Under Cover

With so many pine needles and leaves collecting on the car, we try to remember to cover it when we come home.

Yesterday on our way out in the rain, when we pulled back the cover on the passenger side, there was a little tree frog on the window. Soon we uncovered another one. I had to get a picture and ran back to the cottage for the camera.

I was so happy the little duo waited for their celebrity status as I snapped away like a fool in the rain.

I like to think that for all you who are yearning for that perfect mate, take this picture as a hint. Fully Rely on God (F.R.O.G.) that soon a wonderful new partner will be revealed to you. Think of the joy and the places you'll go.


Angelic blessings,

Happy Anniversary, Angel!

This month  we celebrate our second anniversary with our sweet Angel cat who ended up being an answer to a prayer.  A surprise house warming gift from a visiting friend who had suggested we look for a kitten at the local shelters. Love knows no age, and so when I first saw Angel, she had recently delivered a litter of kittens, but she was the one for me.  Her arrival put a stop to any country mice that had been visiting our little cottage on the farm. Word traveled fast...not a mouse in the house.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

A Tribute to Mom and Dad

I found this old snapshot of my parents on the farm. They were dating and goofing off for the camera. It was kind of interesting how by holding hands they made the "M" letter. M..M..Marriage?

My friend Drew sent email joking about my Mom, Elliot and I barreling down on the 5th ANGL truck on Interstate 64 in the last blog. "You just aren't right." She laughed lovingly.

With folks like this, you can see why. Only kidding, I thank my parents for making me what I am today.

Wishing you a joyful day with your Angels.

Angels Watch You Fly

On I-64 yesterday, taking Mom back home, the sticker on the rear window of this truck caught my eye. It was something like, We see you fly.

Then I looked at the license plate, 5th ANGL

It rang a bell from something I recently read in a favorite book Talking with Angels. "The fifth level is that of the ANGELS, where peace and silence reign."

With Elliot at the wheel accelerating for a close-up , I grabbed my camera. Mom hung tight in the back seat, urging us on.

Just now enlarging the picture, I saw the timing included Victory Boulevard. And the Christ number 17! Wonderful signs from our celestial friends.

Enjoy your journey with the Angels.

Defying Gravity


Early this morning while still in bed, I saw a gray squirrel make a daring move. The walnut tree, at the front of the cottage, is where his route began as I heard him on the roof scampering to the back yard. Flying through the air, he landed upside down on a bouncy thin branch of the old apple tree. An impressive feat, but even more amazing, in his mouth he carried a big green walnut, the size of his head. What a leap of faith. He didn't even break his stride, scurrying up the tree with his prize.

Watching this wild maneuver, I got to thinking of the old adage, "If you want to get to the fruit of the tree, you have to go out on a limb." I was curious that he had the fruit so why take a risk?

Then I got it.

The laws of gravity don't apply to euphoria!. Recently, I came across those words in an old National Geographic magazine. I clipped out the ad and saved it.

May today be the day your joy exceeds your so-called limitations. The Angels are reaching out wanting you to take the ride of your life.

Blessings,

Karen

Backflip

(Photo by Gregory T. Chaly)

I found this framed photograph of a humpback whale at a second hand store here at the Beach. I took this picture that doesn't really do it justice but you can get the idea. The photographer entitled it Backflip. I can't imagine the energy needed to flip this amazing tonnage. And yet it happens. Suddenly, the inspiration surges, lifting it high enough to flip out of the water. What was hidden is now revealed by seeing in a new direction. The view, an expansive awareness of life. A new dimension.

Whales, as you see, will occasionally breach, coming completely out of the water. The message of the whale asks, How are you using your creative ability? "Are you keeping everything inside? Afraid to let it out? If so it's time to breach. Show the magnificence and power of your own creativity. Do not hold back." (Animal-Speak)

The humpback whale is noted for its wonderful song. May you sing a new song this day with the help of your Angels.

Blessings,

Karen

Bridging the Gap

(Photo by Chris Castle)

This beautiful sunset, taken by my dear friend Drew's son-in-law, arrived in email last week. Just now, taking a closer look, I could see how the sun is like an angel's head with reddish orange wings spread out over the water. The golden wake, her body. The expanse on the horizon is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, a 17-mile stretch to the Eastern Shore. Angels bridge the world of the unseen to the seen.

Often we travel this way to New York, preferring the idyllic country side to the fast pace Interstate. If you would like to linger on the bridge, you'll find a gift shop and newly remodeled restaurant where you can eat and enjoy the view. I took a picture of this parking sign on our last trip.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Angel Crossing


Last Friday not only did we get a blessing from Earl veering away from the beach but I was also able to do my angel lecture at the ARE. All agreed that prayer and meditation helped redirect the hurricane's path. Friends who are gifted with second sight could see the different healing modalities used to calm the storm as more and more souls gathered in prayerful meditation.

I received another blessing that afternoon. With time to spare before my angel talk, I was nudged to visit the library on the second floor. One of the largest metaphysical libraries in the world, I'm not the only person who has noticed how the perfect book happens to make it into one's hands. The library also takes book donations for resale to supplement their budget. Because of the storm threat that day, the book tables were covered with plastic tarps in case of a leaky ceiling. Lifting one of the covers, I found Angel Crossing by Susan Kaney tucked underneath. Jayne Howard, author of Communing with Angels, had written the foreword. I smiled, reading of her encouragement to read and re-read Psalm 91. It was Psalm 91 that helped me get enough courage to step out and start speaking on the angels. So, I bought the book and sat down in the rocking chair passing the time before the lecture.

Now I've read lots of books on angels, but this one was by far the best. The purity of the messages touched a deep wellspring in my soul and I found myself teary eyed, reading what I know as the truth about God and the Angels. Angel Crossing tells of a five day hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina and a chance meeting with an Angel. While the book may seem fictional, it compacts over 25 years of Susan's genuine spiritual experiences into a five day story. This fast read (158 pages) takes you on an unforgettable journey that can't help but open your heart to God's unconditional love.

The book written in 2000 is available on //www.amazon.com/Angel-Crossing-Susan-Kaney/dp/0967886309/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1283877158&sr=1-5


Wishing you a joyful day with your Angels.
