…to see an angel at work today.
Marlene’s thoughtful post about meeting angels in our everyday life warmed my heart and set me thinking back over the last few days. I realised I’d had several angel encounters, but in the busyness of life they’d passed me by so fleetingly and I hadn’t appreciated their significance.
The beautiful woman who complimented me on my hair at a social function where I was feeling out of my depth and lonely. My little granddaughter who hugged me so closely. My DH who brought me breakfast on a tray. A dear friend who has taken on board my enthusiasm for a new project.
Who knows how many I’ve missed? We all have, I’m sure.
Have you taken the time to be an angel to someone lately? I know I need to be more sensitive to these opportunities. Years ago, when we paid our bridge toll with actual coins I would often give the toll-man extra to pay for the driver in the car behind me.
A dear friend used to say “Expect a miracle every day”. You may prefer to call them Random Acts of Kindness, but whatever label we put on them I believe they are God’s way of reminding us that he always has his hand gently on us.
God’s angels are at work and miracles do happen – but we need to be actively looking for them.
