More about the title of today’s blog latter. I struggle at times to find things to write about, ignoring the fact that life itself has enough things to ponder and sometimes even change the way we see things. This past week our faith community lost a lady of immense faith whom I am sure was an angel to all that knew her. “Angels Among Us” is a song written by Don Goodman and Becky Hobbs and recorded by Alabama, a country music band. The song was released in December 1993. When I heard that Karen has passed it immediately came to my mind. That coupled with my bible study class which had decided this past week to take a break from our study of John and talk about Angels, well life made a point. Never knew that Angels had a hierarchy and each step the of the way they had certain responsibilities according to their place in the hierarchy. You know me or should if you have read any of my posts, I value simplicity. Here is the simple explanation of those whom God has assigned to comfort us. There is no better way to put it than to just reprint here a portion of the lyrics from the song “Angels Among Us”
Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love.
When life held troubled times
And had me down on my knees
There’s always been someone
To come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger
To lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend
Just to say I understand
Now ain’t it kind of funny
At the dark end of the road
Someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.
( Lyrics By Don Goodman and Becky Hobbs)
The lyrics of this song give me comfort and I can say with blessed assurance that with Karen May’s passing, God has called another Angel home. We all can be an Angel at sometime in life, just look at the lyrics of the song, the list is simple acts meant to comfort others, we all have at one time or another done at least one or more on that list. Be an Angel to someone……….
Life is Good
