angel lettersThe word angel means messenger, in both Greek and Arabic. Angels bring warnings, comfort, news. They guard. They help. They heal. They save our lives or carry us away to blessed death. They send us notes or messages that we need; and always they are pointing to something greater than themselves.
     Always they say what angels say, “Don’t be afraid. Don’t worry. Everything will be all right. We are here.” Then they send us the scent of roses or oranges as a sign, or give us a cup of coffee. And they never lay blame on us. They never say, “Boy are you in a peck of trouble now.” They never accuse, “You fool! Look what you’ve gone and done!” No, but always, “Don’t be afraid. We’re taking care of things. You’re going to like this now.”
