Angels Among Us

"We Come In Peace"
Digital Mandala by Kate Jobe 2/6/10

Angels walk among us every day. There are those people that we recognize for their angelic presence...they almost glow from their radiant demeanor...their kindness extends to everyone and everything..their laughter energizes us and makes us feel happy deep down to the tips of our toes....and the angel babies whose smiles light up their faces and reach out toward everyone to envelope them with their love. But angels also walk among us in places and in forms not always recognized....their glow might be masked by an unkempt appearance...they may not fulfill an assumed expectation of piousness...their behavior is sometimes abrasive and impatient. Regardless of their physical qualities, their presence is, at some time, a catalyst to assist others to acquire personal empowerment, healing and spiritual awareness...lessons that sometimes require an unexpected or undesirable presentation to be fully realized. Personal healing is owned when there are no expectations of someone else magically infusing it. An angel may have walked into the landscape of your life to prod you into facing self imposed limitations. They may have appeared as a messenger offering an answer to your prayer. The answer is only effective to the extent that it is heard. If an angel came to help you would you know when it arrived?

Kate, I believe you are one of the angels of whom you speak. I love your art blog! The beauty of your art touches me on many levels and your blog/artist's statements are filled with your wisdom.

Thank you for sharing yourself and your creations.

A very powerful question, indeed, and given the timing of me reading this, I think it was brought by an angel...

What magical work! Makes me think of snow angels (possibly because we are having snow AGAIN here in So Md).
Do you know the poem by Judith Roche? It is one of my favorites about angels because I recognize my angels in it!
