I'm having a bit of trouble. I've had the idea that I want to blog about angels for the past couple of days but the words just won't come out. The other night on Twitter @LizK_is asked me to one day tell her why angels are special to me, and as I knew there was no way I could express that in a tweet, I thought I could blog about it. But here I am, trying to blog about it and have been for days. Why won't the words come out?
I want to talk about all sorts of things like the books I've read and movies I've seen about angels...and the few times that I've felt angels were present...and the way the word 'angel' kept popping into my head every time I tried to think of a name for baby no.2...and why my Twitter name is @mumto2angels...and how I believe there are angels in heaven and Earth Angels...but I just can't get it out without sounding like a six year old little girl who believes in fairies and princesses and angels.
But perhaps that's it. Words just don't sufficiently express what I feel and believe. Angels resonate with me and you can believe in something without physical evidence and factual knowledge...according to my understanding, that is faith. And I have faith in angels and a power/force greater than us, I call 'it' God but there are so many other words that are just as good as God. I don't need proof, I just know. Sometimes we have to be as trusting and innocent as a six year old child to have true faith.
