Setting an Angel Free: An Angel Message

Many years ago, an elderly friend, at Mom's retirement center, gifted me with a special tree ornament.  A handmade lacy little angel. I can still remember Helene's sweet smile. Each stitch is made with love. 

Before the angel could serve her purpose, the loosely sewn threads tying her down on red felt had to be gently snipped.  When the card was turned over, it was easy to see which threads to cut.

It may sound strange, but I felt uplifted to have helped free an angel.  No longer materially bound, she could soar.

In that moment, I realized the loosening of the angel was perhaps a heavenly metaphor on how we may choose to live our lives.  When we lovingly cut the ties that selfishly bind our loved ones and hold them back, they too can fly free and serve their purpose.   
May all of our knots be love knots, and may we not get so tangled up in the material world that we forget our true spiritual identity as a child of God.  

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,

Rae Karen
