Angels

Angels

There are angels all about us
most often in disguise,
come in many shapes and colors,
can be any age or size.


Bearers of God's Graces,
arriving right on time...
they bring strength and solace
to the Kingdom's paradigm.


They sometimes rescue danger
or comfort those who mourn...
will touch the heart that's broken,
encourage the forlorn.


There've been many angels
that have crossed my path in life,
whose tender loving kindness
bore me through endless strife.


And in return, it is my yen
to be an angel, too...
I owe a debt of gratitude,
a debt long overdue.

I agree...Angels are around us 24/7. It is upto us to recognize them and learn to pause and appreciate them!

Well written and explained!!

Have you read my hubs about angels, one is "How I Found my Guardian Angel" and "Have You Seen Your Angel" ? I am glad you are in touch with your angels. I know I am in touch with mine. As always, good hub. :)

Very nice words of angels

they are so true, always around to protect and guide us.

I don't think we can ever repay God for them :) we can try though

Thanks for sharing.

Thankyou,ladyjojo. Perhaps we cannot repay, but I believe we should give as we were freely given...for it is what God expects. Peace!

Very beautiful. I've always felt the presence of a Guardian Angel. I wrote a poem about my fear of heights and my Angel. Thank you.
