I have always loved pictures of Angels. The Bible mentions them many times and as a little girl I was fascinated by the thoughts of angels being around me. My mommy would pray that the angels would surround me and that the Lord would watch over me. I loved that. To me angels are so comforting. I believe they are in a different realm from our earthly home, but I truly believe they are here.
I always love the angels in the Christmas pageants. Pretty wings and sweet innocent expressions. That's how I see the female and children angels. I imagine male angels as strong and confident. The Lord would send them to relay messages to mortals and nearly always they must have frightened because they(the angels) would say, "Do not be afraid."
There's much we don't know about angels, but I believe someday we will understand so much more. So many things will be revealed to us. I sometimes think that so many of these things I wonder about and want to ask about when I get to heaven will probably fade away when I get to see Jesus. May we always commit everything to Him and be able to have a peace that passes all understanding.
Do you believe there are angels in 2008?
