Be An Angel Day

Do you believe in angels?  Be an angel just for the day!

This cute picture of 3 little angels-one with a slightly tipsy halo is perfect for the 3 sissies. Karen would be the one with her halo firmly in place, Kat and I switch back and forth as to which one of us has our the halo askew.

The National Be An Angel Day started in 1993, when a woman was swept up in the growing interest of angels and their role in our lives. Some of the questions of the time concerned the nature of angels. The Greek word “angelos” and the Hebrew word “malak” mean messenger.

Scriptures are replete with examples of angels appearing with messages from God-and I love that their first words were usually, “Fear not.” I assume from that greeting, angels are quite the sight to see and might even inspire, along with awe, a little fear. It might also be that angels are said to have a “voice like thunder.”

So, what do angels DO? They serve God-praise him and reveal His will for man. They have been sent on errands to protect us and ensure our well-being. Angels stand up for us and take on our personal adversaries.

The belief in guardian angels could be traced back to this promise made in Psalms 91:11:  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  Don’t you love that?   In a world that might seem a little crazy, we have angels whose charge is to keep us in all our ways.

So, how do we celebrate Be An Angel Day? Following the examples we’ve been given, maybe being a messenger of good, of hope and love is required of us for the day.
