Working Overtime

I have always thought my guardian angels do not get paid enough for taking care of me. I suspect that they are constantly making sure that my foot does not stumble nor do I fall. God bless them! They have saved me from so much over the decades. I am so very grateful for them on this Feast Day of the Guardian Angels.

When I saw this broken statue in Berlin, I wondered if angels suffered loss of limb during the war, trying to protect their charges. Honestly, they wrap their loving arms around us to keep us safe and we do not know the consequences of their actions. Their gracious wings enfold us and keep us from harm’s ravages. In this shelter, we are left unaware of the cost of their presence in our lives.

I believe in angels–and I truly believe that I have a tag team keeping me safe and sane. I have felt them. I have heard them whispering to me to be attentive. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the heavenly hosts that are dedicated to my well-being.

What do you believe when it comes to angels?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
