My angel

For us Catholics, we are now celebrating the feast day of our Archangels St. Rafael, St. Michael and St. Gabriel. In connection with this we are holding daily novena prayers and masses.

We are always reminded that we have our own angels that keep protecting us from harm and temptations. Since childhood we were told that we should ask their help whenever we need them and they will respond. I believed that they are our intercessors to the Lord.

In honor with them, i would like to share this poem.

My angel
by: Thomas G. Huckaby Jr.

From the moment I came into this world, and opened my big brown eyes. I knew that I was looking at an Angel, because the heart it never lies.

Through all of life's hard struggles, this Angel has always been there. Always hanging on when the ride got rough, always showing how much she cares.

For life is a constant struggle, more now than ever before. Much too hard for an Angel, oh how I wish I could give her more.

The days they pass so quickly. Each one faster than the last. But we know that we must go forward, and not dwell on mistakes of the past.

And so we venture on through this hateful world, though my Angel she is always calm. So I'll follow on always together with this Angel that I call mom.


  1. I enjoyed this entry very much.

  2. I am happy to know that everything is alright with you, and your family. I wondered how many of my new friends were doing. I worried about where they were located as I am not very good in figuring out exactly where everyone is . The stories that show on TV are so heartbreaking.


love to hear your precious comment
