I recall when just a little child
This picture on my Gramma's wall...
Two children crossing o'er a bridge...
An Angel there in case they'd fall.
And I recall my Gramma's words
Of an Angel watching me.
I've never doubted what she said...
Her words still ring so truthfully.
Because I have a Guardian Angel...
God's assigned him to my care.
The Bible tells me that I do
Because I am salvations' heir.
He's always watching over me...
I will never be neglected.
Though Satan tries to lie to me...
I really feel I am protected.
I believe right at conception
That an Angel comes to guard
Every newborn human being
And that he's sent here by the Lord.
I recall many an instance
Driving roads of yesterday...
Where I may have not survived
Seems I was pushed out of the way.
And I recall the premonitions...
Don't go here or don't go there...
Like someone whispered in my ear
Alerting me I should beware.
And only later would I learn
Of some horrendous tragedy...
Where I could have been a victim
Had my Angel not warned me.
Angels will take human form...
To help out in man's affairs.
I think some of us just may have
Entertained an Angel unwares.
When the final trump is blown
And my life on Earth is done...
I believe my Guardian Angel
Will carry me Home to The Son.

Here is a true story that has been around for some time. In 1944, the penniless wife of a pastor and evangelist
in Switzerland, Susie Ware prayed, “God, I need five pounds of potatoes, two pounds of pastry flour, apples, pears, a cauliflower, carrots, veal cutlets for Saturday, and beef for Sunday.” A few hours later, someone knocked
on the door, and there was a young man with a basket, who
said, “Mrs. Ware, I am bringing what you asked for.” It
was precisely what she’d prayed for – down to the exact
brand of pastry flour she wanted. Pastor and Mrs. Ware
watched as the young man slipped away, but he never exited
the room – he just disappeared.
For he will command his angels concerning
you to guard you in all your ways;
Hebrews 1:14 -
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister
for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Hebrews 13:2 -
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby
some have entertained angels unawares.
Matthew 24:31 -
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.
The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried.
