I was struggling with an art journal entry over the weekend. It seemed that the color choice was the issue, but I realize now that it wasn't color at all. It was something more that was playing havoc with my inspiration and motivation.
This morning I woke up knowing that my journal page was to be of an angel. Though I believe in angels as heavenly beings, this page was about how we fly in times of struggle with the help of another.
According to the Bible, an angel is a pure spirit created by God.
Although the word "angel" in the Bible, meaning a messenger, nearly always applies to heavenly beings, it can occasionally apply to human messengers.
I believe that some angels are right here with us every day. They are real people with a special purpose. They are unassuming and they are simply there when they are needed. They show up when we need them most. Sometimes, it is somebody we know, and sometimes it is not.
Notice the people who always help out, always give their best, never let anyone down. The people that others turn to when they need a safe haven.
Those are angels among us. They are examples of God's love.
They are here to show us love and teach us about love.
Ok ... so here is the crazy part and yet the part that shows me the sense in my struggle over this page. I no sooner finished the page and was scanning it (to make note cards) when I opened facebook to see an entry in an art group I belong to. Someone was reaching out to the group for help. They have had an enormous amount of struggles in their life lately and I think they just knew that it was time to ask for help. They needed an angel to walk with them. She has quite a few angels walking with her now as this group is so amazing.
