"Wouldn't it be wonderful if, as you read these words, an angel whispers in your ear, speaking of God's unconditional love for you...words you can hear if you listen carefully?"
-Mitch Finley, Everybody Has A Guardian Angel


Hi. My name is Angellady2. This page is dedicated to God and his mighty army of angels. This page contains thoughts about angels collected on my spiritual journey. I hope you enjoy. This page, like the person, is constantly changing by the grace of God. May God bless you and your family.


"What do angels do on earth"?

  • They serve as guardian angels.
  • They do battle for God.
  • They give encouragement.
  • They strengthen people.
  • They act as messengers.
  • They guide and direct people.
  • They come at the time of our physical deaths.


"Whether we can see angels or not, whether they come as ordinary-looking people or as apparitions, they are indeed evidence of miraculous intervention...answers to prayer. Angels act as liaisons between heaven and earth. The word "angel" comes from the Greek word meaning "messenger". Of course, God often touches us directly. But angels are mentioned more than three hundred times in Scripture, so God obviously intended them to play an important part in his plan."
-Joan Wester Anderson, Where Miracles Happen

angel of the LORD standing in the  way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned  aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam  smote the ass, to turn her into the way.
           24 But the
angel of the LORD stood in a path of the  vineyards, a wall [being] on this side, and a wall on that side.
           25 And when the ass saw the
angel of the LORD, she thrust  herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the  wall: and he smote her again.

           1. And an

           6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of   God came unto me, and his countenance [was] like the countenance of an

           15. And Manoah said unto the
angel of the LORD, I pray thee,  let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid for  thee.
           16 And the
angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Though thou  detain me, I will not eat of thy bread: and if thou wilt  offer a burnt offering, thou must offer it unto the LORD. For  Manoah knew not that he [was] an angel of the LORD.
           17 And Manoah said unto the
angel of the LORD, What [is] thy  name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee  honour?
           18 And the
angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou  thus after my name, seeing it [is] secret?
           19 So Manoah took a kid with a meat offering, and offered  [it] upon a rock unto the LORD: and [the
angel] did wonderously; and Manoah and his wife looked on.
           20 For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven   from off the altar, that the
angel of the LORD ascended in  the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on  [it], and fell on their faces to the ground.
           21 But the
angel of the LORD did no more appear to Manoah  and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he [was] an angel of  the LORD.

1 SAMUEL

1 KINGS

          1 Kings 13:18

1 KINGS

          1 Kings 19:5
           5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then  an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise [and] eat.

This is a list of twenty-two things angels did in Bible times. The list could go to nearly three hundred additional acts and actions. Nearly three hundred times we see angels doing something for our Lord. If we could hear from everyone since Bible times - everyone throughout history who had ever had one experience with angels, the list would be momumental. What a witness to God's love that would be!

"Lord, may we be ever more alert for even the smallest brush of an angel's wing".

"The more I love and work at loving, the more I hear God's whispers".

"The more we work toward being what the Lord intended, that much more He makes it possible for us to be what He intended. And this,too, is true: The more we work at becoming what He intended, that much more the angels come to help us be what He intended".

"Since God is love and angels exist to manifest and serve Him, then what angels do is to reveal, prove, and display God's love."

"God's angels work as invisible weavers in the tapestry of our lives...and what beautiful designs unfold when we follow".

"All of us on earth are not first bodies with souls. First we are souls with bodies."

"I believe in a loving God whose angels are never far away. And if I let them, they will guide me to those I should meet for his purposes."

"Day, night, evening, early morning, anytime....With direction, assurance, comfort, advice, warning, or tidings of great joy He comes. And how many times will His message come by an angel? Many".

"I believe that the God who created us did not go off and leave us. In His love He is constantly trying to reach us, lead us, guide us. Or maybe He wants to warn us, detour us, perhaps bring us to an abundant stop for our own good. I believe that all around us, all the time, His angels are there wanting to direct us. And for what reason? Because He loves us. So why don't experience His blessings more often? Is it because we are too busy, too preoccupied, trying to run our lives our way? Yet all the time He is waiting with His Holy nudges, Holy whispers, Holy surprises, Holy angels. Always he wants to bless us, use us, love us with the wonders of His love."

The above are some of my favorite quotes from Charlie W. Shedd's, Brush of an Angel's Wing.



"See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way..." Exodus 23:20


"For He shall give His angels charge over thee in all thy ways." -Psalm 91:11



"Coincidence is God's way of performing a miracle anonymously." -Anonymous


"The farther we go along the path os God, the more angels we shall encounter." -Dr. H.C. Moolenburgh, A Handbook of Angels


"It is very important to pray for others, because when you pray for someone, an angel goes and sits on the shoulder of that person." -The Virgin Mary, to the children at Medjugorje-


"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, 'This is the way, walk in it'." -Isaiah 30:21


"One thing is certain: Every time you open the Bible, there's a rustle of angels." -Marilynn Carlson Webber and William D. Webber, A Rustle of Angels


"The angels do not seek or want our homage or worship, but only our love, trust, and cooperation in carrying out the Will of God. Their only purpose is to serve God."

"Along with love, the qualities most closely associated with angels include joy, comfort, and peace...Be willing to extend love, joy, comfort, and peace to the people around you."

"When a message comes from God, we must be ready to receive it."

"Turning a problem over to God and His angels can yield surprising results."

"God doesn't force His love upon us, or coerce us into expressing it to others. Neither do His messengers, the angels. It has to be our choice."

"In large matters and small, angels help to smooth our paths for us. They enrich our lives with joy, peace, and love. And they are great company! What more could one ask of a friend?"

"Each of us is imbued with the spirit of God, and this spirit will guide us in every aspect of life if we still ourselves and listen for its voice."

The above are quotes from Robert C. Smith's, In the Presence of Angels


"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." -Hebrews 13:2


"I greeted the tall suited man at my cash register. 'Two scrambled egg breakfasts, two orange juices, two coffees,' he said. 'On separate trays.' While assembling the order, I wondered if his wife or a friend was waiting at a table. 'That'll be $6.00,' I said. As I made change, he picked up one tray and leaned toward me. 'Give the other tray to the person behind me,' he said, and stepped aside. Then I saw the next customer - a man with stringy gray hair, tattered clothes, and a bag of empty cans clutched at his side. God's love had come to a fast-food restaurant." -Bertie Kirchhofer, Chicago, Illinois, Guideposts Magazine, 1994


"In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word for angel is mal'akh. In the New Testament, the Greek word is aggelos. Both words mean 'messenger', one of the most frequent duties assigned to angels. The word 'angel' is applied in Scripture to heavenly beings whose business it is to act as God's Messengers to men and as agents who carry out His will." -Terry Lynn Taylor, Messengers of Light


"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
