Angels

Updated on March 3, 2011

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.

      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.

      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 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.
