The Angel Collection … Written by Gabby Angel


The Collection

It keeps growing. I thought of this just today, when I made my dusting rounds. Again promising myself I didn’t really need anymore. I have so many angels, the statue variety I mean.

Guardian Angel

Also  a guardian angel, who is always hanging with me. I can’t see her, but sure do hear her loud and clear sometimes. I also hear tell I have a few more that tend to hang around me, too. Which is a blessing, I can use all the help I can get.

Calm and happy

About my angel statues, it’s a fairly large collection. I have them scattered all around my house. A large white ceramic angel sets outside my door, standing guard so to speak. I know she’s a special angel … So far nobody has been tempted to make off with  her! 😉

These angels really do bring me comfort, and an unexplained calmness. Off and on over the years I have picked up statues of these beautiful beings. When when of them catches my eye and not all of them do by the way. For the ones who speak to me, I just need to buy that particular one and it and bring it on home with me. Most of them are quite unique in some way, I am not really drawn to the line produced variety. If I’m going to collect something, I have to do it my way.

Angels Everywhere 🙂

My husband Dave could pick out an angel here and there, he had the touch. Autumn also actually had one comissoned for me as a surpise one Christmas. It’s a hanging type, fairly large stained glass angel. 🙂  It is simply the most beautiful one I have ever seen, I will always cherish this angel she is a special on for sure.

I of course have a few pairs of angel earrings, being the collector of earrings, too. A couple of my angel globes are pretty awesome, each one plays a different tune. Having some shelves and cabinets here and there are quite handy for housing some of my angels. From time to time I look around, telling myself I don’t need anymore.

I try to resist the urge to multiply my collection, but some of them just seem to be calling out to me. In silent words maybe only I can hear 😉 I was kind of reaching on that excuse, No I don’t hear voices! No one needs to worry about me, honestly. 😉

Seriously, I could be collecting a lot weirder things…So far, I am finding plenty of space for them. From time to time I have given angels as gifts, especially to my nieces. They have been very well received, especially the one niece. I think I have her hooked, she’s got a very nice little collection going of her own by now.

My stuffed angel bear…It was  given to me by  my husband, that one  has a special place of honor. It sits on my own little childhood rocking chair. Anyway, I just love angels I am sure my collection will keep growing. I really and truly do just love my angels…My statues and also the ones I can’t see.  I have lots of books about angels and yes, I know and I’ve read quite a lot.

Remember

The angels we don’t see, or perhaps entertain unknowingly are the very best kind. 11:11

Poems ~by Autumn Sunshine


Empty

Empty spaces

and faces

no traces

gone from this place

no emotions remain it seems

it means

hope is almost lost

at such a cost

changing world…..

a wish for a new tomorrow

with no more sorrow

don’t borrow

the pain

just remain

with one more hope it will last

into the future

forget the past

It’s a shiny new day……

 

 

Finished
I am done

only just begun

and I run

along the shore

add some more

if you want to

I do

the best I can

and I ran

so far and fast

enough to last

so long

and so wrong

never right

no end in sight

and I might

go sail away

today

or find a new way

I want to leave this place

find a new face

where I belong….
