When Angels Visit...
My new friend, Mary, in DeLand, shared this wonderful explanation of angels shortly after we met. Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy explains that "they are pure thoughts from God."
"When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts. Oh, may you feel this touch,--it is not the clasping of the hands nor a loved person present; it is more than this: it is a spiritual idea that lights your path!
The Psalmist saith: "He shall give His angels charge over thee." God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for tomorrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment. What a glorious inheritance is given to us through the understanding of omnipresent Love! More we cannot ask: more we do not want: more we cannot have. This sweet assurance is the "Peace, be still" to all human fears, to suffering of every sort."
Truly when we still our minds, divine inspiration comes on the wings of Love. What a comforting thought that He has given His angels charge over us.
