Angels.Angels in Bible stories.
Angels in and out of our lives.
Michael: defeater of dragons, destroyer of evil.
Raphael: matchmaker, healer, traveller.
Gabriel: messenger, teller of truth.
And another name, Lucifer,
the brilliant one, who fell from the heavens,
the son of the morning,
the star of the dawn.
Angels whose names are not known to us:
making Sarah laugh, and Jacob limp,
and Balaam tremble;
letting Peter out of prison,
Questioning angels and challenging angels,
guardian angels who cradle little ones,
angels who see travellers safely home
and safeguard stumbling feet.
Angels all around us.
full of truth
and full of glory,
bright with joy.
