productions on Broadway. Others at posh invitation-only galas are there to pledge millions of dollars towards a particular charity.

Both are worthy endeavors. One brings joy, employment and entertainment. These galas produce needed monies to finance research in medicine to alleviate man's pain and possibly provide cures yet unknown.

But these angels pale in comparison to the thousands of unknown angels that care for the ill and the elderly. These "angels", no matter how tired they may be, are ever cheerful, up-beat, and filled with so much encouragement, that it becomes contagious. They come in all shapes and sizes. When off - duty, they blend into the crowd. That suits them just fine because they seek no applause; just a little progress and a smile from the ones they are helping.
This is their reward.

Despite their own pain, they put the care of their "charge" first.
These are God's real angels! They don't have wings, as artists have depicted them down through the ages. You may be certain that He smiles on them and has a special place in heaven for each of them.

  1. TRUE TRUE - - - AN ANGEL CAN BE PART OF AN ORDINARY DAY'S ACTIVITY, THEN LATER REALIZE THAT WITHOUT THIS APPEARANCE THAT PREVENTED MY BEING IN A 'HEAP OF TROUBLE', THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO WITNESS THAT I WAS INNOCENT OF VERY SERIOUS CHARGES.

    SINCERE FAITH IN GOD, I BELIEVE, CAN PROVIDE THAT ANGEL TO PREVENT CATASTROPHY.

    NO, IT DOES NOT HAPPEN EVERY TIME, WHICH DOES NOT DIMINISH MY FAITH.
    MISFORTUNE SOMETIMES HAPPENS TO GOOD PEOPLE. GOD KNOWS WHY. TRUST, WORSHIP HIM.
    PRAY FOR SALVATION. LUKE CH.1-v37. sam
