— 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.

Two Shoes Tuesday # 12 -- "Gather"
Gather round for Thanksgiving. What is your favorite desert? Mine would be a nice 'Coconut Cream Pie' either homemade or store bought. Store bought IF it came from an Luby's Cafeteria in-house bakery would be wonderful.
I also like banana creme pie and apple pie. And Thanksgiving would not be complete without either pumpkin or sweet potato pie. Pumpkin pie is my favorite vegetable.
If your mind cannot conjure up a picture of a nice tasting banana creme pie, click this link, http://food.sndimg.com/img/recipes/14/97/9/large/picCUBCXa.jpg , to see a nice pie. Photo by Sharlene~W. (Food.com link)
This may be banana week for me. Sunday I posted a picture story about two plush toy fuzzy monkeys eating bananas. Scroll down to the previous or click here.
These bananas are Dole brand. We get a lot of these coming into the Galveston Sea Port. I imagine more still come in through the Houston Ship Channel to the Port of Houston.
I like Chiquita brand bananas the best. That may be because of an old song, too old (1944) for most of you to have heard, about Chiquita Bananas. The same goes for pineapple and cantaloupe also.
Chiquita Banana (1944)
sung by Carmen Miranda
I'm Chiquita banana and I've come to say
Bananas have to ripen in a certain way
When they are fleck'd with brown and have a golden hue Bananas taste the best and are best for you
You can put them in a salad
You can put them in a pie-aye
Any way you want to eat them
It's impossible to beat them
But, bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator
So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator
This posting is for this week's round of Two Shoes Tuesday... a place to share what we enjoy doing most... writing! Each week we have a one-word writing prompt and are asked by Josie to share a short story, poem, essay, thought, or photo relating to that topic.

The generics were bad.
