We are, each of us, angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.
- Luciano De Crescenzo
I don’t play games on my computer during work hours (or otherwise, actually), but I do like to surf around to see what’s happening angel-wise. Here are some sites I came across this morning, all of which were new to me!
We love our angel illustrations at Angels on Earth, so angel art always gets my attention. For her “Angels Among Us” collection, artist Nancy Sandheinrich has created stunning mixed-media collages with distinctly angelic themes. Each piece is unique, but Sandheinrich intends all of them to share one thing in common: an “affirming message of love.”
In her blog for Beliefnet, angel author Susan Gregg offers her insights on angels and their influence in our lives. Overcoming fear, learning to forgive and seeing the world’s beauty are topics of recent posts. Susan is an outdoorsy person who loves her animal rescues and lives in Hawaii. I want to see pictures!
This site features a scholarly article on angelology, the study of angels, by J. Hampton Keathley, III, a 1966 graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and a pastor. You’ll find scripture references to answer questions on angelic terms, appearance and more. For me there’s nothing like a good, true, first-person earth angels story to keep my belief in angels alive, but sometimes it’s fun to get down to the basics in the Bible.
