I deeply appreciate the angels that have come into my life.
~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko
Angels come in many forms. They can be ethereal or physical. Tonight I spoke with an angel on a phone who reminded me of the same things I have been trying to tell myself; but, I was not listening. Tonight, my angel came in the form a fabulous listener, loving spirit and supporter of dreams. Her name is Susan Guild of Wake Up Your Magic. She is a co-host to the wonderful bi-monthly blogtalkradio program, Wake Up Your Magic Hour, with Mary D’Alba of Spirtualitygirl. I encourage you to listen to their previous shows. I had the opportunity to call in a couple of times including this past week on September 6. Susan is a phenomenal lady! I deeply appreciate her listening, loving, encouraging and positive spirit.
It goes to show you that the angels in our lives may be familiar people in our lives or new ones that we have never met. They may come in form of pets, wild animals, signs or even feelings. Remember, angels are messengers from God. And, sometimes God calls us forth to be angels for others.
One of my favorite angelic deeds are deliberate acts of love and kindness and paying it forward. Here are some specific examples of such angelic deeds: paying the toll for yourself and the car behind you or paying the bill of the person behind you at a fast food restaurant drive-through. Imagine the joy it would bring to another when we can do actions like that for others.
Sometimes angels get together and do larger deeds. For example, today, a local community church called Crossroads played host to a FREE yard sale. Local residents (they did NOT have to be members of the church) were invited and encouraged to simply show up and take what they needed from the items the church has amassed over the year like clothing, household items and even furniture. The positive and loving energy that was present was amazing this morning. What other pay-it-forward deeds can you imagine and do? Who/what are the angels in your life? Do you appreciate them? How can you be an angel in the lives of others?
