Look for the Angels in Your Life

Too often when we think of ‘Angels’ we think of the beautiful white winged angels with halos.

As far as I’m concerned angels come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and backgrounds. I think that different angels do different things to help us in a variety of different ways.

Most of the angels we’re familiar with are the ones in the bible. If you think about it, study the bible, these angels were sent to help, guide, protect people. Some provide encouragement, aid in times of trouble, or joy.

Thinking about this I started thinking of all the ‘angels’ in my life. As some may know I’ve recently been spending a fair amount of time on Twitter. Are there angels on Twitter? I believe so!

Right off the bat without giving it a second thought I can think of four people on Twitter who to me have been angels. While I also believe that angels can be male or female the four who I think of are all women.

Marie Wikle @spreadingJOY Just like her Twitter handle/id says Marie is spreading joy. Whether it's sharing a cup of coffee in the morning or the terrific Praise Worship hymns in the evening she’s a joy to know. Marie seems to pop onto my Twitter screen just when I need a smile. Her site Spreading Joy Corporation "is dedicated to reminding others that they can make a difference by doing what they can, where they are, with what they have" And, she is a shining example of just that. Thank you Marie!

Bridget Haymond @TruthLifeCoach Talk about a lady that not only makes you think but helps you get there it's Bridget. In her own words, "It is my firm conviction that once you discover who you really are, you are no longer willing to be who you are not" Since meeting Bridget I have become almost addicted to reading her blog and looking forward to her words of encouragement on Twitter. Thank you Bridget!

Cindy Springsteen @CindyTeenAdvice What can I say about this lovely lady? We became really close after spending over 8 hours on Skype Saturday afternoon/night. The conversation started with she only needed 9 more followers on Twitter to hit 2000. She didn't leave it at that though. Cindy was quick to point out I only needed 30 more to hit 1000 followers. For 8 hours she 'introduced' me to over 200 of her best followers. We both hit our goals and beyond that night. Thank you Cindy!

Julie Walraven @JulieWalraven Bridget introduced me to Julie this past week when I became unemployed. I've spent hours reading Julie's blog and have gained a wealth of information to help me in my job search. She has helped me look at myself and the task of job hunting in a different light. I know this will help me land a job I will be far happier with than the one I had. Thank you Julie!
