Angels are widely believed to be helpers and intermediaries between God and humankind.
Creatures of intensely blinding light, they often "turn down" their brilliance and assume normal human form to walk among us as they fulfill their specific missions.
People who study angels believe that the light of an angel is so intense
because they originate from the highest light source: God. They have been
known to have physical strength so incredible that they can perform other
Join us as we explore some exciting modern-day encounters with Christmas
angels. But first let's go back to the beginning.
According to the Bible, the first Christmas angel
appeared to Mary and told her that she would have a
son called Jesus. Joseph was also visited by a Christmas angel who told him
what his role in this world-changing event would be.
After Jesus was born, another group of Christmas angels appeared to the Wise Men, as
well as to a circle of Bethlehem shepherds, The shepherds
found the stable where the child Jesus lay, When the Wise Men arrived,
they gave the first Christmas presents ever - gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Today Christmas angels are alive and well, appearing just in time to help
save or comfort their human friends. They appear to us in a variety of
disguises, But their mission is obvious. They are sent to help people in
times of great need.
I will always remember the touch of my Christmas angel. When I was expecting
my second child, I went to spend some time with my parents for Christmas, We
had a really warm and beautiful Christmas celebration. I needed their
support badly since my husband,
Frank, had passed away suddenly in a car accident just months before.
I really was coming home for a much-needed spiritual rest.
What happened occurred on the day after Christmas. Dad and Mom had left to
return some presents to the store. I was coming down the stairs and tripped.
I didn't have a chance to grab hold of the banister to steady myself - I
felt myself starting to fall. Instantly, I felt two large but gentle hands
place me upright again.
I then had half a second to grab onto the banister in shock. I had actually
felt these invisible hands steady me!
Now, I had always believed in God and in the possibility that angels might
But I was absolutely certain that those helping hands belonged to my
guardian angel. There's no other logical explanation.
It was an experience that I will always remember and be eternally thankful
After all if I had fallen down those stairs, I might have miscarried and
lost my precious baby.
My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at
Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a
little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the
great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some
hidden part in all of us that screams out, (I BELIEVE IN MORE THAN WHAT I SEE AROUND ME.) You see, somewhere deep down inside we all
believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of
us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is
in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of
Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.
The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.
The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
