A Box of Worry Angels

Updated on January 23, 2015

Tiny Guardian Angels - A Loving Gift of Faith for Someone Who Worries Too Much

My dear friend, a senior lady, makes herself just sick with worry so she can't even sleep at night, and it's hard not to be able to help her feel at ease.

But she's a woman of strong faith - though that faith is often tested - and I think a pretty little box of dainty glass Worry Angels may help her find peace.

Three tiny glass angels - in pink, aqua-blue and clear glass, each with a golden halo - rest on a satin cushion in a creamy light-beige damask box. These are the Worry Angels, to whom the one who worries will confide her cares....

Angel Poem is included

Explains the purpose of the figurines

I won't repeat the Angel Worry Poem here because it's copyright to the Mayflower Glass folks who created the box of worry angels and the poem that goes with it, but the words are shown in the photograph, inside the open lid of the box.

"Keep this box forever near..."

Whenever you're burdened by worries about something, tell your troubles to these three angels and "hope and love will start" - because it's the nature of these heavenly guardians to love and care for us frail humans in our times of trouble, isn't it?

The poem goes on to say you should keep the box (and thus, the love and care of the angels inside it) close to you, for those times when you need to regain the feeling of peace and contentment.

Glass Worry Angels are available in the United States via Amazon.com

In the USA and anywhere else Amazon.com will ship to, you can buy your angels here. Or, alternatively, you might want to DIY a custom variation. Just browse for another set of miniature angels and pair them with a box that has special meaning for you and your fretting friend - perhaps made by a local craftsman or a gifted member of your family?

A Lovely Damask Box

I like the idea of the three tiny Worry Angels living insdie their elegant little ivory-colored box covered with damask fabric. For one thing, the box can be closed up to keep all those the worries inside!

This is pretty enough to sit on the bedside table of an invalid or bedridden senior, in a china cabinet, or on a dressing table or desk - anywhere close at hand.

But you may want to put your own spin on the idea and, instead of this boxed set, perhaps give your worrying friend or family member one single larger angel figurine they can put on a shelf or prominent spot in their home or office, as a constant reminder that there is no benefit in fretting because our cares are, ultimately, in other hands... You could even write your own poem or note to go with it, for a really personal touch.

Do you know a "Worry-wort" who needs a box of angels?

      Me! I need some worry angels! Enough about me though. This is a nice lens on a lovely topic, and I think it's great that you're encouraging people to buy from a place where money will go to charity rather than Amazon if possible. Your lens about angels has now been blessed by a squid angel :-)

      These are so cool. I made worry boxes when I was a little girl...nice to see you can buy them. I think these would make the ultimate gift.
