Are You An Angel?
Are You An Angel?
Are you an Angel?
We all know, here in blogland, there are several that call themselves "angels." And I will be the first to tell you, some of them must actually be!
For many, Angels are as real as you and I. They are among us, even as we go about our daily lives, watching us, sometimes guiding us, sometimes, perhaps... helping us make good decisions that will effect the rest of our lives.
What if, ... just what if there are more Angels among us than we ever imagined?
What if some of the Angels "don't even know" they're Angels?
What if they are "almost" Angels? Angels under training, for lack of a better name. The ones who, for whatever reason, didn't quite fulfill what they were supposed to accomplish in their life, and didn't qualify for Angel hood. And because they were good enough not to be sent elsewhere, they were sent back here to "finish the work."
But, this extra chance isn't exactly an extra chance. They are living their lives as if they have been here all along. In fact, they aren't even aware of any other past life. They are just like we are.... making everyday choices and decisions that have the same impact in this world just like ours do.
Okay, strange thought huh? Even stranger, what if you were one of these "almost an Angel?" Or your next door neighbor was? Or lover? And they don't have a clue as to what it is they're supposed to accomplish. (Ever heard someone say," I must be here for a reason." ) Yeah, I've said it too.
We all know someone who it is said of them, "There isn't anyone better than they are." Or, "They are just too good to be true." It might be, they're an Angel... and they have either accomplished, or almost accomplished what they were sent to do. Their "aura" shines so brilliantly around them that we mortals can actually feel it when we are in their presence.
Imagine that you are one of our "almost an angel." What do you think you were sent back to do? And have you done it yet?
And, the next time you have a disagreement with someone, be careful what you say. You just might be talking with an Angel.
Just pondering the thoughts of Angel hood, and wondering. Have a fabulous day!

Ah....this is a good one! I too feel that there are Angels among us....and this does make you think that we might be one of them. I also believe that we are here for a reason. The funny thing about all of this.....I have two sisters...and awhile back there was a Hallmark picture, used alot that depicted three angels. The one in the middle had her halo on crooked....and my sister always said that one was me. And in my bedroom is another picture of five angels singing and angelic in ther robes and wings. And the one in the middle is showing her "tennis shoes" and kind of throwing her arm out in a "I'm the star" way. My good friend gave me this one....and of course because I reminded her of the angel in the middle. So, if...and this is a big huge IF.....I were an angel in disguise....I guess I would still be here because I hadn't learned to completely play by the rules yet. |

I too have often said, "I must be here for a reason," although I never thought I might be an angel. No, I think I was disqualified from that elite group a LONG time ago. However, I have known some people I am sure ARE angels in disguise, and I cannot imagine my life without them in it. Some were present for only a season--and a very short one at that--and others have been here as long as I can remember. But all of them have made my life richer for having known them.|
Now taking that quantum leap, and imagining that I might possibly be an angel in disguise to others, what is the mission I was sent to accomplish? The first thing that comes to my mind is that I am here to comfort those who mourn, particularly those who have suffered the loss of a child. Have I done that yet? Yes, I believe I have, but unfortunately, I feel there are still more I have yet to comfort, so I have not totally accomplished my mission.
The other reason that comes to mind for why I may be here is to show that you can still be happy and live a productive life even if you've been dealt a few blows. Goodness knows this isn't the life I would have laid out if I was writing the script. However, it is the life I have been given, and I intend to make it the very best one possible. My plan is to live my life in such a way that at the moment of my death, I will not look back and say, "If only I had..." This doesn't mean I live without regrets; I believe anyone my age (more or less) will have a few. But I tend to think of those events as "teachable moments," and try to learn the lesson I am supposed to learn, and move on with my new knowledge.
This turned out to be a bit heavier than I intended, but I can't think of a better way to explain my thinking. Any questions, just ask. I'll try to clear up the confusion.
