A is for Angels

(This is a Poem I wrote when I was writing my first book, so I think it is appropriate to share on this Auspicious day! I would like to dedicate this posting to Gregg over at Gospel Driven Disciples)

~Angels are Real~

Angels are real    
They're all around us...

In the face of your precious child,
The eyes of a total stranger,
In the hungry cry of a newborn from another
Country
Within memories of loved ones
Even present around that long ago manger

So remember this next time…

Help the homeless on the corner
Or anyone who is in need
Look around you and think...

Without a doubt Angels are real
And they're all around us.

So true a message presented in such a lovely passage. Nice way to start our day. We should all heed this fine advice.
And Gregg's a great fellow blogger--he never fails to leave an outstanding comment when he has something to say about a post.
Thanks for some heavenly poetry.

angels are real. a friend gave her testimony one night that sent tingles down my spine. even the word says that man will entertain angels without even realizing it. thank you for your encouraging comments and blog
