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?

“We are, each of us, angels with only one wing, and we can only fly embracing each other.”
– Luciano Decrescenzo
We need each other. To deny this simple fact would be foolish. Oh, sure, we could survive without others, but to truly live, soar and be happy, it takes us to be in commune with others. It is spiritually uplifting to embrace others and be love for others. Look at children. They gravitate towards each other, play and embrace. We can learn so much from this young community of angels.
Joy comes when one recognizes the angels that come into our lives.
An angel came indirectly into my life tonight when my parents were stranded. My parents were in the parking lot of one of those warehouse stores that sell items in bulk. Their car engine was being stubborn and would not start; furthermore, they also had a flat tire. An angel came to help them. The angel came in the form of an adult male who took over exchanging the flat tire for the spare one. This task proved to be a bit daunting for my aging father (who in his heart and in his mind is still 23 years old) as the tires were quite heavy.
The angel also allowed my parents to use his mobile phone to call me; unfortunately I was unreachable. My parents decided to proceed with their shopping. Then another unseen angel (or more) came down and blessed the car engine as it miraculously started when they were ready to leave the store. Another angel allowed my mother to use her mobile phone to let me know that they no longer needed my assistance. Three or more angels blessed our family tonight. We are JOYFUL.
Upon reflection, I not only see the joy in this experience; but, I also see a lesson. How can we be the angel in the lives of other people? Sometimes is can be something as easy as allowing someone you do not know to use your phone; or, it can be something as big as helping another change a tire. It can be helping a mother struggling with babies and packages with her items. It can be holding the door open for another.
