To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.
- Alphonse De Lamartine, 17th century French writer
In the Bible, heavenly angels often
bring good news—it was an angel
that told Mary she would give birth
to Jesus and angels that heralded
his birth. It was an angel at the tomb
who told of Christ's resurrection.
guardian angels, cherubim and
seraphim—take many forms. They
can appear in dreams, be a voice you
suddenly hear speaking your name,
arrive as a patch of sun breaking
through the clouds, bringing comfort when
you need it most.
