Where Angels Roam

Updated on May 17, 2009

Angels on Television

Where angels go…I may never know, but where angels stay…I will always believe—right here beside me. How did I get into this angel ‘thing’? I believe it just started on this ordinary Friday while doing ordinary waking up chores in my kitchen with the television keeping me company.

The Early Show’s anchorman was interviewing Mr. Vanderberg (or Mr. Crenshaw as he was popularly called) from one of the South LA high schools. He started the Eagle Club that took the kids out of the classroom to places they could not even imagine. The may have read them in books but still not fully comprehend its beauty. Nothing spectacular or exotic…just ordinary nature trails or vacation places for the children with parents who can afford to embank on family outings… with ‘afford’ loosely used—be it money-wise, time, or plain sacrifices. This big-hearted man opened all doors to this adventure experience of a lifetime, even to the unmotivated students and emotionally unreachable lost souls often banned from wonderful school events considered rewards for job well-done, and rightfully so. However, this ‘one special man goes above and beyond’ the duty of a teacher. His vision over-reached what meets the eye; it touched the hearts of these kids and helped them move on to make better choices.

As Early’s Angel, he was rewarded by the show’s sponsors from camping gears to travel flights complete with accommodation to Peru. It’s such a well-deserved and wonderful gesture to one man’s contribution to make the world a little better. Good things are never lost even in the worst time of our economy.

Then…there’s another courageous angel’s flight to fight a debilitating disease. Charlie’s angel, Farrah Fawcett, seems to have reached the painful stage of her cancer. Though according to reports, this latest hospitalization does not seem to be related to her rectal cancer fight. No tranquil moment…as the world follows her struggle with their opinions and emotions coloring her pain. However, she has taken control of what she wants to leave the world behind and how she hopes to be remembered by the people her presence has touched. What started as a personal video journal to aid her memory to track of her now almost 3-year doctors’ visits is now a part of a 2-hour documentary that the world would witness…as NBC aired May 15, 2009--its Best Friday yet in more than a year.

Angels Among Us

Earthly Relationship with Angels

As fatheralexander.org puts it, ANGEL in Greek means messenger. This word denotes mainly their relationship to man. They, as our elder brothers, reveal to us the will of God and assist us....

My trusted friend Mr. Webster defines preposition as 'a relation or function word, as English in, with, across, etc.' Let me then search my own relationship with the angels.

The angel around us...when we are in deep trouble, we raise our eyes heavenward in search of Him, and I believe He sends him or her, or maybe them to guide and watch over us. All we need to do is just look around so we don't miss them.

The angel across from us...yes, it maybe someone across from us--but if we wouldn't try to reach out, we might never know.

The angel next to us...who knows? She too feels my pain, he sees my troubles, or they hear my cry. They are right there beside you and me, to guide and protect us when we least expect them.

The angel behind us...somebody is watching our back--believe it or not! We may not see anyone, but we may feel a thug in our heart if we stand still for a moment or even hear a whisper in the wind if we listen in complete silence.

The angel within us...shucks! Could we be an angel, ourselves? No doubt--if we choose to be one. We could be the angel around someone without hope, across from somebody in anguish, next to anyone with problems, behind everybody under pressure, or...just that free spirit roaming everywhere, ready to lend a helping hand when needed. For isn't there an angel when we need one?

The angel with us...in us...what's the difference? Perhaps, just perhaps...we have one personal guardian angel. He keeps us from hitting that car by a hairline when our mind fails to respond to the red light change. He reminds us to double check that report with an error enough to cause us our job. He prevents us from uttering a word without a thought as to the destruction it could bring to the people we care. Only, if we have faith!

The angel from heaven...will come to us when we need Him! Would I ever question His existence one day? I have no reason to....He is my strength!
