Angels We Have Heard on High

Dear Friends,

Do you hear what I hear?

It is the sound of...angels!

What do they sound like?

To me, they are the voices of my friends and family, and of strangers who have been kind to me. They are the voices of musicians and performers whose work I love. They are the often silent voices of our animal companions. They are the voices of those who have gone before us, marked with the sign of peace, as the priest says at a Roman Catholic Mass.

At this time of year, angels are everywhere, if you know where to find them.

I went looking for angels today, and found some in different places.

From my friend, an altered heart with a sweet little girl angel.

From watercolorqueen on Etsy, this beautiful angel with a Pembroke Welsh corgi.

A couple of years ago, I bought two of Cindi's prints of angels with Scotties for a family member, who just loved them. She's got all sorts of prints of angels with many different critters. Visit her shop if you don't know what to buy for the animal lover in your life!

Here's something unusual: An angel pin made from beach glass. Terribly sweet!

And for a softer approach...a beautiful felted wool fairy! I love her shades of blue.

I also love these cute (and affordable) angel earrings.

And I have just listed this angel bookmark in my Etsy shop. She also comes in shades of aqua and seafoam green, which I have not listed yet, so if you're interested, please drop me a line!

At this busy time, try to remember to listen for the angels' songs.

I hope you hear them--
