Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14 (NIV)

Dear Niece, Marissa:

You never thought you'd ever see
an angel in your house.
But, one day when you least foresaw,
one slipped in, quiet as a mouse.

She was dressed in white, flowing robes
with big white wings, so lovely to see.
She told you, "Don't be afraid,"
so you sat still as you could be.

To Nana she said, "Close your eyes."
Then poof! She whisked her away.
She spirited her to heaven above
to live in an eternal day.

Oh, you miss your Nana so very much,
and you don't cry so often now.
You know she's in heaven with her own mom,
and you'll see them some day, some how.

Now, hug your mommy and kiss her "good night"
and tell her you love her too.
Say your prayers and tell Nana you miss her
for you know she always loved you.

In time, you'll forget that an angel came.
But, your mommy will remember forever
when an angel took your Nana "Home."
One day you will again be together.

Father, please bless this innocent little girl and her
family. They realize that true blessings come from You.
Bless those that read this poem, that, whatever age they are,
like a child, they may still believe in angels. Amen

Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser.
So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun,
explore and make a lot of memories.
