Loosen the Angel: An Angel Message

A dear friend, Helene, is a gifted artist as well as an angel collector.  Her beautiful paintings of nature brighten the walls at the retirement center where she lives.   

Helene crocheted this lovely little angel ornament.  Each stitch is made with love, she told me with a smile.   I was touched by her thoughtful gift, a welcomed addition to my flock of Christmas angel ornaments.  

When I turned the card over, I could clearly see the crisp white angel had been hemmed in with loosely basted threads.  I followed the directions:  SNIP THE THREADS.  Voila! The little angel was no longer tied down, but free to take flight.

I realized what a heavenly metaphor for how we can choose to live our lives.  When we cut the ties that bind our loved ones, they too can fly free.   May all of our knots be love knots, and may we not get tangled up in the material world and forget our true identity as a child of God.  

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
