Yesterday, I got a call from an angel…
(it’s almost Christmas, a busy time for angels, I guess.)
She was about God’s business-visiting the sick,
the lonely, and the forgotten.
(I confess her active creativity put my lethargic heart to shame).
Angels nowadays can use Facetime –
(Who knew!) I got the message too late this time,
But she said she would call again in two weeks –
Then we can visit a very old friend in a nursing home
And she will take the risks and connect us behind a glass wall
With this modern convenience God must have inspired.
But angels are infinitely resourceful!
While there at the nursing home,
Reading Facebook encouragement to our mutual friend,
She called someone else we both love,
(Knowing this person was struggling in turbulent waters,
sometimes overwhelmed and isolated)
She gave her a Facetime opportunity
to love and encourage our friend and to see her beautiful kiddos.
As I thanked the angel for all she had done,
She reminded me of a past we had shared…a time she was overwhelmed…
Of lessons learned- sometimes you give grace and sometimes you receive it
And how we comfort others with the same comfort we have received from the God who loves us.
So grateful for the infinite creativity of God and for this angel who absolutely sparkles with His grace.
(II Cor. 1:3-4)
