He Shall Give His Angels Charge Over Thee

I have a strong spiritual belief, but am not a religious person in a traditional sense.  Last Sunday my husband and I spent the weekend with my daughter.  Our little one year old granddaughter was going to be baptized during their Sunday church service.   I was surprised when I saw what the sermon was going to be.  The story of Abraham and his son Isaac, a story of faith and sacrifice from the bible.  You may remember that Abraham was willing to sacrifice his greatest treasure, his only son, when he was asked to by God.  The odd thing about this was that I had been discussing this biblical story with my husband a week or two before this and finding it very difficult to understand.  There were many times during the service that I had tears streaming down my face.  I identified so strongly with this.

On our return trip home my husband and I stopped to buy some lattes for the road.  As we were walking to the store I noticed a license plate on a car that read "PSALM91".  I didn't know what psalm that was, but I made a note to look it up when we got home. There was another car just two spaces away with a license plate that read "BJOYFUL".  About half an hour later as we were driving home I saw a license plate that had letters that was an abbreviation of "trust in him," but I don't remember exactly how they abbreviated it.  

That was three different biblical/spiritual references within an hour of each other after that church service. I knew they were messages. When we arrived home I looked up Psalm 91 (   It is a prayer of protection.  The part I was familiar with is this:  "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."  I have been thinking about these things this past week, and was further amazed yesterday when I saw a post by a facebook friend early in the day about psalm 91! To top that off, another facebook friend had posted about psalm 91 later in the day!  What are the odds?

A New Artistic Endeavor

Anything creative is very healing.  I have found comfort in cooking, decorating, knitting, and of course, my poetry.  I am being guided toward painting now.  Last month I started taking painting classes from a local Art teacher who has a strong connection with angels.  I never know what I am going to paint.  It is purely inspirational with some guidance with the basics from my teacher.  I have never painted before.  Last night was my third class.  Look what I painted!  I am walking out in faith on this new journey.

Signs and messages

The past few days have been filled with signs and messages. I'd like to share them to show the many different ways that we can receive messages. It would be easy to rationalize away some signs. They are so often small things. I think we tend to feel that signs will come in some big way. Sometimes they do. We have to let our minds get out of the way and accept what we intuitively understand. I have been learning over time to be more conscious of the world of spirit and the way the universe speaks to us.
Monday night while I was in bed my motion activated alarm in my basement that gives a doorbell ring in my bedroom went off three different times by the time I got up! Each time it did three doorbell rings - ding dong, ding dong, ding dong. Usually when the alarm goes off it only happens once in the wee hours of the morning. There has never been anyone in the basement. We know it is my son staying in touch! :)
Yesterday while I was driving I saw a van that said "ANGEL RIDES" on the side. A little further I saw a big commercial truck with graphics and the words "ALMOST HEAVEN". When I got home I opened a Lenox Holiday catalog that came in the mail. On the very first page there was a Christmas ornament of a dove with the word GRACE on it! Three different heavenly things within a half hours time. I don't believe they were coincidental.
A couple of hours later I was listening to an internet radio show on blog talk radio.  I was signed into the chat room.  I was so surprised when Pamela said that she had a message for me from my son!   Once a month she devotes her show to messages from Heaven.  Here is a link to her show.
 After that I had a Metaphysical meet-up group meeting. The topic was mediumship. When I was leaving the building to come home I heard a song drifting up from the lower level. It was "I'm Already There" by Lonestar! It was a wonderful way to have the day end.   I put a link to it below - enjoy listening to this song.

You'll Be In My Heart

A few days ago my husband and I went to our local mall to do a little shopping.  We were looking at a holiday display of Lenox china items and noticed a beautiful angel figurine.  The angel is holding a heart in her hands.  This angel was with the holiday items but can be used at any time.   She was so symbolic and meaningful to us.  We bought her in our son's loving memory.

After this I went to the card store in the mall.  I was looking for Thanksgiving cards for my parents and my daughter and son-in-law.   It is always bittersweet to buy cards for holidays now. Thanksgiving can be especially difficult.  I was thinking about my son as I started reading the different cards.  The next thing I knew the Phil Collins song "You'll Be In My Heart" came on in the store. I started to cry.  I knew that Graham was talking to me.   It wasn't until an hour ago that it dawned on me that the angel figurine holding a heart was the prelude to the song message and tied it all together!  Thank you, Graham.  Thank you for being our loving son. Love is always and forever. ♥
