— My Alphabe-Thursday (2nd), "A" Angels I Have Found — "A" Two Questions
"A" is for Angel, this week for Angels I have found.
made him a little lower than the angels."
- Psalm 8:4-5
This one in the picture does not have a name but stands behind our couch, year in, year out as she guards our wooden Nativity Scene characters. We purchased this nativity set in Bethlehem, Israel, back in 1980. You are only seeing the part of it that we now display as it has many other pieces including a manger and a lot of other animals and figures.
This angel might be called "The Angel of Our Home" as she is always out on display. We bought her several years back in Fredericksburg, Texas. She is ceramic and has some handwritten information on the bottom. Except the writing has faded so badly that it cannot be read.
Our 'home angel' was on loan a few years back to a lady who was in Hospice. She agreed that Mrs. Jim could place the angel sitting on her dresser. At that time our friend was not a Christian but became one before she died. The thought of having angels watching over her (not necessarily this angel) may have influenced her decision. Many of her friends had been praying for this.
On October our pastor preached a sermon on angels. It was the first part of a series on the supernatural. He follows his sermons with related e-mailed devotionals for the rest of the week.
Of angels, he related that there are 25 things, general facts from the Bible, to know about angels: (you could looks some of these up if you'd like to learn more)
Now for my Thursday Two Questions.
I really enjoyed your responses to my "Z" Cars post of last week.
2. No I don't have any angels in my house, except for me. Bwahahahahahaha.
3. Audi is my favorite name. She's my great granddaughter and I got to see her yesterday.
Have a terrific day. :)
Thank you so much for your very informative comments. DQ has four outlets in Singapore. One of them is just a ten minutes' walk from our home. A second outlet is just a subway station away. We must try it one day.
Yes, there are angels who are sent by God to help and guide us. Sorry but there aren't any angel decorations at home. "A" for Audrey :D
A lovely weekend to you & yr family!

My favourite A word? I don't know that I have one, but I do love the word 'ample'.
2) I have angels in my home. They are the only holy figurines I have. Although a small collection, most of them are very young angels or cupids, or cherubs as some might refer to them as. You can say I am fascinated by any angel figurines or images.
Blessings, Jim and hope your Thanksgiving was blessed.
Visiting from Alphabe- Thursday - mine for letter 'A' @ ImagesByCW is about 'my' Australia
She adored angels. She had a collection of 100's. After she moved into a care facility my mom rotated them in and out several times a week.
My favorite word for the letter A is ...
Okay. I guess I don't have a specific favorite word for this letter!
