Angel of God
My Guardian Dear,
To Whom God's love commits me here,
Forever this day,
be at my side,
to light and guard,
to rule and guide.
To make candy Kiss angels:
Hot glue a bead on top of Kiss and draw in faces, add wings and halo!
Many years ago, I had heard that a person should name their angel. My favorite name was "Anna" so, that is what I named my angel. Then, many years later, I read in a book called "Visions of the Children", a book about the visions of Medjugorje, that we should ask our angels what their names are and they will tell us. We should also ask our angels to do tasks for us, like waking us up, reminding us to pray, little things. Wow, I thought, I never asked my angel her name. So, that morning, I was living by myself at the time, I knelt down and said, "OK, angel, whatever your name is, somehow tell me today." I went to work and forgot about asking what I'd asked of my angel. Later that evening, after work, I stopped by a video store to rent a movie. I never rented old movies or even looked at them, but all the new releases were out, so I started looking at older movies, (which were in alphabetical order, evidently) the first movie I looked, was called "Anna". I picked it up, out of curiosity, because it is my favorite name, it didn't interest me, so I put it back on the shelf, as I put it back on the shelf, I noticed the next movie was called "Angel" and the next movie after that, was called "Angel II". I froze. A moment frozen in time, a prayer answered. That is the best way I can describe a prayer answered directly to you, a moment frozen in time. I was amazed. My angel answered me. I had named her the right name!!!
Ballerina Rosie picked that as her blog name because that's her angel's name, as is Mary Hannah's. Jedi's angel's name is "Mageeta" not sure how he got that one, but he's called her that since he was 2. Babycakes' angel's name is "Colette" and Tom's angel's name is "Jerry". Now, isn't that cute? Tom and Jerry.
This is just my experience with angels.
If I ask my angel to wake me at a certain time, she will. I will awaken, and know it's my angel waking me up. I think it was Padre Pio's angel who used to awaken him, even when he didn't want to be awakened.
I know of one time my angel prevented me from crashing, I felt her touch me. I was driving home from something really late, during the night, I must have been in my mid 20's, and the roads were clear, (so I thought) I started to move into the left lane, and something literally prevented my steering wheel from moving, and WHOOSH! A motorcycle passed me, moving very fast. If I'd hit him, my life would have changed and he probably would have died. I know it was my angel who saved that whole terrible situation from happening. It's a feeling, a moment frozen in time, you just know. I knew it was her.
I love my angel Anna. I am very close to her, at least I feel very close to her. I talk to her daily and know she is there. When I am pregnant, I feel my baby's angel with me and pray to them daily too. When that baby is out, I feel the absense of the baby's angel, even though the angel is with the baby, the angel's task is different, I suppose.
Our angels help us find a parking space every time we park. I always want to be right next to the cart rack, so I don't have to leave the children to put the cart away, and our angels always find that special spot right next to the rack. Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, the grocery store, you name it, it works! (Can you tell those are the only stores I go to?)
Do you have any stories about your angel? Please tell me about it, I'd love to hear about it!!

**It has been brought to my attention through a faithful commenter that naming angels is discouraged according to Catholic Answers. I did look in the Cathecism and there is nothing in there regarding naming your angel. I have edited some of my post, however, this is my experience with angels. I do know why naming angels is discouraged, some people tend to put too much emphasis in angels and not enough on God. I remember many years ago, when that show came out, "Touched By An Angel", around that time, many books came out about angels and stories about angels and I think angels replaced God for many people. This is not the intent of my story and I pray that does not happen to anyone reading my post about angels.
