Angels --- From a Child's Perspective

A friend sent me this in an email, and I thought it was just too precious!!!!!

Angels Explained By Children

I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.

-Gregory, 5

Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it

-Olive, 9

It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.

-Matthew, 9

Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.

-Mitchell, 7

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.

-Henry, 8

Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!

-Jack, 6

Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead.

-Daniel, 9

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado.

-Reagan, 10

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.

-Sara, 6

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.

-Jared, 8

All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.

-Antonio, 9

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.

- , 9

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.

-Vicki, 8

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.

-Sarah, 7

Thanks for the laughs. I don't know how anyone could choose a favorite.

I got your message about the bucket list. I surely don't have one and have no intention of ever feeling the need to.
As for my friend. She was only just beginning to live. She had a child who was sick at birth. His entire life he needed round the clock care. She stayed at his bedside day and night. He passed two yrs ago and only just one year ago did she pursue her dreams. She was happy and vibrant. Doing everything she wanted to do.
Two months ago she woke up one morning and her hand was weak and trembling. She went to get out of bed and her legs wouldn't hold her. She has gotten worse every day since. You can't help but be angry and ask yourself why her?

Like a little child we are to come to Him - and I believe He is chuckling as they whisper their thoughts in prayers. Thanks - hope all is well and you are gaining strength every day

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.
