Do you believe in Angels?  I certainly do…may this series of short stories delight your senses with awe…

Joan is a longtime friend.  I met her at church, her presence attracted me as she  bowed towards the sanctuary in an aura of reverence that I yearned for myself.  She shared about her niece who is a hidden visionary bedridden in frail illness who oftentimes converses with Jesus.  I believed her and quickly asked Joan if her niece could reveal the names of my family’s guardian angels.  Months passed, while at church again, Joan slipped a piece of paper into my hand where the names were written…how thrilling!  To this day I honor these guardian angels daily and especially when something urgent or dreadful unfolds.

My next encounter with Angels came through Mother Angelica as she described the Nine Choirs of Angels…further captivated by their decreeing duties, most especially the Dominions who disperse weather conditions.  At the roar of thunder or lightning strike, I often say, “O God, please give us your mercy!”  You see, our guardian angels help us prepare for our eternal destination.  They always keep sight of God for our personal intentions.  They forever protect us so we may achieve our individual destiny.

Angels continue to come my way.  Once, my husband came home with a large box from a yard sale.  “Here,” he said, “these are for you,” quickly tearing off the newspaper wrapping, I discovered three layers of angel figurines made of metal, wax, ceramic and crystal in various shapes and colors…my heart rejoiced at this treasure.  In time, I have passed them along as gifts and retained a few to keep.

Let’s pause for now as I continue posting more angel stories…hoping you will come back for more…
