Inspirational Words About Angels

Inspirational Words About Angels

"inspirational words - angels"Several years ago, in 1990, I wrote a piece entitled, What Do Angels Look Like? which you will find below. As the title suggests, it is composed of inspirational words about Angels and what we THINK they look like.

When most of us reflect upon Angels, we conjure up pictures in our minds of beautiful mystical beings with opulent wings and golden halos. We may recall various childhood memories of stories told of Angels and what they represent from the various religions we studied, or schools we attended.

But for me, Angels were always so much more than that. They were an ongoing part of my everyday world.

I am sure that if you look at your own life and the people in it, you will find Angels everywhere. The problem is, that most of the time, we just take it all for granted. We go about our day often lost in thought, oblivious to the world all around us, unaware of the miracles that abound and the countless Angels who grace our path.

It is my sincere desire that today, you OPEN YOUR EYES to not only SEE the Angels in your own life, but to be an Angel for someone else. And, It is my profound hope that just for today, you can rise above your mere mortal existence and walk among the gods.

I hope you enjoy these inspirational words below and have an angelic day.

Like the little old lady, who returned your wallet yesterday.

Like the taxi driver, who told you that your eyes light up the world, when you smile.

Like the small child, who showed you the wonder in simple things.

Like the poor man, who offered to share his lunch with you.

Like the rich man, who showed you it really is all possible, if only you believe.

Like the stranger, who just happened to come along, when you had lost your way.

Like the friend, who touched your heart, when you didn’t think you had one left to touch.

Angels come in all sizes and shapes. All ages and skin types.

Some with freckles, some with dimples, some with wrinkles, some without.

They come disguised as friends, enemies, teachers, students, lovers and fools.

They don’t take life too seriously. They travel light.

They leave no forwarding address. They ask for nothing in return.

They wear sneakers with gossamer wings. They get a deal on dry cleaning.

They are hard to find, when your eyes are closed.

But they are everywhere you look, when you CHOOSE TO SEE.

    Recently I was blessed by two angels. Our neighbors saw our house on fire and helped get my husband, our dog, and me out of the house. You are so right in your description of what angels look like. They are everywhere.
