Be Touched and Touch Someone with an Angel

All of our expressed human emotions - positive and negative - are a sum total of who we are.

As we journey through life, we express and experience these emotions, to varying degrees, based on our circumstances and state of mind.

The Angels and Archangels act as our yardstick for cultivation of the good and positive human emotions (Fruits of the Holy Spirit) - Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfullness, Gentleness, Self- Control and more.

And although Angels and Archangels embody all goodness, they often have one or more positive emotions for which they stand out and for which they are thus heralded the Angel or Patron Saint.

These ANGEL Statues, Statuettes and Figurines make lovely gifts that can:

1. Remind us to cultivate a particular positive emotion that does not come easily to us.

2. Tell someone you care about them and are always thinking of them.

3. Send blessings to someone from a special Angel - the Angel of Love, the Angel of Joy or a Christmas Angel.

4. Be a fond reminder of a loved one who passed away due to some illness, like Cancer, or who just died of natural causes.

Whatever, the reason, bring a smile to your face or to someone else's face with these ANGEL Statues, Statuettes and Figurines that provide hope, inspiration and remind us that we are being looked over every day of our lives.

Send Someone Good Wishes - Love, Joy, Peace, Faith

One of my favourite Catholic hymns is "God Gives His People Strength" which was written by Sister M Therese Winter.

There are four (4) verses which offer the believer encouragement and show how, in every life situation that we face as Christians, God provides whatever grace or virtue we need:

- STRENGTH for our daily burdens;

- HOPE when we feel that God isn't answering our prayers or we can't seem to find our way out of some ongoing situation;

- LOVE when we feel alone;

- PEACE & COURAGE in times of deep sorrow.And in one of Jesus' lowest points in life - while praying on the Mount of Olives in the Garden of Gethsemane - we are told in Luke 22:43 that "An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him."

So whatever disappointment, depressing feeling or difficult situation that you or someone you care about is experiencing right now, know that God is with you and will send his angels to take charge of you.

Roman Memorial Angel with Cross and Verse, May You Find Comfort in the Arms of an Angel
Roman Memorial Angel with Cross and Verse, May You Find Comfort in the Arms of an Angel

Help someone find comfort in the arms of the angels and knowing that you care about them.

 

For someone suffering from a chronic or terminal illness, such as a Stroke, Cancer, Kidney (Renal) Failure etc. - this can be a very depressing period, especially when despite physical therapy, chemotherapy, blood transfusions, medication, herbal treatments and more he or she is not getting any better.

Also, losing a loved one, whether through illness, accident or natural causes is always a difficult situation because of the 'finality' of death.

Even though as Christians we hope to see them in Heaven one day soon, we still ache for their physical presence; to share a joke, hear the sound of their voice and laughter, experience the joy of their company, just chat in general and more.

And sometimes despite your best efforts, you feel that there is nothing you can say or do that can sufficiently express how much you share that persons frustration with illness or suffering and sorrow due to the loss of his/her loved one.

Let one of these Angels say it for you and be a constant reminder of your love, prayers, care, sympathy and good wishes for him/her.

Roman In Loving Memory Angel, Dove and Verse

Remind someone that though not physically here their loved one is very close in spirit.

      @Ibidii: Sherry, I am so sorry to hear that your Willow angel which brought you so much comfortable during your close call with death is broken. I am glad, however, that you are still here with us after 5 years taking on new challenges and embracing life and living. Glad you liked my angel selections. Thanks for visiting and sharing how someone's gift of an angel helped you. Have a very blessed weekend and week ahead!

      Many times especially when I almost died 5 years ago. My friend brought me a Willow angel with wire wings. I loved it and it brought me hope and comfort. I felt the angels touch my shoulders many times. I am sad to say that the lady who gave me that angel passed away form cancer. The cat trying to get my attention knocked over the angel and it broke. I glued it. I will have to get another. These are beautiful angels Heidi! Great lens! Bless you!
