How much thought have you given to angels? When did you first "discover" them? What is their purpose? Why are they here? Who sent them?
When we were young we were told about a man who came while we slept and put presents for us under the tree. We were also told about a bunny who would leave a basket of goodies on the table for us while we slept. Then we were told when we lost a tooth, the tooth fairy would come and put money under our pillow in exchange for our baby tooth while we were fast asleep. We, of course, tell our kids the same things. (Maybe part of the reason we tell these tales is to get them to sleep!! Can I get a witness?!?)
So many fairy tales we tell and believe in when we are young. I remember getting older and not believing in them anymore. It was a let down. What is there to believe in when you reach that age? Is there anything to hope for anymore? "Absolutely!" is the answer to those questions.
One of the reasons I wrote the Where Is Your Angel?™ series is to give lasting hope and to create uplifting dialogue. Angels are something that last in every season and in every stage of life. Angels point us to the God who created us and loves us. They are His extension of His love and care for us here on earth.
You are invited to come along on the journey with me, and with your angel, and discover (or re-discover) the joyful delight of angels, the child-like belief and faith that give you hope no matter your age.
Thinking about it with you.
