Fall was my favorite season in Alaska, so naturally I loved this photo of Angel Rocks that I recently found on the web.  In the early 70's, while living in Fairbanks for two long wintersI was unaware of the presence of angels watching over me.  In hindsight, I can see how they were one morning while driving alone in minus -40 degree temp.  through thick ice fog to the University of Alaska where I worked at the Institute of Northern Forestry.  The car heater was set on high, blasting lukewarm, and my driving glasses began frosting up. Warmly dressed in a heavy parka and thick Eskimo boots, my feet were beginning to feel like two blocks of ice as the chains on my tires clanked along, digging into the hard packed layers of snow on the road. I was almost at work when the side view mirror on the Firebird snapped off like a twig... but I managed to plow on to victory, rolling into the parking lot with four squared tires.

  Living in the arctic deep freeze, you had to plug into an electrical post every two hours for a recharge.  These units were available everywhere--at home, at work, downtown,  No one could afford to go anywhere for long without getting a recharge or the circulating system in your car would freeze up.  

Now, I'm so thankful to know angels abide in our everyday lives.  I'm sure you can reflect on times when you were in a tight spot and ...somehow you were transported to victory, thanks to unseen help along the way.   

If only we could remember to plug in to our angels at least every two hours during the day--no telling where that charge would safely guide us. And, it only takes a silent moment to make that loving connection any time or any place.  
Enjoy your day charged with Angels. 

Joyful blessings,
