Angels Always Nearby Childrens Book Ms

*** Angels Always Nearby *** “All day, all night. Angels watching over me, my Lord.” (an old. slavery gospel song lyric) Loving Me always as God has asked them to do… Holding Me even when I may not feel them… Praying With my soul to grow in God-pleasing, God-touching ways… Listening As I breathe or whisper, laugh or cry out… Knowing The words and needs that my heart and mind speak silently inside… Comforting The sadness and pains of my somedays… Seen With their wings draping starlight by my bed as I dream at night… Heard In the chorus of songs my heart and soul joyfully write… To remind me that I am altogether fine and always loved, because I am a child of God… Given Blessings of Love to grace my every new and thankful day… Wearing Their friendship and faith brightly in many colors… Moving Where needed when called or sent, even faster than light, even if needed to cross galaxies… Knowing The hopes God has for me and my own ways To go to help others, my family, and to sing praises to Him Staying Beside me all my life… Guarding The doorways and passages anywhere near my standing up or my resting in bed… God’s good angels are patiently By me always to protect and guide… God’s many angels Come in many types and sizes. Likely, you’ll never truly see an angel At least not one as bright yellow as a lemon Or as gold as the sun; and you’ll probably Never hear a band of invisible angels calmly plucking and strumming green ukelelees. Still, there might be two angels ready to let let it all hang loose in the cosmos Wearing blue shoes and playing kazoos, — happily Too, for just a child as you! And it’s so fun, so easy that you might try to play a kazoo, too! ——————————————————————————————————- This is first draft of a ms, for young children. Each heading will have its pg, w/an illustration by me. I call the illustrated angels for this, “children’s angels,” more in the style of children’s artwork. My hope is this work may foster youngster’s concept of a loving & caring God, also as with His divine gift of protecting angels. Any helpful notes or ideas much appreciated.

God assigned a guardian angel for each of us. Most probably we tend to forget about him. Which is a pity as he is our help,

I agree, Victor. I have periodically written poems to my guardian angel and posted here. I’ve latey called mine, “A.-G.” to better call out in a rush or need. When the need is greater, i will, of course call out for Jesus who is also right here but in an immeasureable way. I can feel my soul discern whom to call when, Thanks , Victor, for believing in mr. xoco

I think the work would appeal to adults also -- wonderful, honest seeking, and braveness to ask the questions...and come to faith alone as answer and be satisfied -- as I have often said of your compositions~ Great poetry! Blessings.

Joe! Again you honor me with your supportive words and i am very humbled. About this same time 4 years ago, i asked to know Christ better in my quick prayer…But a stone moved and indeedeverything did change! Then i prayed, as in the Hillsong song “New Wine’” to offer myself as vessel which profoundly raised the levels. Thank you for the blessings!Hugs
