Got His Angels Watching Over Me

Mon, Oct. 12, 2015 Posted: 03:58 PM

My Grandmother died on a Wednesday, we had until Friday to plan a service for Sunday. I called the church, set the ad, invited the people. For me, keeping busy meant no grieving. I had prided myself on my ability to remain staid, while everyone else grieved. About a week after the services I decided to go shopping. I saw a rabbit lined coat that reminded me of the one hanging in her closet. I was going to call her....uh oh.... T-10.....You know that feeling when something's wrong, I mean your heart knows it, but it takes your brain a few seconds to catch up? She's DEAD! Oh My God, that HURT. SHE'S DEAD! SHE'S DEAD! SHE'S DEAD! Someone punched me in the gut....I was so busy trying to control the overwhelming flood of emotions that I didn't even see the woman walking up behind me.I felt a gentle touch upon my shoulder, then turned around and buried my face in her 5'2 frame. I cried, I sobbed, I tried to apologize, but all that kept coming out was incoherent babbling. Finally, as the heaves subsided, she pushed me to arms length, looked at me and said, "All better?". Not trusting myself to speak I simply nodded. "Take Care Dear" she said, and she was gone. Listen I know that's a big cheese pizza, but it really did happen....but there's something else. I can't really put my finger on it. Oh well, my face was a mess, I had to go touch up my make up.

I love Seraphim Angles. I collect them. Gabrielle, the Archangel, is said to be a Seraphim angel. Throughout history, angels have been sent to protect, guide, serve and comfort. Our neighbor's son was in an accident he shouldn't have survived except for a man, dressed in white, reaching down into the cab of his truck, and pulling him to safety. Earth Angels....they can look like the chorus line of A Chorus Line, or they can have brown/silver hair, like my grandmother. You know, after a few days, I remembered what it was about the grandmother in Carson's that had me so perplexed. She was BRITISH! My Grandmother never left me, she just moved. Well Played Father. Well Played. Listen, if you see my angel again, let her know I need that peach cobbler recipe, I never did find it in her things and it's that time of year. What can I say, Don't Judge Me. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today.
