Harvest Of Angels

~*Marge Tindal*~

Do you think He came and harvested angels
on that day perceived in disbelief ?
Cut down before their ripening was complete
leaving us in our sorrow and our grief
I need to believe He got the cream of the crop
and now holds them in Heaven's pantry

I need to believe He took them all
to the seasoning of the sun
For nothing else makes sense to me
and I'm not the only one

So I pray ...
Oh Lord, I pray
I need to believe ~

A beautiful vision, Marge

A friend hears the song in my heart, and sings it to me when my memory fails.

Marge:  I firmly believe there are new angels in Heaven!  How could it be otherwise,
given the circumstances? Believe! Lovely poem.

Thank you wonderful friends ...
Now I share something that was sent to me from a dear friend in Texas, after she had read this piece which I e-mailed her ...



It was sent to her by a friend she used to work with ... said to have been drawn by a nine year old girl ... I wish I knew the artist's name so I could write to her.
If anyone happens to locate this original piece on the Internet, I would appreciate you e-mailing me the URL.

Thank you and God bless us in the healing~
*Hugs*

Sigh, they are in good company, Marge, for all the ones that fought or died for our freedoms, They are no less the caliber of the front line soldier, for these were the first casualties of the new war, and gave their lives so that this torn country of ours could regroup, rebelieve, and stamp out the scourges of this world, so all could never have to fear such again..very well, done...very gentle smile

Margie girl darling sister of my heart I know HE harvested angels, I know he gathered them to him. And to show how much HE loves us HE graced us with you. HE planted you here to minister HIS words of love to us. Do I believe still in HIS love? YES, I know that HE holds each of us in HIS arms.

Someone asked me how my loving GOD could allow this to happen. HE doesn't allow it to happen, it happened because there is a war between good and evil, and evil wil never win. HE loves us, HE really does.

Wonderfully writing Margie, as always you have created a truly outstanding piece of art. I love you for who you are for your strength of spirit and for the way you give of yourself without holding back. God bless you and keep you always.

The artwork by the little girl, I might have an answer there. Paula sent me it, she might might know, so I'll ask her.

Take care
Love and warm stuff
as always
Mushy

God be with you dearest heart sister, and I shall walk beside you too.
    


Take back the hope you gave,- I claim
Only a memory of the same
Robert Browning

Dearest Friends of the Circle~
I find as much inspiration in the joy and wisdom of your replies as I did in the questions that caused me to pen this piece to begin with ...
Thank you all ... God bless you~
Much love~

Nan~
Thank you dear lady~
I wrestle with demons of someone else's making ...
and have to work out the best way for me to deal with them ...
this helps me ... and just maybe will help another~

Marge-
   This touched me, my friend...

       "I need to believe"

   Me too, sweet friend...me too.
  
   I'm so glad you shared the drawing too.
   It actually gave me goosebumps...good ones.
   We can learn so much from children if we
   just watch and listen.
  
   Love you bunches,
   ~Vicky
