We Are Angels.

I am seeing more and more butterflies these days. Whenever I go outside I see one floating gracefully on the wind. Many have even landed on my arm, hand, or head.

I always feel touched by my Mom's loving presence whenever I see one. She loved butterflies when she was here on Earth and now that she has passed to Heaven I can still feel her loving spirit touch my heart when a butterfly glides by. I think that she must be riding down on a butterfly's back every so often to check up on me. I have no doubt that she has become an angel in Heaven. She was always like an angel to me while she was here on Earth.


I am sure that most of you know more than one person who has been like an angel to you at times. I know many people who have been like angels to me although they would never admit it themselves.


The truth is that each and everyone of us has the qualities of an angel within us. We just don't choose to use them, share them, or grow stronger in them. Look deep within yourself. Look down to the very core of your being. Look past all the pain and scars of your thoughts and feelings to the very center of your soul. If you look deeply enough you will see the angelic love and joy that still lies within you. It is up to you, though, to choose this love and joy, to bring it out of yourself, and to share it with the world.

  We are all angels. We are all children of God. We are all beings of love and light. We can deny this truth or we can welcome it into our hearts, minds, and souls. We can forget who we really are or we can become the wonderful, glorious people God meant for us to be. We can live in misery and despair or we can choose and share love and joy for all of our days. We can ignore the angel within us or we can be an angel on Earth and later in Heaven.
