In the Company of Angels




On this newest day of life, we can be assured that we are in the company of angels.

They protect us here on earth as well as accompany our loved ones to the other realm of life.

It is always heartbreaking to lose, through death,  someone we love.

At such times, it may feel like our hearts are breaking.

The sorrow we feel is really a reflection of how much we are going to miss the person we love. 

We can be rest assured, however,  one day we will meet that loved one again in a far more beautiful and peaceful place.

For all those who temporarily "lost" a loved one today, know that the angels are around you.

They will give you strength and the deep peace of God as well as of His heavenly hosts.  

WHAT WAS YOUR LAST ENCOUNTER WITH ANGELS PROTECTING YOU?

A Quest for Peace


Looking back over your life, have you had many quests?

Right now, as I enter what is probably the last part of my earthly life, my quest is for peace.

I don't want just plain, ordinary, relaxing peace.  


What I have in mind is deep, soul-stirring peace.

Some of the ways to do this are to meditate, pray, help others, concentrate on Almighty God,  and be out in nature.

 This life is so precious. 

We have been given so much eye-popping beauty.

I want to cherish it all and appreciate every moment of life.


Hubs is a wonderful companion, accompanying me on walks to places such as the one pictured in this post. 

It's a walking trail by the side of a truly picturesque, beautiful lake in Western Massachusetts.

                              (See the walking trail above?  Look at the gorgeous setting by the side of the lake.)

We look over our long life together, talk about so many things, and, of course, pray to the Creator of such majestic vistas. 

It's all contributing to my quest.

WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR OWN QUESTS IN LIFE?

Flowers, Flowers, in the Garden? No, on the Wall


Once before on this blog, we shared a particularly beautiful floral wall arrangement.

You can read a previous post here:  

It's housed in an ornate, very Victorian-looking umbrella holder.


However, it bears repeating because it's so lovely.



I admire it every time I go into the dining room.

A long-time high school friend, Patti, made it for me.


She's extremely artistic and can create beauty out of nothing!  




Not everyone can do that.

So just enjoy the dining room wall decor through the photographs in this post.


DO SOME OBJECTS IN YOUR HOME REMIND YOU OF DEAR FRIENDS?
