A Wish for Wings

Updated on October 13, 2015

Your Angel Wings are Here.

I can honestly say that I haven't always wanted a pair of wings, you know - the "angel" kind. Oh sure I've dressed up as an angel for costume parties, and I played a singing angel in a Christmas play a few years back, but to me it was just role playing. No one ever thinks of the responsibility that real angels of God have, if we did, who would want to be one forever.

When we think of angels of course they have wings right? But not all real angels do. What angels do have in common, whether they have wings or not, is that they are to be a blessing to people by helping them in ways they couldn't necessarily help themselves.

Since coming to this community I saw what angel wings could do for someone. It was then I pursued the idea of getting angel wings (which is really a small bit of power to bless another person).

...for we are blessed to be a blessing to others.

Angel's Wings on MP3

From the East of Everything CD, Marisa sings her version of how God has given her a new life and vision on how she views this world.

The cares of this world no longer bring her down with her "angel wings" point of view reminding her to rise above the circumstances with God at her side.

I Must Simply Fly ... - My wish for wings began.

or is it I simply must fly?

A Wish for Wings that Work - A Christmas Holiday Movie

Everyone has dreams, hopes and wishes.  I think this is one of the reasons I love this little children's movie so much.  It's about wishes that come true.  Opus the little penguin has one wish - for wings so he could fly. He tries everything he can to improvise what would resemble a set of real wings. But nothing worked. Finally, he put in his request to Santa and what do you think happened next?

A Wish for WIngs the Book - A Christmas Wish Comes True

I have had this book in my library for years. My nephew, that was born on Christmas Day, loved penguins and enjoyed hearing the story of a little penguin named Opus who wished for wings so that he could fly like the birds.

The Angel Program that Was ... I miss it.

An Angel Gets Her Wings

On March 20th, 2012 at 6:56 PM I got this message in my inbox:

"Welcome to the Squid Angel Program"

It was form Bonnie, and this is what it said: "You've been approved as a Squid Angel!"  Following the greeting she added the “generic form letter” that gives us some guidance and tips.  Even though I know it is a message all new Squid Angels receive, I was excited and glad to be receiving that same letter so many have gotten before me. 

She closed with a message giving a thumbs up to having fun blessing lenses, as I was welcomed to the team.

Winged Points? What is this I see?

When I received this message about angel wings

I was reading spirituality’s article. I didn’t know what it meant, so I kept reading.

Then I went to my activity page to see what the points were and found a trophy I hadn’t seen before on my page. I went to the trophy page and clicked on the new trophy, but wasn’t sure what it meant still. So I checked my e-mail and sure enough Bonnie had left me a message. It was official, I got my wings

This is what I saw. See the list of the "New Angels" on "Squidoo".
