From the time I was, goodness, I guess since I can remember, I have believed in Angels.
I remember being a very young child, probably around the age of 3, and watching It’s a Wonderful Life. It was at the end of the movie, after the visions Clarence shared with George, illustrating the difference he has made in his family’s’ lives, friends’ lives, and the overall community in hopes of getting his wings. Followed by the amazing final scene where everyone floods his home helping pay the money he owes and he finds the book, Adventures of Tom Sawyer and in it is written “Dear George: Remember no man is a failure who has friends. Thanks for the wings! Love, Clarence.” Followed by the reason I ran around ringing every single bell I could get my hands on for the next two years.
I learned so much from It’s a Wonderful Life.
There are also numerous songs that address angels. One of my favorite is Angels among Us.
There are additional movies that address angels. Like Michael and City of Angels.
And then there is television.
I started watching the Oprah Winfrey Network’s (OWN) Super Soul Sundays about six weeks ago and I am hooked. I look forward to coming home from church, having lunch, and then putting the kiddos down for a nap, a.k.a. quiet time, so I can watch the Super Soul Sunday on the DVR (no commercials). This week’s Super Soul Sunday Oprah interviewed Jonas Elrod about his new ability to see spiritual visions and energies. After the interview OWN showed the exclusive made for television premier of his film, Wake Up. (The OWN has also shown exclusive premier viewings of the film I AM and Love Hate Love, both of which are amazing and rent worthy).
And finally there are real life experiences like Jonas’.
On my grandmother’s death bed, surrounded in her home by family, all 15+ of us at the time, she passed. It was early in the morning and most of us were sleeping but an eye-witness that was next to her told her these final words, “I see angel”.
As I stated, I am a believer in angels and I think we each have a guardian angel who watches over us. In fact I think there is some awesome connection between ourselves, our angels, and God.
Do you believe in angels? What type of angels? Do you think you have a guardian angel? Have you ever had an experience with an angel?
