Angels On Earth

Many people believe that angels are God's
messengers at work in the world today.
Angels come in many forms, from
helpful animals to mysterious strangers,
from glorious heavenly angels to
earth angels, human beings who
generously help others.

 

Angels can also come to us in
dreams, on a breeze, or in a
strain of music. When they
appear, they always radiate
life-affirming hope.
