Angel on my Shoulder

There’s an angel on my shoulder,
Though I’ve never heard her sing,
I know she keeps me safe each day
And close beneath her wing.
My angel does not
Play a harp or rest
In clouds all day.
She’s much too busy
Guarding me,
Keeping me from
Harm’s way.
She rejoices in
My life’s success
And weeps when
I’m in pain.
She picks me up
When I have failed
And helps me try again.
Tonight I’ll say a prayer for her,
And thank the Lord above
For sending me an angel
To lead me with her love.

Beautiful poem.

Have you got an angel on your shoulder? Have you thanked God for sending you an angel?

Angels Wish by Steven Curtis Chapman :

Was God smiling when He spoke the word and made the world?
And did He cry about the flood?
What does God’s voice sound like when He sings, when He’s angry?
These are just a few things that the angels have on me

Well, I can’t fly at least not yet
I’ve got no halo on my head
And I can’t even start to picture heaven’s beauty
But I’ve been shown the Savior’s love
The Grace of God has raised me up
To show me things the angels long to look into
And I know things the Angels only wish they knew

I have seen the dark and desperate place where sin will take you
I’ve felt loneliness and shame
And I have watched the blinding light of grace
Come breaking through with a sweetness only tasted
By the forgiven and redeemed

And someday I’ll sit down with my angel friends
Up in heaven
And they’ll tell me about Creation
And I’ll tell them a story of Grace

Well, I can’t fly at least not yet
I’ve got no halo on my head
And I can’t even start to picture heaven’s beauty
But I’ve been shown a Savior’s love
The Grace of God has raised me up
To show me things the angels long to look into
And I know things the Angels only wish they knew
