I’ve often wondered what my guardian angel looks like. Maybe a little like Clarence in the movie It’s A Wonderful Life? Or is he more like what I think Gabriel must look like…with the strength of a warrior? We can’t see them of course – angels – but they’re there. The Bible tells us they are.
When I was growing up, there was a picture, a simple unframed print, tacked up on the wall of the hallway in the little house on Victor Drive. Years later, that simple print became mine. It was, and is, one of my treasures. There is a tiny hole near the top of the print where it had been tacked to the wall for years. I treasure that tiny hole as well…for it brings back memories of that little house on Victor Drive.
I’ve since had the print – tiny hole and all – professionally matted and framed. It now hangs in my guest room and will always be in whatever home I’m in. The angel watching over the small children reminds me that I’ve been protected on more than one occasion – no doubt you have as well – and could tell stories to my grandchildren about those times.
Maybe my angels would remind me of some of those stories – if they could.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Psalms 91:11 –
